Congratulations on successfully building your keyboard!
The Bastard Keyboards come with a range of features, and it’s also easy to customize them. On this page you will find additional information on how to use them and make them your own.
If you prefer a video, how to use your trackball/trackpad keyboard is detailed here: video.
Holding down the
MOUSE key (lower left, see picture) activates the mouse layer. On it, you will find a lot of useful features.
The most important ones are on the thumb cluster - it transforms into mouse buttons!
mouse + BTN1: Left click
mouse + BTN2: Right click
mouse + BNT3: Middle click
Sniping slows down the trackball. This way, you can move the cursor more precisely.
By default, Sniping mode is activated when you hold the
MOUSE + SNIP keys at the same time. You can also configure qmk to have it activated automatically.
The 3x5 keyboards (Skeletyl, Charybdis Nano) come flashed with Miryoku. On its github repository you will find useful information on the different layers available.
You can find the latest default images for all Bastard Keyboards in the release section of the BastardKB QMK fork.
All Bastard Keyboards come flashed with VIA. You can open the VIA Web Interface through use.via.app. At the moment, only WebHID-enabled browsers work (eg. Chrome and Chromium-based).
Through VIA, you can customize:
- the keymap
- macros, layers
For how to flash your keyboard, take a look at the readme on the BKB QMK Fork.
For advanced customization of the Charybdis and Charybdis Nano, take a look at the customize page.
