linux default iconIMWheel Publisher's description

IMWheel is a daemon for X11, which watches for mouse wheel actions and outputs them as keypresses.

IMWheel is a daemon for X11, which watches for mouse wheel actions and outputs them as keypresses.

This is a not so short little ditty that does the simple conversion of mouse button presses into key presses. By grabbing only the 4th and 5th mouse buttons the program is able to receive input from the Intellimouse series mice.

There is also a modified version of gpm included that has, already, support for the Intellimouse, and I added a wheel fifo. The user library may also be used, although this may need to be debugged. See the gpm section below for more.

The wheel button can always be used as middle button, this program does not affect how the XServer, nor GPM, react towards it. A mouse with a wheel button is a 3 button mouse, and should be configured as such!


The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for various system-dependent variables used during compilation.

It uses those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package. It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent definitions.

Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, a file `config.cache' that saves the results of its tests to speed up
reconfiguring, and a file `config.log' containing compiler output (useful mainly for debugging `configure').

If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can be considered for the next release.

If at some point `config.cache' contains results you don't want to keep, you may remove or edit it.

The file `configure.in' is used to create `configure' by a program called `autoconf'. You only need `configure.in' if you want to change it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version of `autoconf'.

The simplest way to compile this package is:

1. `cd' to the direct
