OLPC XO keyboard support daemon

The olpc-kbdshim daemon is used to handle keyboard events on the somewhat unique OLPC XO hardware. It does this by monitoring the keyboard and touchpad, enabling the XO "grab" keys and touchpad rotation (to match screen rotation), and reporting user (in)activity. It can also bind the XO screen rotate, brightness, and volume keys to appropriate commands (which are provided).

This package provides the non-hal version, which runs as a standalone daemon.

Package version:12-3



Note -- there are two versions of olpc-kbdshim -- one
    integrated with HAL, and the other not.  The former can
    monitor USB input devices, the latter cannot.  The non-hal
    version is not currently maintained, nor released, but is
    available in the olpc-kbdshim git tree for anyone that would
    like to use this functionality a non-hal based system.


olpc-kbdshim (12-3) unstable; urgency=high

  * Init script should check /proc/device-tree/model rather than /ofw/model,
    as that's where the upstream kernel places the device tree.  Last minute
    fix for squeeze.
