Re: Easy shift / ctrl / AltGr ... hack on xf86-input-evdev

Hi. "Cancellation by Long Press" is broken in some environments. Before an official release, I posted a fix patch in the Arch BBS.

Re: Easy shift / ctrl / AltGr ... hack on xf86-input-evdev

For a Wayland replacement of my hack, you may find this post in the Archlinux BBS to be useful. The upstream development of the evdev input driver seems to have almost stopped. (Only 3 commits in 2017.) It does not mean it's unusable. Keyboard is a mature device, so I think my hack remains to work f...

ahm-2.10.3 released.

Hi. Ahm-2.10.3 is released now. It's simply a merge of upstream-2.10.3, and ahm itself hasn't changed. Please see the first post of the thread for the installation info.

Ubuntu PPA for 2.10.2 is already provided by Yuri Khan. (Thanks.) 2.10.3 has only one change, a bug fix, since 2.10.2.

ahm-2.8.0 is released.

Hi. I release at-home-modifier- 2.8.0 . It merges the upstream 2.8.0, but has no changes in ahm itself since the last release, ahm-2.7.3. Those with new devices may want to use it. Don't worry, the dependency is the same as upstream-2.7.0, wheezy's version. * Upstream news for 2.8.0 Sources: * The f...

Re: Easy shift / ctrl / AltGr ... hack on xf86-input-evdev

There's another alternative, xcape by Albin Olsson. It replaces keydouble and space2ctrl.

It's not in Debian/Ubuntu. See the homepage for how to compile.

Re: Easy shift / ctrl / AltGr ... hack on xf86-input-evdev

Hi. At-home-modifier-2.7.3 is released. It merges the upstream 2.7.3, but has no changes in ahm itself since the last release, 2.7.1.

Sources:
* The full source tarball
* The patch against Xorg's original 2.7.3

I don't write Debian support for 2.7.3. Please share yours.

Binary packages "clean build" guarantee is lacking

Hi. Most, if not all, linux distros don't seem to guarantee that binary packages are built from the corresponding source packages. I.e., there's the possibility that "bad" developers of distros[1] put binary packages built from their own source, not from the published source package. Since...

Re: Could US cyberspies have moles inside Microsoft?

It'd be my great surprise if Microsoft and Debian were not polluted by US, PRC, Russia, or Israel. Are there any reason it's not the case?

An implementation in C, "keydouble" is developed by "baskerville" aka "bloom" in the ArchLinux forum. See the web site hosted at github. You may find the news at the Arch forum thread.

Re: Easy shift / ctrl / AltGr ... hack on xf86-input-evdev

I've found an alternative, Space2Ctrl , by Victor Moreira. * s2c works in the user space, while ahm (=at-home-modifier) is the fork of an X input driver. * s2c uses "X Record Extension" to detect events. I haven't given a try yet, but it probably stands between the X server and clients (or...
