I’m getting close to releasing DroidPad 2.0 – a completely new version with more features and greater stability. To make sure that everything is working, I’m releasing a beta version for testing, to remove any bugs before final release.
If you would like to test this version then downloads are available below. If DroidPad does crash while running it would be very useful to file a bug report (either for the PC part or the Android part); I can then see where it went wrong and fix it.
The Android part can be downloaded from the Android Market – search for “DroidPad 2.0″. The old version doesn’t have to be uninstalled.
Please report bugs through the Android bug reporter.
NOTE: This new version doesn’t currently work with Windows 64-bit. If you have problems installing the drivers then this is most likely the cause.
First, the old version of DroidPad will have to be uninstalled (PPJoy is redundant and can be uninstalled too – if not prompted to do so during DroidPad’s uninstall, remove it now). Make sure the old version of DroidPad is completely removed from your PC before proceeding.
Next, download the new version (link below). This new version does not require PPJoy at all, and should install automatically.
Reporting Windows Bugs
If something goes wrong or doesn’t happen as expected, please file a bug through the PC bug reporter. If possible please attach the log files; on Windows XP they are located in C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\droidpad, on Windows 7 in C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\droidpad.
DroidPad 2.0 for Ubuntu can be installed using the PPA ppa:w-shackleton/droidpad-daily. This contains latest versions of DroidPad and will be updated with the latest versions.
Installers for other distros aren’t currently provided however a source package can be downloaded here and built manually.
Bugs should also be reported through the PC bug reporter, however please say that the bug is being reported for Linux.
