First Official Version 0.11.0


Maemo is a Debian based operating system for Nokia internet tablets and phones. Port is currently based on a SDL (no opengl) with changes adding for the hardware keys on the tablets. First version was ported by Tomas Junnonen. Since 0.8.2 until 1.2.1 the port is maintained by fanoush. 0.11.0 was first official version. Since version 1.4.0, the port is maintained by tsoliman and has been part of the main source code tree. There are no official releases between 1.2.1 and 1.4.0 due to the port being unmaintained.


From the downloads page, download the maemo package. This is a *.deb file. Save it to the tablet. From the Application Manager, choose the "Application"->"Install From File" menu option and select the *.deb you downloaded.


All SDL backend keybindings (see README) should work unless specifically changed for Maemo. Both builtin (if available) and attached bluetooth or usb keyboard should work. Touch screen tap generates left click when clicking is enabled. Press the "switch clicking mode" key to toggle clicking on and off. When clicking is off, touch screen tap only generates mouse movement.

    • package "corrupt" appears from GUI installer reported

    • Fix keyboard input not working at all
    • Add GMM binding Ctrl+Shift+m - only in 1.4.1 and above.
    • Add keybindings to Template:MaemoControls when 1.4.1 release is imminent.
  • Add keymapper support

(No plans to support N770 for future releases because of older SDK requirements - use 1.2.1)

Known issues

  • Power management - ScummVM is not paused when running in background or display is blanked. Bringing up menu (menu key) may reduce CPU usage significantly but exiting scummvm is recommended when not in use.
  • N900 - reported by users says "package is corrupt" when installing from the app manager. dpkg -i works. UPDATE: Need to verify this is still the case for packages offered on Packages on are built by the buildbot and don't have this issue.
