I was wondering if I would be able to use the PS/2 library from here http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/PS2Keyboard#.Uz94QfldXKM to emulate keypresses from the Arduino to a Windows and possibly Linux PC. It looks like a read only kind of thing, but I'm not entirely sure.
My hope was to use an IR receiver and read in the button presses from that to control programs like VLC and iTunes.
If all of that is possible, am I then able to use a PS/2 to USB convertor like the one below to go into the PC as the motherboard I have doesn't have PS/2.
It all may be a kind of stupid question, but maybe someone here knows can point me in the right direction. My other thought was to send serial commands to a java program which would then use its Robot library to make the key presses for me, but that seems kind of tedious.
Thanks a lot in advance!
