View Full Discussion @AlexPeterkin Using the configurator I am unable to map the 105th key on my keyboard. This is the key right of the left shift, which on UK keyboards has the | and \ symbols. On my keyboard has the "more than" and "less than" symbols. Please could you see to it that someone adds support for that key to the configurator? Please please please, I have both an ErgoDox Infinity and an Infinity 60% on order. Living without my lessthan and morethan symbols would be painful.
You have to remember that the less than and more than symbols are a product of SHIFT+, and SHIFT+. which is considered a macro and is unsupported by the web configurator at the moment. If you assign a key to . and , you will get the functionality you are currently familiar with (having to hold shift and press , or . to get the symbols < or >)
If you have any more questions please post on our forums so we can respond faster.
This is wrong. You are assuming his OS is set to US qwerty, which it most likely isn’t.
The USB standard doesn't use US ANSI. It's described in the link below http://www.usb.org/developers/hidpage/Hut1_12v2.pdf. For example the key Ziggurat is referring to is "0x64 - Keyboard Non-US \ and |"
I suggest that the whole USB spec is exposed to the configurator, so that any keyboard configuration can be supported. It would be even nicer if it did some conversion to the OS layout, so we don't have to manually figure out which key is which.
Another thing I would like to see are combinations, which could be usable for special characters. For example a Swedish layout has a lot of alt-gr combinations on the number row. Those could be put on a layer in a more accessible location, if we were able to send alt-gr + the actual key. Of course the same thing applies to normal shifted symbols on the number row as well.
The alternative is of course to make your own OS layout, but that's not too nice when moving to different locations. A third alternative would be to use the KLL language.
Thanks, I did not know that. It seems that there is an unicode page, if I understand correctly that means that I can set up my ErgoDox to send glyphs like used with the APL keyboard directly, without any configuration per computer?
EDIT: As I was looking through it, there is a magic carpet simulation device :D
Combinations (and sequences) are supported in the compile-your-own firmware. All you have to do is create your layouts in KLL (not that hard) and compile according to the instructions in the controller documentation (not hard if you're on a UNIX based OS and know basic command line stuff).
what if I'm on windows but know the linux terminal pretty well? Is it just easier from *nix? I can spin up a VM or something if it's just easier from that OS.
Yes, you could use a VM, and an ArchLinux image is provided in the documentation at github.com/kiibohd/controller for exactly that purpose.
You could also use Cygwin. Instructions for setting up Cygwin are also provided in the documentation mentioned above.
FYI, issue opened and was closed with a resolution shortly after.
