We have change the path of our keymap files in LANmote version 1.5 to the /data folder instead and it should now work in all rooted devices because the /data partition is always writable. If it still didn't work, navigate to these folder to see if these files exists.

\data\system\devices\idc\LANmote.idc
\data\system\devices\idc\LANmoteMT.idc
\data\system\devices\keychars\LANmote.kcm
\data\system\devices\keylayout\LANmote.kl

Comment if you still have such problem.

For older version of LANmote, if you experience similar problems, it is possible that somehow your device did not copy these essential files to the /system read-only partition of your device.

To check, install EStrong file explorer (ver 3.0.0), go to -> Tools -> Root explorer -> Mount R/W -> enable RO for system. Then, navigate yourself to see if these files exists.

\system\usr\keychars\LANmote.kcm
\system\usr\keylayout\LANmote.kl
\system\usr\idc\LANmote.idc
\system\usr\idc\LANmoteMT.idc

If these files do not exist, this is the reason LANmote doesn't work correctly because these files specify the keyboard inputs.

If you don't see these LANmote files in the folder, manually copy these files to the corresponding folder
You should be able to write these files to the corresponding folder by changing the Mount R/W option in EStrong to RW.

If you can't write to your system partition, our only recommendation is to change your ROM's firmware because this is your ROM's bug/problem.

when I write a key on web page in the client, I obtain another key displayed e.g. if I enter 'c' , 's' is displayed
portable, 21.04.2013, 06:11
Like I said before, I need more information than that. E.g. what device is LANmote installed on, what IME are you using on what device. The reason being that we don't see this bug on all devices we tested. Without further information, I would only conclude that there is a problem with your Android device or key mapping on your device. Please also try to uninstall LANmote and then install the latest version. Also try to see if you see the same bug after you change the browser input method to "Send text manually"

My device is rikomagic mk802II. I tried with the 3 input methods. My keyboard is set as Android italiano, I tried also other keyboards, like LANmote without any result
portable, 22.04.2013, 10:05
Some questions are still unanswered. I am unable to reproduce your bug even if I set my phone (remote) to italiano and input english characters. However, I think the problems is due to your device's key being mapped incorrectly. If you see this thread, you can see others mentions that MK802 maps keys incorrectly, so you need to fix this and LANmote should then work correctly http://www.rikomagic.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=85&start=50

Try to replace your /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl with the appropriate one from the repository
http://source.android.com/tech/input/key-layout-files.html
frankge973, 23.04.2013, 16:49
no, I noticed (using an app called External keyboard helper pro), that every key that I press on your app (on browser text area), the scan code is ALWAYS 0. May be this the problem?
portable, 24.04.2013, 02:18
Are you using Android Chrome browser? Android Chrome have bug which means it can't return any keycode. Work around for this is to change input setting to "Send text by time interval" or "Send text manually"

Use EStrong file explorer (ver 3.0.0) -> Tools -> Root explorer -> Mount R/W -> enable RO for system. Then, navigate yourself to /system/user/

Copy these folder to your SDcard, so that you can sent them all to me to investigate (sent me a link to download these)
1) keychars
2) keylayout

If you are savvy enough to fix it yourself, it is the key mapping inside these files that is wrong and needs to be corrected.

Hi
Can I just say I think this software is fantastic and if the keyboard issue is resolved will happily pay for it

I too have the same issue I will try your suggestions and I have listed my details below:
Problem - pressing a button on my phones leads to an incorrect character being typed in on the receiver device (device running lanmote)
Reciever device - MK808 ICS stock firmware with android keyboard (I have tried touchpal keyboard aswell and switched to UK English)
Sender device via browser - Xperia play 2.3 stock rom and iPhone 4

I have tried the different key function (send text, and the 2 others) and the lanmote keyboard as active input method.
My MK808 currently uses a bluetooth keyboard and wireless 2.4ghz keyboard, which function correctly,

I hope this helps and a solution can be found, I will the suggestions here and get back in contact

Another MK808 user said he is able to use LANmote by installing Finless 2.1 firmware. You can try that.
frankge973, 24.04.2013, 18:15
You can download from here the two folders in zip format:

Your package is missing LANmote related files... Can you double check if you see these files in the folders?
\system\usr\keychars\LANmote.kcm
\system\usr\keylayoutLANmote.kl
\system\usr\idc\LANmote.idc
\system\usr\idc\LANmoteMT.idc

Without these files, it won't surprise me if LANmote doesn't work properly. (they are normally copied to those folders when LANmote is installed.)

If you don't see these LANmote files in the folder, download and copy these files to the corresponding folder
http:/hdmp4.com/LANmote.kl
http://hdmp4.com/LANmote.kcm
http:/hdmp4.com/LANmote.idc
http:/hdmp4.com/LANmoteMT.idc

You will need to change the Mount R/W option in EStrong to RW to allow you to write into those normally protected system folders.
frankge973, 26.04.2013, 00:19
If I change RW option, I click OK, but the selected option is always R and so I cannot paste files.
How can I change this?
I tried several program and also a terminal emulator with 'su' command, trynig to move
with mv /mnt/usrhost1/LANmote.kcm /system/usr/keychars and it says failed, cross-device link
portable, 26.04.2013, 03:35
You can try to manually remount the /system partition and write to it but it is not likely to work when EStrong can't remount it.
http://lgallardo.com/en/2011/03/13/remontar-partici%C3%B3n-system-de-android-en-modo-rw/

Are you sure you really do have root access? because LANmote doesn't work without. If you have root, you can remount /system and write to it with the right command.
frankge973, 26.04.2013, 00:27
it appears /system is a readonly filesystem even if I logged with su command as root
maybe this the cause because those files have not been installed on that folder. What can I do?
portable, 26.04.2013, 03:43
This is the reason the keymap is incorrect because those essential files cannot be copied to the /system partition. If you configure the device running LANmote to LANmote keyboard, and also make sure it is the selected active keyboard when you are typing, do you get the same characters as you type? because under this mode, it should be inputing through the Android IME instead of through the kernel.
frankge973, 26.04.2013, 09:09
Yes. I have configured LANmote as keyboard and it is the selected keyboard. What I have to do? Impossible to write on /system folder?
portable, 26.04.2013, 12:34
If using LANmote as the selected keyboard didn't help, then making your /system partition writeable would be your only solution for the time being. Otherwise, you can use alternative app such as tablet remote for keyboard input.

frankge973, 26.04.2013, 22:06
i tried. It says system is read-only. What Can I do?
portable, 27.04.2013, 07:15
This is a question you need to ask your device manufacturer or those playing with your device. This is not a problem I can work out without having the same device here. If your device have custom ROM around, then those people building/using those ROM will be able to provide you with a solution.

Or you can find other guides. There are other ways to make /system partition writeable.

As you may have noticed, I have am aware that such problem is possible until you come and provided all the information. Only a handful of user have made such complains so far.

Hi, I'm trying to use lanmote on a new Tronsmart Orion R68, but the keyboard brings up the wrong keys.

The \data\system\devices\idc folder contains only these three files:
\data\system\devices\idc\LANmote.idc
\data\system\devices\idc\LANmoteMT.idc
\data\system\devices\keychars\LANmoteMTalt.idc

So I need the kcm and kl files, right? Where can I get them?
shiznit, 09.08.2015, 08:43
Sorry, I didn't notice the kcm and kl files were in different folders. They're all there. Still, I'm having trouble with the keys. I think it must be the same problem as the guy with the Nexus 9.
portable, 10.08.2015, 05:30
If you are using Android 5.x those files are not going to help/fix the problem. See http://lanmote.idea.informer.com/proj/?ia=93830
Shiznit, 14.08.2015, 09:06
yes, the device is on 5.1.1
Please could you try to get it working on lollipop, I will definitely purchase your app if you can fix it.
portable, 15.08.2015, 04:21
We have been aware of the Android 5.x problem. We have some idea what the problem is and our developer is working on it. However, I don't have a definite date for the fix yet.
