  1. Bug#499917: ITP: esekeyd -- multimedia keyboard daemon for Linux

    Package: wnpp
    Severity: wishlist
    Owner: Krzysztof Burghardt

    * Package name : esekeyd
    Version : 1.2.3

    Description : multimedia keyboard daemon for Linux

    ESE Key Daemon is a multimedia keyboard daemon for Linux. With the 2.6 kernel
    series it can also handle remote controls, as they are presented as keyboards.
    No kernel patch is required. It is a userspace program that pools
    /dev/input/event? interfaces for incoming keyboard key presses.

    -- System Information:
    Debian Release: lenny/sid
    APT prefers unstable
    APT policy: (900, 'unstable'), (1, 'experimental')
    Architecture: i386 (i686)

    Is "ESE" some special keyboard?

    Unfortunately, it is just random keystroke to make program name a bit
    longer. :-)

    So this is "simply" Yet Another Way to handle multimedia keys? What
    makes it better than existing techniques?

    It probably simpler than anything else. It does not need anything else
    then Linux kernel to handle keys. It parses key codes internally and
    execute command defined in configuration file. It handles also remote
    control (those presented as keyboard event devices), so you can
    execute some commands with RC. It was also reported to work with...
    bar code scanner :-)

    Sounds like it does something similar as inputlirc (for which I'm both upstream
    and Debian maintainer), or does it do something else?

    Difference is that inputlirc forwards key codes to lirc clients, so
    you need irexec (from lirc package) to execute command on button
    press. My solution has ability to execute command without using lirc
    (command is defined in esekeyd.conf). On the other hand esekeyd cannot
    forward keys to lirc clients.
