Cotnrollermate's driver is not being used... for generic Thu Jul 19, 2018 12:55 pm  •   #13604

I have a fairly plain USB keyboard that I wish to remap, however I need to access the driver configuration to disable keys passing through.

However I get this message:



Is there anything I can do in this scenario? My goal is to do something like remap the '1' key to 'F1', but without the '1' key passing through.

I am using 10.13.6 and the latest Controllermate as of this post.

So, some more information:

If I unplug and replug my keyboard then Controllermate can take it over.

If I restart at all, then Controllermate seems to lose control of the device. Blocks can still read it but controller configurations no longer work.

Anything I can do about this?

That sounds like a driver priority issue. There can be different priorities during system startup than after the OS is completely running.

Do you have any other non-Apple drivers besides ControllerMate installed for the keyboard?

No I do not. The only peripheral driver on my system is for a Steelseries Sensei 310 mouse and a thunderbolt audio device.

Also, I'm willing to screw around with my system in ungodly ways if there's anything I can do to help fix or diagnose this issue further.

While the Driver Configuration is not active with the keyboard attached, can you create a ControllerMate Profile of your setup? That should reveal the drivers that are controlling the keyboard at that moment.

A profile can be generated by running the Help > ControllerMate Profile command in ControllerMate, and then use the button at the bottom of the profile window to save the results to a file.

Also, what is the make and model of that USB keyboard?

If you send that file to me (and reference this thread), I'll take a look at which drivers are active for the keyboard.
