The keytouch-editor v3.1.2 does not include the keycode in the keyboard file when the keycode is not in the predefined list of keycodes in the "keycode" drop-down box. The tech manual says that the keycodes in the keyboard file are the kernel keycodes. Since keytouch-editor has these, why not include them in the keyboard file? Especially since the keyboard file is not valid until each key has a keycode.

BTW, I am trying to use keytouch with a USB ATI Remote Wonder. It translates the buttons on the remote to standard key input events.

    It is not very clear to me what you mean. Please describe your steps in creating a keyboard file and then tell me wat doesn't work well.

    I am doing:
    - run keytouch-editor
    - select a device (my USB ATI Remote Wonder which acts like a keyboard)
    - press "new" button
    - press a key on the remote
    - Name the key and click ok.
    - The keycode field in the "key settings" frame is empty.
    - Save the keyboard file.
    - There is no keycode for the key I created in the keyboard file.

    The keycode for the key I pressed on the remote does not correspond to any of the keys listed in keytouch-editor-3.1.2/src/keycodes.c. The key does have a keycode, but it is not included in keyboard file.

    This falls under the USB problem.
