CuteCom Publisher's description

CuteCom is a graphical serial terminal,.....
CuteCom is a graphical serial terminal, like minicom (or Hyperterminal on Windows, but I don't want to compare CuteCom to it, since Hyperterminal is really one of the worst applications I know).
Currently it runs on Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X.
* easy to use GUI
* no cryptic keyboard shortcuts
* lineoriented interface instead of character-oriented
* Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Q and Ctrl+S control sequences work
* input history
* a cute GUI ;-)
* xmodem, ymodem, zmodem support (requires the sz tools)
* easy to differentiate between typed text and echoed text
* select between read/write, read-only and write-only open mode
* open the device without changing its settings
* hexadecimal input and output
* configurable line end characters (LF, CR, LFCR)
* configurable delay between characters
What's New in This Release:?пїЅ This release has been ported to Qt4 (previously Qt3).
?пїЅ It has the same features as 0.14.2, which is also still available.
System Requirements:?пїЅ Joyevmouse requires a kernel built with evdev and uinput support and the corresponding device files. On most distributions the evdev and uinput modules should be available, but /dev/input/event? and /dev/misc/uinput may need to be created - check. At the time of writing, uinput can be created like this
# mknod /dev/misc/uinput c 10 223
while the event? files can be created like this
# i=0 ; while [ $i -lt 8 ] ; do mknod /dev/input$i 13 $[64+i] ; i=$[i+1] ; done
The /dev/MAKEDEV script or various hotplug subsystems may also create these with the correct incantations.
# make install
Joyevmouse needs to be invoked with the correct /dev/input/event? file as parameter. By default Joyevmouse will exit if the given device does not have the correct capabilities, so it should be possible to try it on each of the files in sequence. Joyevmouse will also print out the name of the input device - this should provide a clue. There may be ways of integrating it with various messy hotplug subsystems, but I lack the patience.
The below runs joyevmouse on the fourth input device
# joyevmouse /dev/input/event3
Once joyevmouse is running, move the joystick through its full range in both dimensions, then back to neutral and press the handbrake button (by default this is configured to be the base button). After that the system should be ready to use. Whenever the mouse pointer drifts in the neutral position press the handbrake button again. The system is adaptive and should stop the mouse cursor from drifting after a few handbrakes.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
