Mopidy extension for controlling music playback from virtual input device
Install by running:
pip install Mopidy-EvtDev
Or, if available, install the Debian/Ubuntu package from apt.mopidy.com.
Before starting Mopidy, you must add configuration for Mopidy-EvtDev to your Mopidy configuration file:
[evtdev] # Location of virtual input devices dev_dir = /dev/input # List of virtual devices to open which can be either their path, name or physical address # Leave blank to listen to all devices devices = 00:11:67:D2:AB:EE, AT Translated Set 2 keyboard, isa0060/serio0/input0 # Refresh period in seconds to check for new input devices refresh = 10
To permit mopidy to read virtual input devices without root permissions, you need to add the following into /etc/udev/rules.d/99-input.rules:
KERNEL=="event*", NAME="input/%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio"
If you are concerned by security, then create a separate group name and add mopidy as a member to that group. E.g.,
KERNEL=="event*", NAME="input/%k", MODE="660", GROUP="input"
Otherwise, just run mopidy as root to avoid any additional configuration requirements.
- Fixes issue #7: Race hazard - closing and re-opening already devices causes events to be missed.
- Improved unit test coverage.
- Initial release.
