NAME

filter-mouse : Generic mouse event translator  

SYNOPSIS

filter-mouse: [<file>]

 

DESCRIPTION

This filter translates mouse events according to a set of translation rules.  

OPTIONS

file
The name of the configuration file. If none given, the filter will first look for the file filter/mouse in the user GGI directory ($HOME/.ggi/ on UNIX), then in the base GGI directory if not found.

 

CONFIGURATION

The translation rules are specified through a simple text file. The following example gives a good idea of the mouse filter usage. A # marks the rest of the line as a comment.  

EXAMPLE

A set of mouse translation rules:

# Syntax is:
# incoming-type [type-specifics] TO outgoing type [type-specifics]

#
# Simulated mouse buttons on the keyboard
#
#KEY modmask modvalue button label  symbol TO BUT buttonnumber
