Wow. Thanks for the prompt response. My ubuntu version is:
The output for wminput -v is:Code:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 8.04.1 Release: 8.04 Codename: hardy
The only valid modifiers I see come from the help command and are:Code:~$ wminput -v wminput: invalid option -- v
I should tell you that everything works fine when i use wminput, but I don't want to have to type in "wminput" everytime I want to connect or reconnect.Code:~$ wminput -help usage:wminput [-h] [-w] [-c config] [bdaddr]
I guess I could contribute something, so if anyone is using a MythTV with VLC as the MythVideo player with their WiiMote, I wrote up a myth config file to use with CWiid. Feel free to use it. Since I don't get in the nuts and bolts much, and am not yet tired of documentation, it is, of course, nicely documented. Enjoy and thanks for the help.
Note: You need to go into the VLC interface prefs to change the hotkeys to agree with the key assignments. Hope someone can use this, it's pretty functional for me.Code:#mythtv setup Wiimote.A = KEY_P #myth = play/pause vlc = play/pause Wiimote.B = KEY_ESC #myth = back vlc = back to myth (end video/next in playlist) Wiimote.Up = KEY_UP #myth = nav up vlc = skip ahead 10 minutes Wiimote.Down = KEY_DOWN #myth = nav down vlc = skip back 10 minutes Wiimote.Left = KEY_LEFT #myth = nav left vlc = skip back 30 seconds Wiimote.Right = KEY_RIGHT #myth = nav right vlc = skip ahead 30 seconds Wiimote.Minus = KEY_LEFTBRACE #myth = decrease vol vlc = decrease volume Wiimote.Plus = KEY_RIGHTBRACE #myth = increase vol vlc = increase volume Wiimote.Home = KEY_BACKSLASH #myth = mute vlc = mute Wiimote.1 = KEY_SPACE #myth = select vlc = subtitle toggle Wiimote.2 = KEY_W #myth = asp rat toggle vlc = asp rat toggle
so, neither "wminput -v" nor "wminput -d" work. any help would be appreciated, my info is in the few previous posts. thanks.
How are you able to tell if your computer has a bluetooth adapter?
If you don't, how do you acquire one?
Nice work, now my Wii remote will actually get some use ..

Try with the latest one, or try out XWII

um i know this is rather odd but i think this would be extremly cool if i could get my wii mote to work for some of my emulators anywho...
i dont believe i have a bluetooth pick up in my computer im assuming they are cheap but wondering if i could try this
i have a wireless keyboard and mouse that is connected by a small like usb pick up its from hp and is there a way for me to get it to pick up my wii mote???
I also have a wireless pci card...if that would work???

I doubt your hp usb pickup is actually bluetooth.
Check to see if there's the bluetooth logo on it:
Also check your panel too see if there's the bluetooth loge in there.
Your wireless pci card is for wireless LAN / internet, it's not bluetooth.
Bluetooth usb plug-ins can be bought for AU$10 here, most should just work when you plug it in (check the gnome panel - top right corner in Ubuntu - a bluetooth icon should pop up when your computer is bluetooth enabled).
