Hey everyone,
I was going to build my own digital picture frame so i wanted to know if it is possible to lock out the keyboard so that way the slide show wont be disrupted by an accidental key press, and of course i would want to be able to unlock it by press a certain key combo. an example of what i want to do would be like the key gaurd on a cell phone. the distro i want to use is DSL

You ... unplug the kb! :shock:

Plug it back in when you need to reconfigure something.

You could probably write something that captures all of the keyboard input and then does something when it detects a series of key presses.

I'm sure that there are many ways to make this more complicated than it needs to be. ;)
