I ported CUPSD to Android but have some problem initializing cupsd by
manually typing cupsd & in terminal. Cupsd alawys exits with error. I
haven't tried to start cupsd by adding service in init,rc due to some
technical difficulty. So just not sure is it  wrong to start a daemon
manually? Can somebody explains the difference of initing service from
within init.rc and initing service manually. Thanks.

This is what I do now:
* In my widgetProvider
Intent intent = new Intent(context, LogDataActivity.class);
PendingIntent pintent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, intent,

RemoteViews views = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(),
views.setOnClickPendingIntent(, pintent);

* In my LogDataActivity class
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

                //Do some of my stuff

                Toast.makeText(LogDataActivity.this, "Success",


So what happens: I click the button, a plain black screen pops up
(Altough I did not specify a layout upon creating the activity), and
after my work is done the Toast shows up and the activity gets

show up. Is it possible not to show a screen upon creating the
