If you can make the Lanner hardware available to me, I can come up with proper driver code for it. This thread is labeled 0.5.4, but I think the lcdproc-dev package is actually on the current production release 0.5.5 (New development is done against 0.5dev). We probably have enough of the base functionality to take it from here and get it working completely. I would hope we could get the big clock, vbars, hbars, maybe even special characters and menus. If there are enough differences with an existing driver (HD or sdeclcd), then I can submit a patch upstream so this would become supported going forward. I would make the driver against 0.5dev, and backport it to 0.5.5. I could test Linux and FreeBSD, and compile with OpenBSD and NetBSD to be sure. Let me know.
