decent luck so far, the remote does let me move the cursor around and click.
I'm a complete linux noob, but I've managed a few things. created a custom .xmodmap file to get some of the stuff working(after googling vi commands, holy shit somebody get me notepad.exe). I'm not exactly sure how the fiire remote is supposed to work, so I have no idea when I don't have something mapped or there is no mapping. For example, there is no volume up and down as far as I can tell, just a 'volume' button and then you move the remote\cursor accordingly. That works well enough, along with the stop, chapter up and chapter down buttons. Fast forward and reverse suck pretty hard though.
reverse gots to << 2x and brings up the cursor and blue meter at the bottom, but I can't get it to do anything, pressing reverse again\moving the cursor do nothing, same thing with fast forward >> 2x I can't seem to change the rate. The play button also doesn't work, the only way i can stop ff or rewinding is by using the chapter buttons. Pause doesn't work either.
I figured out how to use xev to get the codes, but now I have to figure out what exactly I am supposed to map them to
edit: seems one of the function keys, f7 i think, is what I really want mapped for the gyro option to fast forward or rewind, hopefully i can just map both of those to f7. Not sure what to map the play button to though.
