Hi,
I can't use keytouch with openSUSE 11.2 64Bit and the packman repository with keytouch 2.4.1-0.pm.6.1
The keytouch-init script is running but no special key is working.
With openSUSE 11.1 all was working fine.

Hope you can help!
Benjamin

    I am using OS11.2 x64 and I managed to get keytouch to work (at least partially). Here's what I did:

    *Keyboard*
    Changing xorg keyboard does not work by default. For it to work the following section needs to be added to xorg.conf:

    Section "ServerFlags"
    # Uncomment the following option to reenable
    # kbd/mouse driver sections.
    # Otherwise evdev driver is used.
    Option "AutoAddDevices" "off"
    EndSection

    Set keyboard to standard:

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard[0]"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "Protocol" "Standard"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option "XkbVariant" "alt-intl"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
    Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
    EndSection

    and add:

    InputDevice "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"

    to section "ServerLayout".

    Make sure that:

    Configure Desktop > Regional & Language > Keyboard Layout is set to "Disable Keyboard Layouts".

    *KeyTouch*
    Get keytouch from Packman

    Go to:
    Administrator Settings > System > System Services
    and set keytouch-init to "Yes"

    Configure Keytouch. Install keytouch-editor from Packman if necessary.

    Right now the amixer plugin is not working. Mute and volume controls do not work. There is a separate bug report here already for it.
