samsung keyboard

Got this one. Smallest keyboard I could find in 'Public'. It has 'Lang' key, but it seems not working anywhere outside of samsung keyboard driver in android devices.

Anyway, it feels rather nice for that size, and I plan to use is together with laptop and Wacom Cintiq for outdoor drawing.

xev shows most of the keys but few. E.g. 'voice', 'menu down', 'hide keyboard' neither works on linux nor sends any scancodes. Funny.

And there is no alt key too. So, again, vim is superiror over emacs. Yet another input device vim is supports and emacs is not.


my wacom script


#monitors setup
xrandr --output VGA1 --auto
xrandr --output VGA1 --right-of LVDS1

#wacom input setup
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Cintiq 13HD Pad pad" MapToOutput VGA1
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Cintiq 13HD eraser" MapToOutput VGA1
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Cintiq 13HD stylus" MapToOutput VGA1

#calibration data
xsetwacom --set "Wacom Cintiq 13HD stylus" "Area" "512 300 59300 33500"

"xvkbd  -text z"
       m:0x0 + b:9
"xvkbd  -text e"
       m:0x0 + b:8
"xvkbd  -text f"
       m:0x0 + b:11
"xvkbd  -text d"
       m:0x0 + b:13
"xvkbd  -text a"
       m:0x0 + b:12
"xvkbd  -text s"
       m:0x0 + b:10

up/down - change brush size, left-right change 'force' level, undo button at the bottom and switch between 'erase'/'draw' modes. Two upper buttons and middle 'ok' button are not used because they maps on Mouse1/2/3 buttons and conflicts with pen (still in research).
