Looks good but does this have voice/speech enabled?

I am surprised OVI maps doesnt have this and yet they are trying to push it out.

I would love to see TomTom release a version for maemo/meego would be good.

Good idea! I made everything owned by root but readable be everyone, only the folders/files for configs/cache etc. are set as writable for other (which is the user running modRana in this case).
I also added a command to generate all the *.pyc files, which would not be crated automatically because the code folders are read only.

OK, I'll look whats needed for this. This should be easy to do, just some d-bus command or something like that.

Well, not yet. But its in the pipeline for the turn-by-turn navigation functionality (most probably using espeak).

How did you install it? The Extras-devel package is finally usable since 12-6. If you installed a previous build (12-2 - 12-5), there can be problems (notably a missing modrana.desktop file ).

Also If you installed from the linked deb package, I recommend upgrading to the Extras-devel version.

ModRana is finally available in Extras-devel !

The package is called modrana and can be found in the Location&navigation section.

hmmmmmmm..........well modrana.desktop appears but when i launch it, nothing happens. the app quits immediately after about 8 seconds or so of loading.

running it from xterm + root privileges works though.

just installed from -devel and can confirm above. when started from the app mgr it just dissapears. start as user from xterm gives:

~ $ modrana
/usr/bin/modrana: cd: line 2: can't cd to /opt/modrana/
python2.5: can't open file 'modrana.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
~ $

running from xterm as root works fine. app itself looks very good at first glance though, will give it a good try soon, but routing, UI and options all look like it should be the best mapping app for maemo once you get around to adding eSpeak support. Thanks for a great start!

this may be wierd, but after

root
apt-get install modrana

it installed cloudgps


the icon was cloudgps and it launched the program cloudgps.

so i tried


apt-get install modrana

and it said it was already installed.


so i then

apt-get install cloudgps

and it said already installed


then

apt-get remove cloudgps

and it uninstalled the cloudgps


i looked for the modrana icon and nothing.


then, apt-get remove modrana

said it wasnt installed.



then i went to the dev repo and dl vs 6 there. transfered to my device and installed it.


dpkg -i "filename"

it said that it was going to replace the vs. 5!!! yet it said it wasnt installed. lol. confusing.


so after installation, it showed the icon, but crashed upon opening. i uninstalled it and then went directly to the deb file in my folder and opened it to install. after installation, it crashed upon opening.

after trying to open it 6 times with crashes, i have typed this feed for you.
