Joy2key / Antimicro
« on: September 08, 2021, 01:57:39 PM »
these two programs allows to assign joystick buttons to key
one with qt interface (python etc), other is command line

https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro/

well, if you can build it for older versions like 7,8 and others it would be nice
because of old cpu , it's always a trial to set up a new system

joy2key is very simple to build yourself. Why not try? Especially if you need it for an old TC version.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

because it is easy for you, but for me it needs to read again how to build environment, test it, setup and explore.
and for a newer version it needs new setup again and also as i remember there are some rules on how to post it as tcz
so if someone else will need that - they will have to make it again.

If you’d like to compile it yourself on an older version of tinycore, the build notes are here:

repo.tinycorelinux.net/12.x/x86/tcz/src/joy2key

thanks for fast render, i've reinstalled system, thought some terrible bugs was fixed, so it's a good experience prob
the problem with this extension it searches for libx11, but it needs really libX11, so libx11 cannot be found
well it's about deps, not sure on how to change it from client side.

i downloaded tcz directly from repo and changed libX11 in deps - it is installed and working.
at least on the stage of finding device. the default in program is /dev/js0 , but tc has it in /dev/input/js0
so the correct strinf joy2key -dev /dev/input/js0 -rcfile ~/.somerc
got to find how to setup that thing correctly.
well the reason - just want to have some rest for hands and read a lot with few buttons.
this old cpu has passive cooler, so it's much more silent than some 6 core.
thanks.

Hi oeai
... the problem with this extension it searches for libx11, but it needs really libX11, so libx11 cannot be found ...
The dependency file has been fixed.
