2010-02-12 08:52:42 Serial Console Keyboard Input - QT
J V (GERMANY)
I am working with BF548 EZ-Kit and uClinux-dist-2009R1-RC6 and developing an
application with QT. I can run almost any of QT examples and I didnt have any problem
to get a serial mouse working with this examples.
My problem is to get keyboard working with QT.
My thought was to use the serial console as a keyboard input for the QT aplication.
My console is represented by /dev/ttyBF1. With cat /dev/ttyBF1 i was able to get the
characters send over the console.
I tried to export the keyboard variable as follows:
But it didnt work.
Is my thought wrong? How can i use my console as input in Qt aplication?
I also tried a USB keyboard but without results. I read some posts here in this forum
but nothing really helped. Does anybody managed to get a usb keyboard working with QT
UClinux recognizes the keyboard, i can successfully run the event_test and i can use
the keyboard in the console displayed on an LCD display. But nothing happen in any QT
The keyboard is listed under /dev/input/event1, so i tried to
export QWS_KEYBOARD=USB:/dev/input/event1, i did try some other options like
/dev/tty etc. but i couldnt find any working configuration. I did try to define a new device with mknod
and i could run the event_test with this device, but it didnt have any effect.
Do you guys have any thoughts / help for me!
Thanks a lot,

We are not QT expert. Please look result in qt document or help forum. qt.nokia.com/doc/4.1/
But, you can check in advance if you selected Virtual terminal support in your kernel configuration.
