XWii Publisher's description
from Nicholas Watts
XWii is a driver application built on top of the Wiiuse library.
XWii is a driver application built on top of the Wiiuse library .It interprets signals from the Nintendo Wii Remote into X11 keyboard and mouse input, allowing you to control all the programs on your computer with the wiimote.
What you need to get started:
* A bluetooth adapter that works under linux.
* A Wii Remote (obviously).
What features of the Wii Remote are supported?
* Supports all buttons on Wii Remote, Nunchuk, Classic Controller and Wii Guitar Hero 3 Controller
* Map to keyboard keys (single or multiple, eg. Alt+F4), or map to system commands (external programs, scripts, etc.)
* Supports mapping Classic Controller, Nunchuk and Guitar Controller joystick axes as keyboard keys (even the Guitar ControllerвЂ™s whammy bar!).
* Supports controlling mouse with Wii Remote accelerometers (tilt sensors).
* Supports controlling the mouse via the Wii RemoteвЂ™s Infra-Red pointing ability (requires Wii Sensor Bar or other dual Infra-Red light source).
* Supports turning on the Wii remote LEDs
* XWii now functions as a daemon, it will wait indefinately for a
wiimote connection and you can disconnect and reconnect as much as you
What's New in This Release:fix a nasty bug in disconnect-reconnect functionality

. You need a Linux-compatible bluetooth dongle or similar device (my belkin USB dongle works great).
. You obviously need a Wii Remote.
