How to remap nova air's "volume buttons" to page up / down

Apparently the nova air's page turning buttons are set as volume up/down in a lot of apps... I would like them to be page up/down in certain apps instead (nytimes, inoreader etc).

It's not enough to rely on certain apps picking it up because I want to permanently rotate the boox to reverse portrait so it's more comfortable to change page up/down and I want the down button to be next page.

Tasker is installed but I have no idea how to map this correctly. Has anyone done this or do you have any guidance?

Many thanks!

Normally the physical keys are mapped in /system/usr/keylayout/gpio.kl You can switch them around there. Having the buttons do different things in different apps is a bit non-standard. It would be easier to mod the misbehaving apps to take PU/PD.

I think I'm going to leave the rotation as reverse portrait for most things. I just need get the volume button to be page up/down in nytimes/inoreader/brave browser and in koreader.

i have tried tasker without success as well as button mapper pro. couldn't get it working

koreader lets me do volume up/down page up/down but i'd like to reverse the order.

Ah, sorry. You tried it. Doesn’t it get caught when you try to “Add new button”?
