Digital camera, eh?
Well, as an addendum, after pushing several keys for a while out of
frustration, it finally registered a "gap". So I went through the
process of testing every key, and you can imagine my frustration when I
finished and found every key was coded as 0x0. Here's the less
vacuous-looking part of the config file:
one 0 0
zero 0 0
Now what do I try?
