I would like to send mobile (cell) phone like
keyboard entries through my remote to the Google search box in Firefox. In
Windows I found a tool to do that called FirefoxIntegrator, but despite
extensive search I have not found anything similar available in
So I decided to build my own, using the method
outlined in this list back in July by Christoph Bartelmus, i.e. there is no
timeout function. Instead each keystroke has to be confirmed to move on to
the next. Using the echo command with irexec does not seem to work with
Firefox, but instead I am using irxevent and a command "Key x CurrentWindow"
where "x" is the keystroke.
Though crude without the timeout, this works fine,
but I have not found how to send the characters \ (backslash) and @ (at).
Am using an 105 type international keyboard and Swedish keyboard layout,
and the keystrokes should thus be AltGr-plus and AltGr-2. So what to use
for AltGr?? Tried Alt-R and many others, but no luck. Then realized
that the Swedish keyboard was not used but rather the American (?) and the
command should then be "backslash" and "Shift-L-apostrophe" - No luck here
Can anyone help me?
It would of course be even nicer to find a ready
Linux script to do this.
