Christmas Wii-remote xmms hack
Written by Walter Schreppers on 27/12/2006
Well I got this nice christmas present a Wii remote!
But I don't own a Wii console. So I hacked away in edubuntu linux and got it to control my xmms mp3 player. All buttons except power button work as follows:
Up: previous song in playlist Down: next song in playlist Left: reverse song Right: forward song A: Toggle Shuffle B: Toggle play/pause 1: Left mouse button -> yes pointing also works if you make a sensor bar with some plain IR-leds 2: Right mouse button Home: exit xmms-wii application And the best part: shake the remote! Shake a little bit and it skips to next song. Shake it a lot and it skips more songs at a time.
