3 Keys on the shield will be mapped to “Up”, “Down”, “Enter” input event.

You need to install a wiringPi library to use the keypads on your ODROID-C1.

0. Install git

sudo apt-get install git

1. Get our wiringPi source code on your ODROID-C1

git clone https://github.com/hardkernel/wiringPi.git

2. Build the source code

cd wiringPi
sudo ./build

3. Compile tftlcd_key source code

gcc -o tftlcd_key tftlcd_key.c -lwiringPi -lwiringPiDev -lpthread

If you failed above command, create new tftlcd_key.c file including below source code into wiringPi directory, and try it again.

4. Run it in background

sudo ./tftlcd_key &
tftlcd_key.c
