Change key mapping for logitech usb/wireless presenter
I have a logitech wireless remote (model R-RB5 and described at: Amazon.com: Logitech 2.4 GHz Cordless Presenter: Electronics) I want to use when giving lectures using pdfs and acroread but I need to remap the buttons in order to do so elegantly. I have no idea how to do this.
I do have some information that I suspect will be relavent:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000and
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c515 Logitech, Inc.
$ dmesg |grep Logitechgives:
input: Logitech USB wireless Mouse & Presenter as /class/input/input4Can anyone point me to some resources or explain to me what I need to do and how to go about doing it?
input,hiddev96: USB HID v1.11 Keyboard [Logitech USB wireless Mouse & Presenter] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-1
input: Logitech USB wireless Mouse & Presenter as /class/input/input5

Thanks for your time in this matter.

Hi did you ever get anywhere with this? I'm looking into getting a remote as well and I'd like to remap the buttons.
I've got some thoughts on remapping the buttons. Does dmesg give any output when you push them? Depending on how the kernel interprets the events, dmesg may show them as unmapped keys. You can also use 'xev' to show key signals, if they are mapped to keycodes by the system. You can then use 'xmodmap' to map the keycodes to X key signals The following maps my media keys to control Amarok, Kaffeine, and volume:
keycode 162 = XF86AudioPlay keycode 164 = XF86AudioStop keycode 144 = XF86AudioPrev keycode 153 = XF86AudioNext keycode 160 = XF86Launch0 keycode 176 = XF86Launch1 keycode 174 = XF86Launch2 keycode 227 = XF86Launch3 keycode 122 = XF86Launch4
If the buttons are initially unmapped, but show up in dmesg as some kind of event, you can put the following in your '/etc/conf.d/local.start':
setkeycodes e008 136 setkeycodes e00e 143
Let me know if this helps or if you found another way of mapping your remote's buttons, or if this is just too much info.HP Pavilion dv6000t

The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?
