howto: copy & paste (wlan settings)

his HOWTO explains howto copy and paste a hellishly long random WLAN WPA key into your Jolla settings.

I have a text file with my WLAN WPA key on the Jolla device (and also on my laptop). Maybe I missed something but I cannot find a way to copy and paste my rediculously long WPA2 key into the WLAN settings. Did I mention I refuse to manually type this kind of stuff?

Then I found this neat/clever app called "haveclip". It basically lets you copy and paste between multiple devices. Naturally these devices need network access. To solve the chicken and egg problem I have a "home-guest" WLAN SSID with a truly simple key which can be entered manually. This enables network access and thus enables copying and pasting complicated stuff between devices.

So I downloaded "haveclip" from sourceforge using the link supplied on http://www.havefun.cz/projects/haveclip/ Then I compiled and installed "haveclip" on my Linux laptop and installed the Jolla counterpart from the Jolla store (or is it called harbour?)

Next I entered the proper IP addresses in the respective pool specifying the same port and it worked like a charm! Now I have the rediculousy long ramdom key in the WLAN setting for my real (full access) "home" SSID.

I am sure that with some creativity other clever uses can be found ;) Hope you found this usefull

Cheers, Jan
