Sean McCreary 313 Posted February 7 Share Posted February 7 (edited) I am looking for a few beta testers for an unofficial-UNOFFICIAL variant build of LineageOS 20 for the Pro1-X. While it is compatible with the official beta published on XDA, it includes additional keyboard features, some of which may not be present in the final official-OFFICIAL release of LineageOS. The additional features include: Support for Pro1-X models with QWERTZ, AZERTY, and Scandic keyboards The custom key map feature from the pro1 Reassign the right-hand yellow arrow key to AltGr, from "Settings -> System -> Languages & input -> Physical keyboard -> Advanced settings -> Right FN key sends AltGr" (We weren't trying to hide that, honest!) Hide the Android navigation bar, from "Settings -> System -> Buttons -> Enable on-screen nav bar". You may also want to enable gesture navigation for use when the keyboard slider is closed, in "Settings -> System -> Gestures -> System navigation". Personally I prefer to use keyboard shortcuts instead of the navigation bar, and bask in the increased screen area usable for other things 🙂 For reference, the keyboard shortcuts for the three buttons in the Android navigation bar are: BACK is F-logo key (Meta) + Backspace HOME is F-logo key + Enter RECENTS is "yellow arrow key" (Fn) + Tab, or Alt + Tab. Each has a different UI behavior. Some things still don't work as well as we'd like. The problem with native Android language overlays remains, but has been minimized as much as possible. If you select a language overlay in "Settings -> System -> Languages & input -> Physical keyboard -> Builtin Keyboard -> Set up keyboard layouts" other than one of the "F(x)tec defaults", the yellow arrow key (Fn) mappings won't work any more. On the QWERTY keyboard, this means you won't be able to type '\' or ';' 😞 To better support languages other than English we have remapped the Sym key to AltGr, and many of the yellow characters printed on the QWERTZ, AZERTY, and Scandic keyboards may still be available via combinations with AltGr, just not always where F(x)tec intended 😕 We have also defined parallel mappings using Shift and Caps Lock in addition to Fn whenever possible. Rather than juggling your delicate and rare Pro1-X, always try using Caps Lock instead of pressing three keys at once 😉 And let me know if you find a three-key combination with Shift that I have missed! As we are still not using the final keyboard driver, the two presets for "FN + SPACE sends POWER" and "FN + top row sends F1-F12" don't work in the current build (lineage-20.0-20230206-UNOFFICIAL-pro1x.zip). These features require further changes that are not yet ready for beta testing. You can download the test build from https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Vs2gpUFJx9WRYMc2a2m7IHM0wWuP4_VU, and it can be installed using the same instructions as the normal beta builds. You don't need to factory reset when upgrading from an official beta to an unofficial one, and you shouldn't need to when switching back either. However, since this variant may have different bugs from the beta test on XDA, please use this thread to report bugs and I will try to fix them ASAP 🙂 Edited February 7 by Sean McCreary Fix typo 4 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
