    Navigation by keyboard does not work yet and you have to have a keyboard connected to pcp.

    ./framebuffer-vncserver [-f device] [-p port] [-t touchscreen] [-h]
    -p port: VNC port, default is 5900
    -f device: framebuffer device node, default is /dev/fb0
    -k device: keyboard device node, (example: /dev/input/event0)
    -t device: touchscreen device node (example:/dev/input/event2)
    -h : print this help
    Thanks Ralphy

    I did look at the script and rewrote to use the keyboard event if no touch was detected but even though VNC run up and I could view it I could not control.
    I'll spend a little more time have another go at some point.

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for looking into the keyboard support.

    Paul mentioned that there's a gpio-keys driver in post #14 of this thread. Which could remove the need for a keyboard device. I just haven't had time to investigate it.

    The original keyboard code in framebuffer-vncserver doesn't support all key events so it still needs to be updated.

    1-Touch, 5-Classics, 3-Booms, 1-UE Radio
    Squeezebox client builds donations always appreciated.
