I've read other similar posts, and they don't look promising, but has anybody come up with a way to launch apps with a custom keystroke on pkb?

I have External Keyboard Helper, which does allow app launching with pkb hotkeys, but so far, it's not playing nice with Gemini Keyboard App.

I'm using Nova Launcher Prime--that doesn't seem to have the needed options.

Thanks. Installed it, but couldn't see how to keystroke an application to open. Are you doing that with your apps?

You'll have to configure a flow that waits for keypresses and then launches an activity based on the keypresses.
You can import my current flow if you'd like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fhu0hjq59m6fxgu/D...ctions.flo?dl=0

I have it setup to listen for ctrl-alt-t to open termux. ctrl-alt-d to open digical. ctrl-alt-c to open the camera. fn-s to open up the applications menu in ASAP launcher.

Eeems, thank you for posting that file. I downloaded it and I'm hoping to figure out Automate. Like Tasker, it might be a bit above my paygrade smile.gif

I figured out what's going on b/w External Keyboard Helper and Gemini Keyboard. EKBH does successfully launch hotkey-ed apps, even using the Gemini Alt key, but for some reason, you have to choose between Gemini or EKBH in "virtual keyboard" and if Gemini keyboard is unticked in virtual but ticked in physical, you lose function button and the keyboard defaults to UK layout.

This happens even when you tick both keyboards (which is possible) in virtual keyboard. I don't know why the programs are even dealing with virtual keyboard, considering it's a pkb issue.

FWIW, EKBH does work to launch apps, and if someone can't get that to work, post here, and I'll help with that. But getting the two programs to work together is still a mystery, though I see from another post( https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...amp;hl=external ) that jornada720 got ekbh to work with character remapping. But he had to use Android ASOP keyboard...

Perhaps jornada720 will see this post and weigh in w/ his experience.
