How do I install Triggerhappy?

Postby GlennG » 24 Sep 2019, 01:01

I'm trying out Rune for a player in my car, and so far it seems to be suitable. I need to install Triggerhappy to interface with my steering wheel controls. I'm used to Debian based systems - no experience at all with Arch. Pacman has no listing of it, I have downloaded PKGBUILD from repository https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/triggerhappy-git/ but I have no idea how to proceed.

In case this pointer is of use to anyone, I have found an article that explains how to install Triggerhappy on RuneAudio/ArchLinux - see https://nishil.in/blog/Turn-on-off-appliances-using-a-TV-remote-and-Raspbery-Pi/ . (I have successfully tested the approach described on RuneAudio+R e3.)

In fact I tried compiling it the way that Nishil described (but copying across the correct versions of triggerhappy.service and triggerhappy.socket). This all worked fine with RuneAudio+R e3, and it would work interactively with RuneAudio+R e4, but when I tried to start the service on e4 it did nothing until it eventually timed out and failed – so in the end I found the most reliable method was to fire up a Raspbian/Raspberry Pi OS system, install Triggerhappy, save the relevant files and copy them across to the RuneAudio system. I have described this process at step 20 of my blog article at https://vaughanharper.com/2020/08/12/configuring-an-infrared-remote-control-to-control-runeaudio-archlinux-without-needing-lirc/ .
