Hmm this apple remote is working nicely with this apple running Linux. W/o me having to do anything for it.
Using this usbview thing http://www.kroah.com/linux/usb/ looks like it is class Class: 03(HID ) i.e. USB human interface device, make sense it works then, still nice.
Tried to use `xte` (https://www.hoopajoo.net/projects/xautomation.html ) to generate page-up/page-down from volume up/-down and back/forward to control, so i can switch tabs and go down pages with it..
But it seems to only work when i manually do it on the cli.. _not_ when the window manager calls a script, or even when the window manager writes a file which another script notices via `inotifywait`... Pretty weird and bad.
Also using it to make button presses does work..
I should RTFM, it's mentioned there. Even mentions `xdotool` which i tried second..
The trick is to use `bind --release` to bind the commands.
