Xine DVD Keyboard Navigation


Does anyone know how I go about setting up Xine to accept keyboard navigation of DVD menus? At the moment left, right, up, down arrows alter the speed at which playback is handled. How do I configure it so I can navigate DVD menus without a mouse?

thanks,
jpbarto

Easy go into Keymap Editor (Alt+k). Then change it there. If want use the CTL, ALT, SHIFT, or MOD keys, check the boxes at the bottom of Keymap Editor window.

Oops.. nevermind. Manpage covers this actually quite well... now I just have to translate all this into LIRC settings.

Please tell me how you do it. Configuring xine works OK, but I never understood how to control it with LIRC! So far, I've only managed to make the standard IR launcher to use xine-remote. Which is heavier than needed.

Well using Xine's default lircrc file didn't seem to work too well for me. However I'm using Xine in combination with MythTV and so I had a pre-existing .lircrc file which sent events via 'irxevent'. SOOooo.... I adjusted the Xine keymap to accept the inputs already set up (Remote OK btn == Enter) etc. I'm sorry I can't be more help about this but if all you're looking to control with the remote is Xine, I think the way I have it setup would probably create something of a middleman.

I would go with sending the LIRC commands right to Xine (specify Xine as the application in the .lircrc entries); however how to do that, or why it's not working, I'm afraid I don't know.

Thanks. I'll try again with "Xine".
