When I check the
Try to get exclusive access to device option, the analyzer stops seeing any input data,
I used to but have uninstalled Karabiner Elements which was used to control the device I am trying to use here, its a generic macropad with keys set as particular keypress combinations (Command+L to lock etc),
Is there a way I can know why exclusive access is not working currently via some shell script to solve the immediate issue and is this something that BTT can maybe show in future, I saw another discussion about this so wondering.
My usecase here is that for example,
I want Command + L on this macropad keyboard only to trigger Lock screen but only on this macropad,
I tried using Keyboard Shortcuts but that applies it to all keyboards even if I select only from same keyboard type (what does type mean here, is it the layout like US UK etc ?),
I tried using Key sequences and while that works with Recognize only on keyboard used for recording, it also inputs Command + L besides executing the assigned option which is a problem.
Generic devices seems like the best option but seems to not allow exclusive access and without it I am still getting the default action of that keypress (Command + L) happening.
TLDR: If there is a way for a keyboard shortcut to be detected only from a particular device then it will address my usecase perfectly.
Otherwise if Generic deviecs is the ideal use case here then is there a way to know why exclusive access isnt working.
Also, I just started using BTT and have to say this is amazing and I was surprised not only about how well it worked for the purpose I installed it originally for (More Trackpad gestures) but also how many other utilities it replaced so well. Great work!
