Dell CX071 remote (made by Gyration)
« on: September 13, 2010, 10:05:01 am »
Hi all,

Has anyone successfully used this remote in Linuxmce 0810?

Device template 1812 claims to support it, but the main bits (green button, vol/lights, ff/rew/chapter) don't work.

I tried debugging by removing the device, removing the USB ID from the device template (so the device wouldn't be regenerated), and then watching the orbiter logs for input events.

And the green button (for example) didn't generate any events.  Whereas other buttons that do currently work (like stop) do create events.

Thing is: I know the hardware works, because I recently had an 0710 installation where I did the old Xmodmap trick for the standard Gyration remote.  And it worked just fine.

Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong, or how I could further debug this?

If you open a terminal window and type 'xev' enter,  does the green button display an event in the terminal windo when pressed?
