joycon ex showed up! now to find a windows box to configure it
got my joycon ex, found an old install of windows XP , and configured away, saved the config, plugged the joycon ex into my linux laptop and IT WORKED!
With my steering wheel button presses the joycon spits out HID keyboard input! so I've mapped those to keyboard short cuts in my window manager, which calls a script I wrote called button.sh with an argument for the proper button pressed. all button.sh is is a large bash case statment that that takes the command line argument and calls what i want done [example: mute, next track, volume up, pause]
Currently I'm not happy with the short vs long keypresses. The joycon will output one short keypress but once it switches to long it seems to send rapid fire style keypress, not sure how to use that yet.
i figure it should be used for something like short press of volume up key could be increase by 5% where as held rapid fire would first send the +5% then the rapid fire from the rest of the press and hold would increase the volume 1%. 1% because the button presses come VERY quickly.
Thoughts, suggestions, or info on what you're doing is always welcome!
