If you use Debian on your Neo, a dasher package is available. It
works, but the animations are unbearably slow. I don't know if there
are options compiled in that we don't need. There are surely some
optimizations that can be done...
Several of the command line options failed as well. I believe one of
the ones that doesn't work is the one that would make dasher usable as
a keyboard on the Neo. The default start mode opens dasher as a sort
of text editor. So, the characters you "type" go into a text field
instead of whatever app you want to type in... I think there is an
option that would make it act more like a regular keyboard, sending
