Raspberry Pi

Anyone look at being able to use x-keys on/with Raspberry Pi?

Re: Raspberry Pi

We've had a few people mention doing this.

I've experimented a bit with it myself, though the version of the board I had at the time (older version) had not-so-great USB drivers that prevented even normal (standard qwerty) keyboards from working quite as expected. I haven't tried one of the newer boards, but as I understand it, this issue has gotten better.

Re: Raspberry Pi

Anyone have any more luck with Raspberry Pi?  The 8 X-Key would be a great addition to my Raspberry Pi gauge dash I'm building.

Re: Raspberry Pi

We work fine with modern raspberry pi products as far as I know, please use MW3.1 to program the unit in HW mode and then bring the unit over for testing.

EDIT:
forgot to mention a couple of important points. Our units do require some power to drive the LEDs  (specific power specs on the product page) keep that in mind when using our units with Raspberry PI. Also if you're a developer and are writing software for Raspberry PI you will want to use our LINUX SDK available on our website.
