Hello, I have a 16x1 LCD display that works with
HD44780 driver but not in 16x1 mode. The layout of the
LCD is:
00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47
so I can see all 16 characters only if I configure
lcd4linux to use 8x2 mode. Would it be possible to
convince lcd4linux that there is only one line with 16
characters?

    Funny, but yesterday I received a dsisplay of exactly this
    size. I'm missing a special socket which I'm going to buy
    now, so I could neither connect nor test it. Maybe it has
    ecactly the same problem as you (which would improve fixing
    speed a lot :-)

    Anyway, I will look into this.

    You are right, my 16x1 display showed exactly this
    behaviour. I fixed this in CVS. Could you please test?
    Please double-check if your HD44780.c has Version 1.42,
    otherwise you were bitten by the anonymouse CVS delay on
    SourceForge.

    Tanks for reporting! If you tell me your name, the fix will
    be credited to you.

    My name is Maciej Witkowiak < ytm at elysium dot pl >.
    Thanks for such fast reaction. I have tested the new code
    and it works great.
