    Have you tried to remap keys using .hwdb.
    I am not very acknowledgeable, but got my ATI Remote Wonder II working. There were also many non working buttons.


    Let me know if you need some help. Created a thread on the OpenELEC forum some time ago.


    Regards

    I am using the original Mele F10 and am quite satisfied.
    Also, on another box have the ATI Remote Wonder II (VERY old). Both are RF remotes, which I will recommend.
    After fiddling a little bit with remapping buttons in hardware got both working to my liking.


    would you mind testing this old milhouse build? LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.0-Milhouse-20160423121110-#0423-gf1aef79.tar


    I ask because it uses libinput instead of evdev. Perhaps it will work better with your trackpad.


    Thanks Irusak, tested the mentioned build and the touchpad works as expected. libinput seems to do the trick.
    Is there any chance to check evdev config of the newer builds.
    It has to be something related.


    Also, tested brightness controls as reported in other thread but they do not work with the indicated build.


    Regards


    I just updated from OpenELEC to LibreELEC to hopefully get sound to work on my Asrock ION 330 box. Sadly the upgrade didn't fix the sound issue. I have some faint memories of problems with certain Nvidia driver versions on this particular hardware. Or is there some other known issue with this particular hardware?


    Would you mind pasting here the logs?


    Otherwise is hard to tell. My Revo 3610 using Atom 330 cpu works fine.

    Thank you. Tried to download the file, but it is not there. Checked the folder and oldest file is dated from June. Have you got any other link for download?


    Is there any chance to check the evdev config in the newer builds to see if it is messed up/broken? (If such config file exists)


    Thanks

    Hi, I am fairly new to LibreELEC, but participated many times in the former OpenELEC forums.


    At this time, I am facin an ackward issue. I cuurently am using v7.90.2 on my ThinPad T440p, and have noticed that the Synaptics touchpad behaves in absolute mode, as opposed to the "usual" relative mode. This proves to be very unconvenient for using Chromium, and would like to revert the behavior to the former relative mode. Absolute mode makes almost imposible to simultaneously select an item in any corner or edge of the screen and click it, as there are no physical mouse buttons available.


    I am not sure if this is a bug, or a desired design feature, but in any case, I would rather have a way to chose which mode I like the best.


    Some debugging information:


    dmesg output:
    baFG


    kodi.log output (in debug mode):
    eKCc



    Your help or troubleshooting guidance will be appreciated.


    Thank you

    Dear all, after a while of not seing updates in OpenELEC I realized many of the developers forked into LibreELEC, so I switched here.
    First of all I would really like to congratulate you on the project and sustained support for all of us users.


    As I mentioned, I came from OpenELEC system, and I have noticed since the last upgrades, initially to OpenELEC beta and Milhouse builds and lately to LibreELEC 7.0.2 that the brightness control built in on my ThinkPad T440p notebook does not work. I have tested it in both v7.0.2 and LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.002 ALPHA.
    I have alse replicated this same issue in another T450.


    Some notes and troubleshooting I have already done:
    * Tried the system that came from the upgrade (severals) and also a clean fresh install. Same beahviour.
    * If I set the brightness before Kodi loads, it works, but upon load it goes to full brightness.


    Usually it is activated via Fn + F6/F5, to no avail. It looks like it is a kernel issue (or a keymap issue). I am using both Kali and Xubuntu on the same machine, and on both distros brightness operates flawlessly.


    Quick search on the web shows many results related to this same issue in different Linux Flavours.


    Attached are links for dmesg, kodi.log and backlight information (below)

    Code
    OpenELEC-T440p:~ # ls /sys/class/backlight/
    intel_backlight


    dmesg output:
    baFG


    kodi.log output (in debug mode):
    eKCc


    Latest keypresses reflect key to change brightness, apparently keys are not recognized.




    Your help or troubleshooting guidance will be appreciated.



    Regards



    Edit 1: installed System Tools Addon and using getscancodes the system does not seem to recognize the brightness adjust keys.

    Code
    LibreELEC-Portable:~ # getscancodes /dev/input/event4
    Input driver version is 1.0.1
    Input device ID: bus 0x11 vendor 0x1 product 0x1 version 0xab54
    Input device name: "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"


    It may be related to the latest update to the .hwdb syntax.


    If you want to solve this you could make a custom xorg.conf and use edid.bin.
    Configuring a Custom xorg.conf - OpenELEC


    The reason for no video showing is because xorg asks the tv what outputs are available at boot. So if there is nothing connected/powered on, it will not detect it. With this config you tell it what output to use, and what resolution etc. So afterwards you can power on/off your htpc regardless of what the tv is doing.


    This is not as much of a bug as it's a feature.


    I am not sure if it has anything to do, but have noticed that if in the no HDMI out situation I start Chromium, the screen config is "extend" mode. That is, I can move dl the mouse to the right beyond Chromium screen and it shows on a black background of the external TV.


    Could this be that cause, the driver defaulting to extend instead of Clone?


    I am using a ThinkPad t440p with HD4000 on board video card.
