Linux Bluetooth Remote Control 0.8.6

A small program allowing a Java 2 ME and bluetooth enabled device to control a linux computer
Linux Bluetooth Remote Control is a small program allowing a Java 2 ME and bluetooth enabled device to control a linux computer. It consists of a client part on the device and a server part on the controlled computer.

The basic approach of injecting input events via the uinput Device in Linux Kernel 2.6.x. This also means, that the user running LBRC will be required to have write access to the device (currently assumed as /dev/input/uinput). This approach was inspired by the WiiMote(??) Driver written in Python.

The J2ME Part does two things: Scan for an device, where our Service is running and then just send keycodes from the device with additional info, wheter the key was pressed or released.

The Server part receives these keycodes and according to a config file (profiles.conf) maps these to keystrokes, mouse movement, mousewheel movement or mousebutton clicks.

Requirements:

DBUS Part
- uinput Device
- python gobject bindinds
- pybluez
- python-json
- python-dbus

GnomeUI Part
- python-notify
- python-gnome2-extras (egg.trayicon)
- python-dbus
