Need help to install github repo in debian

I am trying to install a GitHub repo through the command line but I am not that experienced with Debian, so if someone could try and point me in the right direction I would be very appreciative

if it helps this is the repo: https://github.com/mmoller2k/pikeyd

Thanks! :slight_smile:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/mmoller2k/pikeyd.git

Oh ok awesome, so now that I’ve installed it, how do I run it?

I guess you will have to build (compile) it and install the result. If you don’t know how to do that and the git author hasn’t provided instructions I can’t really help.

We’re getting way off-topic for an OSMC forum.

I am trying to control OSMC with buttons connected to the GPIO, but I’m not entirely sure how to go about that, would someone help me out?

I merged this new post you started into the previous thread as they were both related and in both cases out of scope for this forum. There is much better places on the interwebs to discuss such a project such as the thread where that pikeyd software originated from…
