Ok. So you have xmms running. And you installed my little screen blanker utility to turn of the screen. Now you can close the top and listen to your music. But... Now you want to pause/play/forward/reverse... The side buttons don't really work!
The roller knob does a fast forward & rewind 5 seconds. Nice, but not
very useful. With only 4 buttons (roller forward/back, ok, cancel), I wanted
to re-map these keys whenever I run xmms. No problem.
Make the following file:
keycode 131 = X
keycode 132 = C
keycode 133 = B
keycode 134 = Z
Create an xmms wrapper file:
Change the launcher to use the wrapper file.
Restart X (Is there a better way to tell matchbox to re-read?)
Now, when you run xmms, you can turn off the screen and
close it. Now they keys are mapped to:
OK = Play
Cancel = Pause
Dial Forward = Next song
Dial Backward = Prev song
Note: the xmms app must be "active" when you close the Z
This is the default after you launch it, but if you are messing
around with something else, be sure to click on xmms before
closing the lid.
