cmdpad --device parameter problem

Reported by: vmark Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC4
Keywords: cmdpad Cc:


Dear all,

I use OpenWRT Backfire (10.03.1-rc4, r24045) with "ar71xx"
for my TP-Link WR1043ND (Atheros AR9132) router.

I have an USB numeric keypad with "normal" keys and a "calculator" key. It is connected via USB 1.1 hub.

When I test with cmdpad:
root@OpenWrt:~# cmdpad --debug --device /dev/input/event1
cmdpad - version 0.0.3 - Copyright (C) 2002-2003 Alessandro Fausto

PARSE: command line command device=%s found
PARSE: Command device▒▒` found
PARSE: Command string is 'device' Value is ▒▒`'
Option 'device' expects a /dev/input/eventX argument

It seems there is an operator / link to operator problem in cmdpad's --device data string.

Background info:

I use "standard" cmdpad package: cmdpad_0.0.3-1_ar71xx.ipk

Everything is working as expected
root@OpenWrt:~# ls /dev/input -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 100 Nov 19 20:28 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1100 Jan 10 02:58 ..
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 64 Nov 19 20:28 event0
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 65 Nov 19 20:28 event1
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 66 Nov 19 20:28 event2

cmdpad itself nicely gets event0 data.
If I rename event1 to event0, cmdpad gets old event1 data as well.

I also had a problem specifying --device.
I am new to openwrt so I am not sure what info is needed.
uname -a is: Linux TP-LINK #1 Fri Aug 19 23:10:14 MST 2011 mips GNU/Linux
I am using: ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT (bleeding edge, r28054)

The workaround I found was to edit /etc/cmdpad.conf with the device= line that I wanted (I wanted /event1 instead of event0).
