Re: Keyboard testing software?

On Linux, I just use 'xev' or 'xev -event keyboard', or 'xev -event keyboard -event mouse' as needed :)

Re: Stuff you just bought

I bought a 3d printer ("Ender 3X", 200$ shipping included, from a warehouse in Europe no less!). Since then, and because I have the keyboards I want (Topre etc.), I rarely visit here :( 3d printing finally became cheap and good, and opens nearly-infinite possibilities (imagine making your own cases,...

Nice keyboard - good luck with the trade, it certainly looks like an attractive offer for anyone in search for a more tactile Topre ! :)

No problem, just put them here! I'm not sure I'm still interested in the trade, unfortunately (meanwhile I got all the Topre I wanted).

Wow, the reply I sent you in November 2018 appears as "Yesterday", must be a forum bug.

If it (hopefully) supports Hasu's alternative controller made for the non-silent FC660C model - I didn't check yet - then I guess I could always attach a speaker and configure its QMK firmware to make some noise ...

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

I *think* I remember some editor that showed an accent like ` or ' after typing such a dead key, although it moved the cursor afterwards (of course after the next letter typed it would do the right thing). It could have been even Notepad or Wordpad, I rarely use Windows nowadays.

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Heh, well I rather meant something like this: when you type a dead key, the editor (using low-level keyboard scanning or something similar) shows the accent on current cursor position, maybe flashing it, or in a different color, and then the cursor is kept as is, not moved; so the user can then type...

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Type writers did have dead keys. In Spanish, for example, the acute accent key was a key that produced the accent but did not move the carriage, then, after it any key typed was let to be printed under the accent. That was a dead key by definition. Heh, editors *could* do that too ... (I mean, it w...

@Findecanor, I'm pretty sure when I plug in a keyboard with QMK firmware,it always appears as multiple devices (in Linux, 'dmesg' shows multiple input event sources IIRC), even if I don't enable fancy stuff in QMK; AFAIK, the 6-nkro issue pointed out by @hansichen is still relevant and QMK still use...

It's possible this was an alphanumeric add-on to a cash register machine that had those numbers in a numpad already, looking at e.g.:

Also most kbdfans.cn 60% keyboard PCBs for example are completely programmable and usually improved (*) clones of GH60 AFAIK.

(*) Improved not necessarily as in "better materials" or soldering, but supporting more stuff (RGB lights, or custom layouts)
