I tweaked the script created by cjv123 to Control backlight brightness everywhere! to my likings:
- Better controls for my taste (same as system/launcher, no conflicts):
- Shift+Select for Volume down
- Shift+Start for Volume up
- No brightness control (I don’t need it)
It’s a fork of his/her work, and you can get it here: https://github.com/pedrogpimenta/gameshell_volume_hotkey.
It seems to be working fine
That’s amazing, I’ve been thinking of asking for exactly these changes today! Thanks so much!
If I wanted to change the previous controls with yours, would I only have to exchange the py file?
Correct! In fact, that’s the only file needed for my controls, as I don’t need any other script to control Brightness. So you can even remove the
tools folder from
Important: If you do change the file, keep in mind that I changed the file name so you also need to edit the line in
/etc/rc.local according to my instructions on Github
I hope I see this on the next version of your image
Yay, it worked! Thanks again, I’ll definitely put this on the next version of my custom image (which could come pretty soon, now that the game jam is over).
Great work!! That’s perfect to unify the experience! bookmarked
Was the stepping between each volume also modified? From memory, the original one moved by “20” - which was WAY too much. Changing it to “4” made it much more useable.
The next step would be to modify the hardware to have a physical volume jog dial on the side.
I think this has the old steps of 20, but I might be wrong. How can I change that?
I didn’t change anything but I might try to tonight. I’m out today.
I changed it to 10 now, thanks to github I did it on my mobile phone .
Can’t test it now but I felt it was too much before. Hope you like it this way!
