evmapd is a daemon for the remapping of input events on Linux. The project uses the evdev interface to access an input device, such as a keyboard or a joystick, and then the uinput interface to create a new, virtual device to which the altered events are relayed.

It can be used to remap keys, buttons and axis, or to perform some more complex translations between different event types, such as remapping the POV switches of a joystick to sets of buttons.

In addition it incorporates an auto-calibration algorithm for ABS axis events, which is relatively functional and may be useful for some joystick owners.

What's new in evmapd 0.0.3:

  • --norm now accepts multiple comma-separated arguments
  • --verbose now reports any input axis that will be normalised
  • Fixed broken argument handling for the --norm parameter which rendered the normalisation code useless and often caused a segmentation fault. Apparently, the sample code in the the libcfg+ documentation is broken as well, despite the actual documentation being correct, if only a bit too short. No idea how this rather embarassing issue slipped through, although its manifestation seems to be partly platform and/or compiler dependent. Did I mention that libcfg+ could really use some better (as in 'not broken') example code? (reported by Dave Ahlswede)
  • More verbose ioctl() error messages
