Hi Greg,

Here's the thread that has the j variant.
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=27&t=3158

Here's the ipkg

Attached is the IRK.conf.
Thanks for your help! biggrin.gif

btw, it also has a different lircd.conf file. Any difference?

Using the resources I have available I can find no problem with the IRK.conf included with the irk-belkin ipk in the 3.5.3 feed. It is identical to the one in the 3.5.2 feed used successfully by MrSquishy with his belkin keyboard. If you are positive that you have the settings correct in the input applet... then I can only assume that lirc is needed for this to work. I have checked the irk-0.11.1 from the 3.5.2 feed and it also depends on lirc.

You now have the option to install lirc and it's modules?

FWIW, CoreDump has noted in another thread that the lirc-modules postinst has been fixed in OE for future releases. smile.gif

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your help.

I guess it was at least worth the shot for me. What I did find is that libirk.so.1.0.0 is different for the j variant and the standard one you made for me. The IRK.conf is also differing.

Point of interest is that in Pocketop mode, Z actually shows keys being typed, just mismapped to some gibberish. This seem to imply that the IRK module is able to access the IRDA port and pick up ir signals from the keyboard, despite mapping it incorrectly.

However, in Belkin mode, it is dead silent. sad.gif

Looking through IRK.conf leads me to think that it is just for mapping the Shift, Function, Punctuation keys etc ... I cannot seem to find the place where standard/normal key codes are mapped to characters, ie a hardware key code for "a" may be say 25 for a Pocketop but a 76 for a Belkin, and IRK would have to map the keycode 25 to a ASCII 65 for a pocketop but a keycode of 76 to a ASCII 65 for a Belkin.

Anyone knows if

1. this keycode schema exists for IRK and
2. if it exists, is it hardcoded or stored in some configuration file?

For now, I would rather lay off the lirc and its modules as I've went through at least 10 reflashing and several reinstalls but no success. sad.gif

If craig (I think its craig) who wrote IRK can shed some light here ... it would be great! biggrin.gif

My turn now. I can't get irk to give me a kangaroo no matter what I try. I have tried everything in this thread plus anything that seemed vaguely relevant in the other 13 pages of hits you get from searching for IRK.

It's a 6000l with opie openzaurus 3.5.3. I have tried irk-zaurus_0.11.0_arm.ipk and irk-zaurus_0.10.0_arm.ipk, these two install fine without any error messages that I can see. I have also tried all the irk_X.X.X_ packages that I can find. They seem to have bits missing and don't install.

I have tried it with and without lirc from the 3.5.2 feed as it isn't in the 3.5.3 feed.

I have tried it all ways up from the command line over SSH, from the console having exited opie and from the package manager, with and without the feeds enabled (it is suggested to disable them in this thread during the install process).

I have tried it with and without the irda utils and opie irda applet installed

After install I have IRK.conf in ~Settings but nowhere else. I have tried every combination of copying or linking from and to IRK.conf in /etc, /etc/skel and ~Settings in combination with all of the above, a fairly complex sequence of installs and removes I can tell you smile.gif.

I have now run out of combinations to try and am getting despondent. Being able to replace my laptop was the main reason for getting the 6000 as I had completely failed in the same way to get irk to work on my Ipaq.

Anyone care to enlighten me?
Are there any other alternatives to irk for the pockettop keyboard?
