Whebn I added the tyan driver to LCDproc I found nobody with the hardware
so that I was not sure whether the driver works correctly.

If you are willing to help we can improve the driver together.

I have added debugging output to the tyan driver in CVS HEAD.
It will be in tonight's nightly tarball

Please try it running the LCDd daemon with report level 5, reporting set
stdout/stderr and the output redirected to a file:
LCDd -r 5 -s 0 -f 1 > LCDd.log 2>&1

With this configuration it should write a line of the form
tyan: get_key(): raw key code: 0x??
for every key pressed on LCD. For untreated keys it should log a line of the
tyan: Untreated key 0x??

Would you mind to test and send me the mappings
key pressed - raw key code

Maybe your LCD has a different mapping.

After this is done I'd like to improve the driver a bit more:
- vertical and horizontal bars
- big numbers

For all this I need a tester.
Are you willing to help ?
