Hehe... So far, yes. It do something. Im damn sure lcdproc is a great idea.
The most thing i like is that the display-output is remote-controlable
via a client. That makes the usability complete endless...

Hmm... Exactly? Are there more types of the HD66712? Uhm! Ive no idea...
I bought this display from a website called and its
working completly with the lcd4linux project - but im interested to
control the display via clients, a feature that is maybe planned in the
future (for lcd4linux).

At the moment i try to discover the difference between the generic
hd44780 and hd66712 in the other display project (cause its working
there). It seems, so far, only a slight modification is need to make
it work. I read anywhere that the main difference between both is the
ram-layout. But digging through c-source could maybe take forever
for me, im just a hobby-programmer... (like we are all?).

What i found so far is a datasheet of that thing:

Dunno! Depends on my slangish. ;)

Thanks so for, picking up my "problem".
