Christmas Wii-remote xmms hack
Written by Walter Schreppers
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.
To get this working in ubunto linux you need the following packages:
WMD driver 0.1.2
xmms control written by myself
Read the README's in the .tar.gz's for install instructions
