seems like it would be fantastic, but i keep getting an
Error opening button event file descriptor: No such file or directory
when i run it in the foreground as mentioned above (to see why it's not working)

and, it's probably because i'm very new to this, but it took me quite a while to figure out that i didn't have build-essential installed to even get this far. would that be something to include in the instructions, or have i just not trolled the forums enough?
