I bought a Logitech R400 wireless presenter a few days ago. I knew that there wasn’t a driver for OS X and the device is not fully compatible with OS X unless I install application such as Quickeys ($59.95) or Keyboard Maestro ($36).
After trying the trial version of those 2 software, I thought I knew what to do to make the remote work with OS X. So I wrote the required piece of software myself. My motivation to write the software is that I don’t want to pay for Quickeys or Keyboard Maestro.
And here it is, the LPresenter v.1.0.1. download. It does only one thing, to make R400 works with Keynote on mac.
- an Intel Mac computer
- OS X 10.6.0 or higher
- Logitech R400 Wireless Presenter
notes: this program works with R400 only. I’m not certain whether it would work with R800.
Update: a newer version was released, see this post.
