Hi, i bought for 15 bucks a month ago, a cheap awesome amazon remote (Fire TV remote) for my RP2 with this bluetoooth dongle.

I’ved install bluetooth and then i create a “keymap.xml” file from this page
http://kodi.wiki/view/Alternative_keymaps_for_Fire_TV_remote (the first keymap).
Then i’ved try to select it from osmc but i couldn’t select it from the menu,
maybe i’ve done something wrong ?
What is the path location for the sd card (where i install OSMC)
i’m sorry for my poor english and thank you so much for your amazing OS, i were before on Openelec, but i switch like a month back to your OS for Raspbian and i’ve install Plex + Transmission.
For the location of the config files checking the wiki would have helped
Where is the .kodi directory ?
OSMC has the .kodi directory in the following location:
Why can’t I find the .kodi directory ?
In Linux, any directory or file that has a period at the beginning of the name, will be hidden from normal view.
Kodi also, will normally hide these files from view.
To enable viewing of these files from within Kodi, you need to enable:
Settings->Media->General->Show hidden files and directories
To list hidden files and directories via command lin…
The remote.xml files for the Fire TV Stick that you are linking to will not work on OSMC unfortunately - they are designed for use
on a Fire TV Stick running Android.
This because a Fire TV Stick remote on an Android device acts as though it is a keyboard device (generates keyboard scan codes) while on OSMC it acts as a remote control, thus the remote.xml needs to be modified.
Does the remote work at all for you ? The remote.xml only changes the mapping of the buttons to be a bit more useful but isn’t required for it to work.
You could try downloading the remote.xml that I rewrote for OSMC for the Fire TV Stick remote here:
Ok figured it out. I’ve had to rewrite it quite a bit due to it being detected as a remote instead of a keyboard, in particular as well as changing all the keyboard tags to remote tags I had to make these changes:
menu -> title
rewind -> reverse
fastforward -> forward
browser_home -> start
backspace -> back
browser_back -> back
play_pause -> play
I also deleted a few spurious duplicates. Here is a version of the FireTV profile 4 (the one I like) to work under OSMC:
