Recently I posted an instructable about a footswitch to hide all the windows in Windows XP, but I spend most of the time in Linux programming drupal websites, so I made this one to be used "At work also" =P
The other day I found an old unused sports wheel, along with its foot pedals, I thought it will be nice to use the pedals to rotate the cube desktop in Linux, just to show off or impress some new customers... well not really.
I have configured my Linux Desktop Effects (I have installed Ubuntu 8.04) this way:
When you press Ctrl + Alt + Right arrow
the cube turns right, and
When you press Ctrl + Alt + Left arrow
the cube rotates to the left.
So we'll be making a switch to mechanically press the keys in the right order to achieve the effect
This instructable is VERY cheap, but it requires a little bit of work.
Thank you and have fun!
