Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Hi all, hope this is the right forum/thread for this question: Just rediscovered an Omnikey Ultra-TP I had bought years ago and never used, in pristine condition (for now, I understand the switches on this model tend to deteriorate). This one has: * Windows keys. * A LED in the Up-Arrow key. The lab...

Re: Compiling Soarer's converter utilities

Well, the reason I needed to recompile, is that the pre-built ones don't run on Linux 64 bit, only on 32-bit, even after installing 32-bit compatibility libraries from the Linux distribution. However, running Make from the first-level folder in the tools (under the "source" folder) did compile them ...

Compiling Soarer's converter utilities

Hello again, I'm trying to complile the Soarer's utilities for linux. I have extracted Soarer_sctools_v1.10_source.zip to a new, clean folder. In a linux terminal, I've issued "make" and the name of the Makefile in the Linux subfolder. No errors, but I'm not sure where to find the executables, or ev...

I think, that's because you're not sending WIN + L to Windows, but WIN + SHIFT (because you're pressing it) + L. I can't test it at the moment, but I would program it like this: macro F12 LSHIFT PUSH_META CLEAR_META LSHIFT SET_META LGUI PRESS L POP_ALL_META endmacro edited: I forgot the WIN key ......

P.S. Do we "mark thread closed" in this forum, and if so, how do I? Thanks.

Ended up solving the problem using ifselect: IFSELECT 1 REMAPBLOCK RALT RGUI LALT LGUI ENDBLOCK IFSELECT ANY REMAPBLOCK INSERT SELECT_1 ENDBLOCK This way, I can press AND RELEASE insert, then left-Alt becomes left-Win, right-Alt is right-Win. Advantage: I'm only pressing one of them + whatever other...

Thanks for the suggestion, JBert. I tested this. It produced no visible results that I could tell.

Truly puzzling behavior in Soarer's Converter

Okay, abandoning my previous thread, because nothing is going to make sense until I get feedback on this question, which should be straightforward and simple (admins, please remove thread at https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20493 if you can, and thank you). Current headache: macroblock ma...

I suppose I could get by with a conditional remapblock. I know remapblock within a macro is not allowed. If I can map lgui to an F key only if the F key is shifted, or Alt-ed, that would work for me.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Okay, power-cycled, back to normal. Here's my current code: macroblock macro F6 MAKE LGUI onbreak norestoremeta BREAK LGUI endmacro macro F6 alt PRESS F6 endblock The logic: The keyboard is set up (this is internal to the keyboard, nothing to do with SC) so that the row of SF keys, default to ALT+F1...

Well, now I've done it. In my enthusiasm experimenting with macros, I've coded a MAKE (some meta key, probably ctrl) without a break. So obviously, on a win7 machine, every time I hit the "L" in any application like a text editor, my screen locks out. I've managed to edit some .sc files with valid m...

Soarer - Not clear on how "meta" directives work

Hello all, I've gotten great help here so far, many thanks to all! Environment: Northgate Omnikey Ultra (with additional "SF" keys across the top) Soarer 1.0. firmware/tools The additional "SF1 - SF12" keys, by default, function as Shift+F1 - Shift+F12. I was able to remap them so they send Alt+F1 -...

Many thanks, Muirium, I see the advantage in that, rather than nuking/repaving. This will keep me busy for a bit.

Thanks, that's definitely helpful, I'll start with this. As far as trial/error, how do I undo the programming? Upload an empty .sc file?

Help reassigning keys with Soarer

Hello all, I'm a former programmer, but confess I have had very little exposure to programming hardware such as keyboards. Apologies in advance for my dorkiness and incorrect terminology. I have an Omnikey Ultra (with the extra "OMNI" key on the navigation pad). What I'm trying to accomplish: This k...
