It is wokk fine on my Nexus 7 2013 tab (Sailfish port) and O'Click BT keyboard. Thank you so much.Taskswither on Nexus 7 Sailfish port

 

After install don't forget make:
 systemctl --user enable harbour-taskswitcher
 systemctl --user enable harbour-taskswitcher-user
as root  and reboot.

things to check, are the 2 daemons running? harbour-taskswitcher and harbour-taskswitcher-daemon. use systemctl --user if theure not or reboot maybe, let me know which works. joirnalct will show if the device has been found and which device it opened. finally, only works with left alt atm, i will update with support for right alt.

thank you very much!  I installeld it on my Nexus7 with Sailfish port. And try work with BT keyboard, but switch by alt-tab not worked. This keyboard seen at settings as Bluetooth Keyboard. I setup it with:
dconf write /uk/co/piggz/taskswitcher/deviceName "'Bluetooth Keyboard'" 
 It 's right?
