If you want help, you should start by posting your code as it is right now, and telling us what you don't understand about it. Or even a link or a quote of the part of the documentation you don't get. I'm pretty rusty with calculators and have no experience with the CE, but I'm sure others would answer your question as long as you ask the right way™. No question is stupid so don't be afraid, but remember that "I need help" is not enough for anyone to help you.

Yeah I agree with Streetwalrus about asking the right way. Maybe I am being impaired by my inabilities to detect people's intentions, but to me it seemed like you wanted us to write all code for you alvajoy123, which is frowned upon on tech support websites or sub-forums. People will only help someone else if the latter person shows any effort to learn. It's also impossible to help someone if we don't know the exact problem (eg after you write code and find bugs you somehow can't figure out).

^^ You were correct, but I don't think he consciously wanted that.

Here's my 2 cents:
Learn to code, write mostly-working code, then we'd gladly help revise it.

Also, I would like you to change the name of this project. It has absolutely nothing to do with Linux, and it's a trademark infringement, which has been discussed before. Why not come up with something original?

This are so names I came up with
.LinuxC
.LinuxCE
.TIkernel
.T Lin (Tlin)
I will post a poll

By the way I just noticed that there is different types of linux so I will have to make a boot screen where you can choose from 3

Types of linux os

Quote from: Streetwalrus on June 25, 2017, 09:30:36 amI'm sure you've already been told, but don't just say this, because it implies that you want us to hold your hand and do things for you. If you have a specific question, do ask it, but otherwise do refrain or people will dismiss you as someone who doesn't really want to learn (to be honest, it's already too late for you, but you can always make up for it).

Lots of people have made programs they called "Windows" for the calculators -- only about time for Linux to have its trademark infringed too :)

Considering 99% of ticalc.org content is called Windows, Linux, Dragon Ball or Pokémon, I don't see why this matters with this project in particular, but I think it should at least be renamed to something less clickbait or something such as Basiclinux or Linux 84+CE

Also, see this page:

https://lmi.linuxfoundation.org/programs/legal/trademark/attribution

Basically, you can't legally call this Linux.

If you do get caught, though, (which I doubt) CW could get caught in the cross fire.

* _iPhoenix_ mumbles something about legal stuff is stupid.



The best thing to do would be to completely come up with a new name.
I know this has been stated before, but here's an idea I thought up:
AlvajoyOS

My main concern is that this thread is called "Linux" when it's in fact something unrelated, which is confusing for everyone.

Perhaps the thread should be renamed then
