NAME

input-linux-mouse : Direct mouse input  

SYNOPSIS

input-linux-mouse: [<mousetype>] [,<file>] [,[b<bauds>][r<rts>][d<dtr>]]

 

DESCRIPTION

This input opens a file (usually a device file or pipe) and reads mouse protocol data from it.  

OPTIONS

mousetype
Indicates what type of mouse is attached. The following types are supported:
ms, Microsoft : Two button Microsoft compatible mice.
ms3, IntelliMouse, mman+ : Serial Intellimouse or compatible. Supports four buttons for mice like the Logitech MouseMan+.
MouseSystems, msc : MouseSystems compatible (used in most 3-button mice).
Logitech, logi : Used in older Logitech serial mice.
mm, MMSeries : MM series mice.
Sun : Sun mice. The protocol is the same as 'msc' protocol except it used only 3 bytes per packet.
MouseMan, mman : MouseMan protocol.
BusMouse, bm : Non-PS/2 busmice.
LinuxUSB, lnxusb : IMPS2 that doesn't choke on USB (no init attempted).
ps2, PS/2 : PS/2 mice (most non-serial mice use this protocol)
imps2, IMPS/2 : PS/2 IntelliMouse and compatible (not USB, see lnxusb for that.)
mmanps2, MouseManPlusPS/2 : PS/2 Logitech MouseMan+ and compatible.

Most of the strings supported by GPM, SVGAlib and XFree can be specified. If you find one that isn't, please report.

The special value auto tells input-linux-mouse to read ~/.ggi/input/linux-mouse, and if that fails, $sysconfdir/ggi/input/linux-mouse. If none of the two files are found, input-linux-mouse tries to auto-detect the mouse, and as a last resort uses the mouse information specified in /etc/vga/libvga.config.

file
The file to read mouse protocol data from; defaults to /dev/mouse.

baud
Baud rate of mouse device.

rts
Turns off RTS if set to 0; turns RTS on if set to a number greater than 0.

dtr
Turns off DTR if set to 0; turns DTR on if set to a number greater than 0.

 

FEATURES

Generates evPtr* events.

 

FILES

~/.ggi/input/linux-mouse and $sysconfdir/ggi/input/linux-mouse consists of the following entries:

mouse mousetype
mdev file

where mousetype and file has the same semantics as the invocation options of the same names.
