How to use more than one keyboard, one for each player?

Post by SouL » Sat Jul 12, 2014 8:03 am

I would like to use a different keyboard for each player but I don't know where to start looking.

I use GNU/Linux but I would like to know if something changes between different Operating Systems.

Thank you very much, any help is appreciated! :)

Under linux you could read /dev/input/event? (for each input device, i.e. keyboard) and decode it for yourself . That would be low-level and not portable.
My lovely code lives at GitHub: http://github.com/miko/Love2d-samples
