Happy Hacking

The Happy Hacking Lite2 keyboard from PFU is a great, space saving, keyboard, but it has one crucial drawback for Macintosh users: the [enter] key is missing. Don't be fooled by the 'enter key' positioned between [shift] and [delete]; it is just a mis-labeled [return] key.

To return [enter] to the Happy Hacking keyboard you can download the modified US key layout file from this page. Using this key layout you can press [option] + [return] to send [enter].


Press 'enter' to continue

Makes it possible to press [enter] using the Happy Hacking Lite2 keyboard.

US Key Layout

Implements only the US keyboard layout. Switch to your native key layout when needed.

New and improved in version 1.1

  • Solves problems with some programs, notably Xcode.

Everyday Use

There is one disadvantage to using a key layout file to implement an enter key; it only works for one key layout at a time, in this case the US keyboard layout. Luckily, switching between keyboard layouts is easy using Mac OS X, if you need access to local characters.

Note: You only need this file if you are using the Happy Hacking Lite2 model, all other PFU keyboards have built-in enter keys.
