Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Finally had some time to build my quefrency 65% keyboard, with Zilent switches, Panda linears (POM) for modifiers and Devlin keycaps:

Re: Asus Eee Note EA800 (e-book reader/drawing tablet)

Thanks for the quick answer! I'll search a bit more about the possibility of updating its Linux innards (I see Asus has the free parts on its support page: https://www.asus.com/supportonly/EA-800 ... _Download/).

Re: Asus Eee Note EA800 (e-book reader/drawing tablet)

Assuming this is still for sale, I have a couple of questions (sorry if already answered): - battery usage (how much can you work on it between recharges) - can one upgrade, or replace the Linux distribution that the device runs? I managed to install Linux on a newish cheap Chinese tablet (touchscre...

Re: Genius idea of the day

I'm afraid all this USB power/data direction handling stuff is way over my head, unfortunately :/ Some new tablets have larger batteries, I think the simplest would be to just rely on that tablet's internal battery and let the keyboard draw from it too; and in the end, you have to charge just one ba...

Re: Genius idea of the day

On https://thingiverse.com there are a lot of designs for iPad/tablets stands - one adapted to have a base handle gripping on the keyboard to keep the iPad at the right viewing angle (and maybe pushed further back) could do the trick - but you need to design it and print it (there are 3d-printing on...

Indeed, but this wouldn't be a big problem - that's the joy of 3d printing, you design something just for you :) And the battery idea is great (especially for older tablets), if either the tablet allows charging and keyboard detection at the same time; otherwise an extra switch (charge/OTG) could do...

Re: keyboard layout PT

Hi (and welcome!), just to make sure, you know that you can choose PT layout input in your operating system, it's not keyboard dependent: i.e. there will be a mismatch between some of the keycap legends and what you actually type when you press them. If that's ok for you, you can buy any ANSI (US) o...

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,...

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

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...
