FS#9142 - Add keymaps for Sansa E200 to enhance intuitiviness

The Sansa E200 simulator is unusable in laptops, where there is no keypad, and the available keymaps are rather unintuitive.

This patch adds additional keymaps to the player:

Added PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN as BUTTON_UP/BUTTON_DOWN respectively.

Added END/ESCAPE/BACKSPACE as BUTTON_POWER

Added RETURN/ENTER (keypad) as BUTTON_SELECT

Regards,
Tomer Shalev

A patch which adds these keymaps

It works if your keyboard has number keys available by using the Function Shift key (Fn).
Mine has the numpad on 789, uio, jkl and m. Make sure NumLock is on, hold down Fn and there you areā€¦

True. It works this way.
But this way it is definitely not intuitive, and it is also not comfortable to use.
The patch I attached only adds new keys. It does not remove the old one, so I guess there should not be any problem using it.

Yes, but at least on my setup that doesn't work.

Well, Fn is more than uncomfortable, especially since those numkeys with Fn are a bit diagonal, since they are on normal keys. I highly agree with those changes, they'd defintely make it easier on my laptop too.

I guess similar changes can be done to other players as well.
I did not do it myself, as I am only familiar with the Sansa e200.
It would be nice if more people will think on how to improve keymap of their players, too, and add patches in this task.

BTW, how long does it takes for this to be committed? Who's involved?

Please close this issue, as #9252 is a more general solution (involves all platforms, not just e200).
Issue #9252 contains the new e200 simulator keymaps changes made in this issue.
