View Full Version : Control Boxee with Mouse Only
January 15th, 2009, 12:16 PM
I am using it as an internet radio/mp3 player for my home audio system, with a 15" touchscreen as the interface. The only thing that can't be done with a mouse seems to be the back button (Esc). Is there any way I can get around this?
I have to say that I am very impressed with the Boxee alpha so far.

Hmm.. good question. If you used a mouse, there's usually a way to customize clickwheel/middle-button. Not sure about touchscreen. Although, I guess you can always just go back to main Boxee menu.

The right-click has worked as an escape button for me.

Good to know that the right-button does that, but I don't have one on the touchscreen. There may be an option in my touchscreen settings to map double-tap to the right button, I'll have to check when I get home.
I Also tried to use the slide-show screen saver, and got stuck because that required the esc key too.

For anyone interested, I ended up writing a little app to map double-clicks to right-clicks so i could go back with my touchscreen. It can be downloaded here (http://www.nearlogic.com/?p=24).
