Use that Q1 ‘joystick’ to move the cursor

7 Comments

Q1_joystick I know I just mentioned that I like the design and feature-set of the Samsung Q1, but if I had to pick the Achilles Heel, it would be the analog mushroom-like joystick. You can use it to jump the cursor around if you hold a hardware button down, but it moves in increments of pixels, so I never use it. It’s been utterly useless for me, but that might be changing.

Over in the Origami Project forums, Ticonderoga has developed a re-mapping application that remaps the arrow keys to the mushroom and provides a left mouse-click via the Enter hardware button. I haven’t had a chance to try this on Samantha yet, but thought some other enterprising Q1 users might want to give it a shot! Check back in if you do, and I’ll do the same when time permits.

Thanks everyone !

But is the “MouseRBtnDown” the good choice for u2. I get no right click with this setting ?

I really want right-click for Strokeit, not left click.

I know there is a one screen virtual mouse with samsung Q1 but so big. I tried mini-mouse scroller but so big too and nothing about right-click. The best way coul be a miniature virtual trackball on the top.

Cable59, yes it is possible. Right click the tray icon and select options. You can change the speed settings there.

Lorie, you can also change the settings in Stroke-It to recognize left-mouse button gestures instead of right-mouse button gestures. If you need to click and drag something, and not have it be recognized as a gesture, just hold the button a little longer, and Stroke-it will disregard the gesture.

for the right clik, you can use the U key
you can configure U2 as right clik and U4 as left click

Though an analog stick would be better than the provided d-pad, I haven’t found the d-pad useless; I use it for fine scrolling (and side scrolling, when necessary) through web pages and documents all the time. I use the User keys for “pg up”, “pg dwn”, brower’s “back”, and F11; together with the 8-way pad, that’s rapid access to any part of a page.

I may give the utility a try, though, just to see if it would change how I use my UMPC.
