Generic_Keyboard.driver is wrong version

Post by chris »

The version number of Libs:AmigaInput/Generic_Keyboard.driver is wrong - it is v51.3, however AmigaInput only loads drivers of v52 and higher. Hence the Generic Keyboard driver does not show up in AmigaInput prefs and (unconfirmed that this is the cause but) the lowlevel.library keyboard functions do not appear to work.

if i'm not wrong then uses the lowlevel.library not the keyboard functions of amigainput.
Did you use a ps2, usb keyboard or a "classic"system ?

@Timothy

Thanks.

@aclogic

lowlevel.library is a wrapper for AmigaInput.library under OS4. If the AmigaInput keyboard driver isn't loading then lowlevel keyboard functions aren't going to work, as AmigaInput has no keyboard devices to read.

The test was with a USB keyboard.
