I'm not sure I understand. I fixed the Atreus layout, I then added support for two new keyboards, the Atreus62 and Minorca. I also added better File > Save/Build Firmware functionality as well and submitted a pull request. (got tired of it asking for a filename each time).

I do not want to be a maintainer of this project, as I know nothing about the internals of keyboard firmware, but my repo address is https://github.com/jcowgar/EasyAVR where anyone with these new keyboards can get the code. I also merged in the JD40 v2 pull request outstanding on the original project.

The maintainer has not been seen for months, that's why I said I don't know when/if your pull request will be accepted.  The thanks were on behalf of the community - more boards can only be a good thing :)

Most people who come here are not coders they just download the windows zip then ask in the thread when they have issues, or they ask about unsupported boards.  I keep an eye on the thread so if someone asks about an Atreus now I know it's been fixed and can point them in the right direction.  The 'broken list' is not public or official, it's just for me.

If you want you could update/add the attached configs to your fork?  The KC60 beeull posted "Works with latest Massdrop board" and correct the GH60 I did, it now supports all LEDs, and the split right shift and FN are not swapped.

Only problem is if you aren't going to make a Windows package they both need the device IDs tweaking so they don't conflict with the included wrong versions in the Windows zip, so I tend to attach modified versions to make it easier.  There really isn't any way round this...

So I'm having trouble with a toggle function layer, I press f3 to use it and my keyboard gets stuck on that layer. Only way to fix it is unplug the keyboard.

If you use a toggle FN you press it once then stay on that layer until you press another toggle FN to switch to a different layer.  To get back to the default layer you need to assign a key on layer 3 as FN3 :thumb:

Hi folks.

It looks like it has been five months since I logged on to Geekhack.  I think it's safe to say I've left the hobby.  I still love my keyboards but I just can't find the time anymore.

How are things at the moment?

Thanks a lot, I guess my next step is learning how to put macros on that layer.

@watsyurdeal: Not exactly sure what your problem is with macros. The M-Keys are the macro keys. You simply assign them just like any other key and then you write the macro into the corresponding form at the bottom of the keymapper window. You have to adhere to a certain syntax, but there is a help file for writing macros that I found very helpful.

I actually just came to this thread to thank you for the software so it is very cool you are passing though.
I'm not a programmer but can monkey-see/monkey-code. I've been beating on QMK for a day or so trying to get a new build to work and was chalking my troubles up to hardware. I thought before I resoldered stuff and posted to /r/olkb I'd give Easy AVR a try. After a quick copy/paste/edit of the handwire.py file, I put a couple of layers together to test the things I couldn't get working and BAM (well, avrdude command anyway), its not a hardware problem. Your software really lived up to its name.

Thank you!

having trouble getting easy avr to run/install on new install of ubuntu. pulled via svn but the easykeymap.sh script doesn't want to run. not very familiar with linux but looked like best platform for this. python is installed & present, got dfu-programmer to install, so this is the only piece yet i believe...

any help would be greatly appreciated.

On my install (MacOS) I had to set the executable permissions for the script. What happens if you manually execute the commands from the script?

mac is my daily os as well but running an old verion of 10.6.8.

linux seemed to be the better supported OS for this type of development. plus, i needed to setup a new server anyway.

cd "$( dirname "$0" )/keymapper"
python -m easykeymap.gui

when trying to execute in terminal:
Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
chmod +x easykeymap.sh
Also, it appears your installation of Python on your Linux server is insufficient to run EasyAVR.  You need to install more packages.  If you are using a debian-based distro such as Ubuntu, then you need to run something like this:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install python-tk
But, to be honest, you might want to check out the compiled Windows releases.  They are created for novice users.

@nevin: you said your daily is MacOS. Give that a try - that worked for me straight forward. When you call the easykeymap.sh, the MacOS suggests to install XCode; I did that and since then it is working fine for me.

Hey metalliquaz, if you still read this:
I wanted to thank you for creating this awesome software! I've been using a nonstandard layout for over 10 years. I was afraid I'd have to go back to QWERTZ because there are only a handful of developers left that make sure the drivers work on new systems (win/mac/linux). Thanks to your software and a programmable keyboard I don't need to depend on updated drivers anymore :) Thank you so much! Too bad you are about to move on ;(

Hi, so I'm a big noob when it comes to programming and keyboards and stuff, but thanks to this software I've been able to customise my Filco keyboard (with a Pegasus Hoof controller). However, I have run into one issue that I'm having trouble getting rid of. Every now and then when I hit the spacebar it registers as two presses, and even though it doesn't happen all the time it's still quite frustrating. Some times it just counts as a double press when I hit the spacebar, so that I get two spaces between words, but other times it also ends up inserting an extra space after the first one or two letters in a word. This is just a problem with the spacebar, every other key seems to work just fine.

So I looked around, checked the help stuff and found that debounce time might be the problem. I tried changing the debounce time to 10ms with the config like the help section said (and I'm pretty sure I did it correctly), but I haven't really noticed a difference and it doesn't appear to have fixed my issue. Maybe I'm being a big dummy and asking a stupid question here, but I'm kind of lost and would appreciate some help!

No, this is a very common problem, and I've been working on it lately. I'm in the hospital right now so I can't write a long post, but try setting the debounce to 16 for now. I have realized that 6 is way too short for EasyAVR's "hair trigger" algorithm.

A new version is posted at the DT wiki.  It adds some updates to debounce.

Here is a write-up of debounce in EasyAVR

So, one thing that EasyAVR doesn't have is internationalization.  That kind of feature is hard.  I'm an American so everything in there is US-centric.  Sorry.

The way it works is that the scancodes for non-US keys are exactly the same as they are for the US keys that fill the same spot on the layout.  So Alt Gr is normally placed just to the right of the spacebar where our Right Alt key is.  Therefore, if you just use Right Alt, and your PC is set to use German, then it will be interpreted as Alt Gr.

Alright, thanks for your answer.
Actually I had another problem why it wasn't working, but now it's mapped correctly.
I managed to just map it to right Alt key, and it works like expected.

Hi, fellow German here. Actually you don't need the AltGr key at all. Just like metalliqaz said, it just depends on the key you want to "see". Or just imagine the ALtGr being a different layer.

And another question: I have my main layer on Layer 0. I created a layer 2, which I can access by pressing one key, and I stay in the new layer after that (because I set it to "toggle").
How can I return from that layer to the original Layer? I can switch to different layers with SCANCODE_FNx, but right now I can't find a way to return to my default layer
Sorry if anyone has described how to do this somewhere already, but I couldn't find it.

I think what you need to do is, put another SCANCODE_FN2 on that layer 2 and also set it to "toggle". That way you switch back to layer you've been on before.

This is the correct answer.  It's a "toggle", which means press once to activate, press again to deactivate.

ok. been a little while since my last post on the subject... (post#2061)

i ended up running the windows version w/flip. worked like a charm. thank you very much! currently typing on my GH60/pure

my mac was running an older version of python than required, and the ubuntu i had installed on another box wouldn't run it because of the python install not being complete. (ImportError: No module named tkinter) and trying to install the package (sudo apt-get install python-tk) said the package could not be found (probably because of repositories or something...)

it may have been brought up before, but in the layout editor in EASY AVR, the extra key to the right of the shift (in the GH60 pure layout) gets recognized as the the shift key & the shift key is recognized as the extra key to the right. i can upload image for illustration if needed. got it figured out. you just need to flip those two keys in the GH60 pure layout.

thanks again for making this great tool available to us.
and if there is anything i can do to help/give back let me know.

(ImportError: No module named tkinter) and trying to install the package (sudo apt-get install python-tk) said the package could not be found (probably because of repositories or something...)

it may have been brought up before, but in the layout editor in EASY AVR, the extra key to the right of the shift (in the GH60 pure layout) gets recognized as the the shift key & the shift key is recognized as the extra key to the right. i can upload image for illustration if needed. got it figured out. you just need to flip those two keys in the GH60 pure layout.

thanks again for making this great tool available to us.
and if there is anything i can do to help/give back let me know.
I released a new version a few days ago that included an update to the GH60 from suicidal orange (I think). that might already have your fix.

...BIG SMILE. Yes, it's a lot at first. No sleep, etc. but it gets better and is totally worth it. Hang in there, you'll be great!

Everything your parents told you about kids is true & one thing they probably left out was that you'll be tripping on their toys & stuff till they're old enough to move out of the house...

congrats.

I have this pcb coming (Satan RGB60 PCB) and was wondering if I can program it with Easy AVR - https://world.taobao.com/item/544439476756.htm?fromSite=main
This will be my first build so am a bit apprehensive :(

Yes, definitely you can. I just got this Satan pcb and tested it with EasyAVR and it works perfectly.
CORRECTION : Sorry, I thought you were talking about the regular Satan board... I don't know about the RGB version... Please ignore this post... Thanks

I'm not exactly sure. There is already support for "GH60 Satan" PCB in EasyAVR. I don't know how similar the RGB model is. If it uses a USB AVR, then we can support it. However the RGB LEDs aren't supported.

Releases are now made at Github instead of just posting links to my Dropbox on the DT wiki.

Version v2.05.02 is posted today with the following updates

  • Optimization tweaks and code cleanup
  • Add support for ACPI power buttons
  • Expand media keys support

This builds on the previous release, which incorporated jcowgar's work
