Would it be helpful / constructive if I logged this task in the Issue Tracking System of record? Would it be helpful (when I return from abroad) if I were to find an old Raspbmc keyboard.xml file and post it to this thread?
Again, Sam has performed admirably to keep this ship afloat.
Volume Down / Mute key failure on Pi2 with keyboard Logitech K400 is still unsolved.
Its definitly a show stopper for me using OSMC.
Could OSMC team manage to add the fixes to general build as recommended in 04 /2015 by another thread?
Reasons for declaring it ShowStopper: 1) EndUser vs Experts
I am very sorry, but I am just an avarage end user loving its RaspberryPi 1+2.
But I am without linux knowledge. While my Raspi is in use as MediaCenter its vital functions are playing Video and Music to my Beamer and SoundStation controling all by Remote Keyboard and App (Logitech K400 and Android/iPhone App).
So Volume up/down are main vital functions… using my Pi as MediaCenter. 2) Complaint on Incident and Release Management
If an fix is available since 3 monhs - I would expect to get this implemented asap regarding impact and severety.
That means, is it really more important to release “Redesigned the OSMC skin to provide better colours” - instead of “Volume up/down” functions? Dont agree. 3) Customizing OSMC
I dont want to focus on customizing the OS.
I would need to concern about “Backup the System”, maybe using Test and Production Environment. Testing what happens when updating the OSMC… isn’t it?
But back to topic - I want to give it a try as recommended.
OSMC running on Raspi2 sending AV to Beamer, SoundStation while using
Keyboard Logitech K400 / iOS app / AndroidApp
Now, go forth and use your WinSCP to put the file into the mentioned directory. Or put it on one of your external drives or shares or whatever and copy it from there. The file will be eventually delivered, until then use the manual workaround.
Great. 1000 Thanks for great and very quick help. I didn’t want to invest more than one hour, but this makes fun, too.
Result: OSMC on Raspi2 while using Keyboard Logitech K400 is working fine now (also the Volume up/down keys)!
Tested both ways that brought Quick Workaround:
A) Used the Filemanager (Settings > File manager) and copy xml-file from USB device to /home/osmc/userdata/keymaps (thanks for that easiest idea @srmo)
(action requires Master User access to enter Root pathes)
Navigate to the power icon in OSMC
Press ESC on your keyboard
Login to your device (default is username: ocmc and pw: osmc)
