Apologies if this is out of scope, but I’m not sure where best to else ask for help.
I’ve used the OSMC remote successfully in Kodi on OSMC and LibreELEC. I’m now trying to get it working on RetroPie.
The remote is detected (it seems to behave as a keyboard), but some of the buttons behave incorrectly (eg, the Home button jumps to the top of the list, instead of going to the home screen) and others simply don’t work at all (eg, the “i” button).
The buttons that don’t work at all don’t appear to do anything as keyboard buttons either: RetroPie won’t accept them as valid inputs, and pressing them at a terminal doesn’t input anything. I’m guessing they must be mapped to something relatively esoteric, so as not to interfere with normal keyboard input.
My question is: how do I configure Kodi to work correctly with the OSMC remote?
I’ve tried Googling with no luck. I’ve tried the Keymap Editor addon (it doesn’t recognise those buttons either). Please could someone point me towards a solution?
The reason I don’t want to use OSMC is because I can’t make my controller (PS3 Sixaxis) work in Retrosmc, but it works fine in RetroPie. Given that I’ve had no problem with the OSMC remote on other distros, I figured it was probably easier to make that work on RetroPie than to make the PS3 controller work on OSMC.
Got eventlircd set up and it’s all working nicely now. Had to do a bit of a horrible hack to start eventlircd just before starting Kodi and kill it again after it exits, as I want the remote to function as a keyboard when Kodi isn’t running… but it works, so no complaints. Thank you for your help!
