My Atreus arrived today and I’m getting rolling. I use a Dvorak layout on a Mac Air so the first thing I found was that if I just plug it in to the Mac with Dvorak active, there’s no question mark so that drove me to RTFM (read the full manual,) which is where I should have started.
I’ve downloaded Chrysalis and get it, I was able to flash to the latest firmware from here.
Hopefully someone here can guide me to the next step. I think I have two options:
Use Chrysalis to map a question mark, and other tweaks I want, flash it and go. I’m keeping the Mac on Dvorak so if I’m on the road I can still use the laptop keyboard. Upside, I never make changes to my machine regardless of the keyboard I use. The downside here is that if I plug into any other machine if it’s on QWERTY that will be a mess, if I switch it to Dvorak it might work.
Switch my machine back to QWERTY, plug in the Atreus then use Chrysalis to remap the whole thing to Dvorak the way I like it, and flash it. The big win here is I can plug it into any QWERTY machine and have hardware based Dvorak. The downside is that if I don’t have my Atreus with me and my laptop I need to switch the laptop from QWERTY to Dvorak (not that this is a ton of work.)
Am I missing anything?
