This tip is only for HP TouchPads running webOS 3.0.5 and LunaCE 4.9.5 or higher

Tweaks - LunaCEOne of the defining features of webOS has always been the gestures that you can use to navigate around the OS. While the release of the TouchPad saw the first webOS device without a

, it still kept many of the same gestures that were found on webOS phones. You could still to minimize a card or to access the Application or Device dropdown menus, but gone was the ability to quickly switch apps with the ). Because, you know, no gesture area was there.

However, once HP released their Open Source for the HP TouchPad (not to be confused with ), the group at was able to bring back the advanced gesture to quickly switch between apps as part of (pronounced "lunacy"), available in . Note that LunaCE is currently in beta so you will need to go through the process to set-up the beta feeds in Preware, which can be found at . In addition, you will need to have installed on your TouchPad to toggle this new feature.

Once you go into the "Luna" section of Tweaks and toggle "Enable Side Bezel Gestures" to YES in the "GESTURES" section, you can then swipe in from either side of the screen to switch to the next open app, based on the direction of you swipe. However, this functions a bit differently depending on if you have also enabled LunaCE's feature and the app is part of a larger .

  • If Tabbed Cards is not enabled, swiping in from the side of the screen will switch to the next app, regardless of it's the next app in the same stack or in a separate stack.
  • If Tabbed Cards is enabled and your current app is not part of a larger stack, swiping in from the bezel will act the same as if Tabbed Cards aren't enabled and just switch you to the next app.
  • If Tabbed Cards is enabled and the app is part of a larger stack, swiping in from the side will first activate the tabbed card functionality and show the remaining cards in that stack as tabs on the side of the screen. You can then swipe in the from bezel again and it will switch to the first card in the next stack.

      I use an IPTV app to watch TV and would like it to start automatically when the TV is switched on. The TV insists switching on with the not working cable TV tuner.
      This is WebOS 5.5

      Relationship to Support Big Data, AI, Connected Cars,
      Digital Transformation and Robotics Applications

      SEOUL, Jan. 10, 2022 – LG Electronics (LG) today announced joining the IBM Quantum Network to advance industry applications of quantum computing. By joining the IBM Quantum Network, LG will receive access to IBM’s quantum computing systems, as well as to IBM’s quantum expertise and Qiskit, IBM’s open-source quantum information software development kit.
      Using IBM Quantum technology, LG aims to explore applications of quantum computing in any areas requiring processing a large amount of data including AI, connected cars, digital transformation, IoT and robotics applications. LG will be able to leverage quantum computing hardware and software advances and applications as they emerge, in accordance with IBM’s

By leveraging IBM Quantum technology, LG will be able to provide workforce training to its employees, permitting LG to investigate how potential breakthroughs can be applied to its industry. Quantum computing is an exciting evolution in computation. While classical computers calculate in bits that represent 0 and 1, quantum computers use qubits that harness quantum mechanical phenomena such as interference and entanglement in computation to solve problems that are fundamentally intractable for classical computers. As a result, quantum computing is well suited to help explore new solutions to a wide range of problems.
      The IBM Quantum team and LG are researching and exploring how quantum computing will help a ‎variety of industries and disciplines, including finance, energy, chemistry, materials science, ‎optimization and machine learning, among many others.
      “Based on our open innovation strategy, we plan to use IBM Quantum to develop our competency in quantum computing,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO and executive vice president of LG Electronics. “We aim to provide customers with value that they have not experienced so far by leveraging quantum computing technology in future businesses.”
      “We’re happy to welcome LG Electronics to a growing quantum computing ecosystem in Korea at an exciting time for the region,” said Jay Gambetta, IBM Fellow and VP, Quantum Computing at IBM. “The relationship between IBM and LG Electronics will permit LG to explore new types of problems associated with emerging technologies and will help strengthen the quantum capabilities in Korea.”

      Hello.
       
      Some tutorials explain how to do it. 
      We first need to root the TV with scripts such as RootMyTV, and then install dts_restore. 
      Both tools are free and available at github.  
      I'm not writing the links because I don't know if it's allowed in this forum and because I take no responsibility. 
       
      My question is:
      Has anybody tried this process? Does it work? 
      The documentation says if you have any problem you can just factory reset the TV, but I don't dare to do it.

      I don't believe this is currently an option so forgive me if I'm wrong. But it we oukd be great to have an option to switch between bright room and dark room modes at a user specified time. My room is dark at night but fairly bright during the day. So, I'd love to have the option to switch modes at a defined time, much like a blue light filter on a phone. I want bright mode from 7am to 8pm and dark from 8pm to 7am, etc. 
      Aside from that I'd like to be able to turn the remote mouse off completely if desired.
