Topic: Problem <include>ing PS2Keyboard library (Read 777 times) previous topic - next topic


I've tried everything I can think of to include the PS2Keyboard library in a sketch, even to reinstalling the IDE. When I select Sketch/Import Library/PS2Keyboard, nothing happens, unlike the other libraries.  If I type "#include <PS2Keyboard.h>" at the head of my sketch I will get a
" 'PS2Keyboard' does not name a type"  compile error. The PS2Keyboard files in the library directory all seem to be present and in order. I've read everything I can find on the subject and tried the latest PS2Keyboard.h and PS2Keyboard.cpp files from the Playground without effect.
As you can tell I'm a "babe in the woods" here. Can you help me??


If the Sketch + Import Library function does not show the PS2Keyboard library, that is a clue that the library is NOT installed correctly.

What OS are you using? What version of the IDE?
Where are the PS2Keyboard.h and PS2Keyboard.cpp files?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.


I am using Arduino 0022 and Windows XP. The PS2Keyboard files are in Program Files/arduino-0022/libraries/PS2Keyboard


After reinstalling the IDE, which includes the PS2Keyboard library, I immediately tried including it in a blank sketch with no effect. For me that ruled out the possibility that I had corrupted the files. Has no one else had this problem?


Hoo-ray !!!! I found the solution to the problem.   The .h and .cpp files were inside a folder named PS2Keyboard in the PS2Keyboards library. When I took them out all was well.  Thanks for replying.
