TOM waits at in silence at the end of the bar. When someone pushes him, he quips out oneliners, setting the mood for the evening. In doing so TOM is essential for the social atmosphere in the lounge. TOM can turn any lame pun into an hilarious joke, a rambling story into a tragedy, and a sandwich into a banquet.

Why TOM?

How do we do it? (How do we do it?)

That's right, you too can be of a TOM. Follow these easy assembly instructions!

  xinput set-button-map "Logitech Optical USB Mouse" 51 52 53 54 55

  "TOM 2"
	b:52
  "TOM 3"

  "TOM mpc -q volume +10"

  "mpc -q volume -10"

#!/bin/bash
STATE=$(ps ax | sed -n '/[0-9] paplay/p')
if [ "$STATE" = "" ]; then
	volume=$(mpc volume | sed 's/.*: *\([0-9]*\)%.*/\1/')
	echo $volume > /tmp/volume
	for ((i=$volume; i > 0 ; i=i-10)); do mpc -q volume $i; done
	mpc -q volume 0
	paplay --volume=65536 /home/barputer/TOM/${1}.wav
	for ((i=0; i < $volume ; i=i+10)); do mpc -q volume $i; done
	mpc -q volume $volume
else
	volume=$(cat /tmp/volume)
	killall paplay
	for ((i=0; i < $volume ; i=i+10)); do mpc -q volume $i; done
	mpc -q volume $volume
fi
 sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/TOM
 xbindkeys


Volume, Volume, Turn up the volume!

Pulseaudio needs to be running, this is the case when the music is player. However, we are still encountering some issues with pulseaudio.

Bugs

When booting barputer TOM might change order with the touchscreen as to which one of them is the first input device (/dev/input/mouse0). This will cause the touchscreen to malfunction, probably because it is adressed as /dev/input/mouse0 in xorg.conf.

The buttons are also wired to pedals, which make and easier target to punch. But the mouse will not be recognized when these are plugged in.
