Problem in keyboard input using python pyUserInput module

Postby kmehindru4 » 03 Feb 2015, 05:31

i am working on a project which aim to generate keyboard input in python .I am working on beaglebone black(angstrom) plugged to my laptop using usb.I installed python 2.7 & xlib for it & pUserInput python module but on compilation i am getting error

File "", line 2, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pykeyboard/", line 75, in __init__
self.display = Display(display)[img][img][/img][/img]
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/", line 83, in __init__
self.display = _BaseDisplay(display)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/", line 65, in __init__
apply(protocol.display.Display.__init__, (self, ) + args, keys)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/protocol/", line 44, in __init__
name, host, displayno, screenno = connect.get_display(display)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/support/", line 65, in get_display
return mod.get_display(display)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/support/", line 59, in get_display
raise error.DisplayNameError(display)
Xlib.error.DisplayNameError: Bad display name ""

I am attaching the screenshot of error
i think problem is in display detection .. or is it that i need to use different display & keyboard for my beaglebone and not my laptop ?

Hi kmehindru4,
are you running Angstrom distribution? In that case why are you asking for support in RuneAudio's forum? :)
