It's not on the Orbiter's page, because it's not an Orbiter.
The Device Template # is 1954.. it's the one called Wii Remote. Which you can find if you go to advanced > configuration > device templates, and type in Wii in the device template drop down.
As you can see, a complete device template, with a package to install when detected. If you drill down into it, you'll see the package is called lmce-wiimote-support ...
If you dig into that package, you'll notice there is a postinst script that gets run as part of the package installation that does all the work.
There is EVEN a part in the device template to select whether you want to use the IR or Accelerometer as your pointing device.
As I said. Been there. Done the work, something broke, and it would be nice if those interested could track down the issue and fix it.
Sorry to bring up an old thread. I've tried using Device Template #1954 for adding a Wii-mote, however when I sync the Wii-mote I just get the option to ignore the MAC or select a phone associated with it. I'm slowly searching through to see how you have implemented it, from what I can tell I have all the packages.
My question: Would you please clarify your statement "something broke"? Does this mean it is no longer working as expected, still needs work etc? I've searched through all your posts for the last 12 months and read the post you made regarding your thoughts on setting this up. However I haven't found anything more about it. The wiki on the Wii-mote is old and doesn't mention using the device template. I'm not asking anyone to fix it I'm requesting for information and the state of play on it so I can be more useful to the project.
Happy to skype if it's easier to talk than type.
