@chidgey thanks! I like making little progress posts, keeps me enthused while knocking out the longer articles that take ages. 😀
@hurt138 oh the final setup will be much neater, and yes fixed down on some back panel I haven't made yet. It's just a taped-on breadboard right now so I can do the software side and figure out how many buttons is the right number.
I may only do one, it's all that's needed, but I can think of plenty of uses for extras if there are sensible places to put them.
@hurt138 that's exactly what they're hooked to, with a really lightweight daemon that translates button pushes to keystrokes. Works perfectly for my needs here.
@hurt138 it's called pikeyd, I'm lazing about in bed right now, or I'd link it. 😁
Response time isn't a factor for me here so I haven't really tested that. Simplicity of configuration was my priority.
