There was typo in the subject line - it did mean to say "VFD"

Anywaym does anyone know what does these mean?



if I use /LCDd -f -r 5 -s 0/, I get screen full of these:

Server running in foreground
Listening for queries on
driver_load(name="hd44780", filename="/usr/lib64/lcdproc/")
HD44780: using ConnectionType: mplay
HD44780: Matrix key 3 0: "Enter"
HD44780: Matrix key 3 1: "Up"
HD44780: Matrix key 3 2: "Down"
HD44780: Matrix key 3 3: "Escape"
hd44780: Using hd44780_default charmap
HD44780: lis2: Using device: /dev/ttyUSB0
HD44780: lis2: using speed: 57600
Key "Escape" is now reserved exclusively by client [-1]
Key "Enter" is now reserved shared by client [-1]
Key "Up" is now reserved shared by client [-1]
Key "Down" is now reserved shared by client [-1]
screenlist_switch: switched to screen [_server_screen]

Am I making any sense here at all?
