input-linux-mouse - Direct mouse input
input-linux-mouse: [<mousetype>] [,<file>] [,[b<bauds>][r<rts>][d<dtr>]]
This input opens a file (usually a device file or pipe) and reads mouse
protocol data from it.
Indicates what type of mouse is attached. The following types
o ms, Microsoft : Two button Microsoft compatible mice.
o ms3, IntelliMouse, mman+ : Serial Intellimouse or
compatible. Supports four buttons for mice like the Logitech
o MouseSystems, msc : MouseSystems compatible (used in most
o Logitech, logi : Used in older Logitech serial mice.
o mm, MMSeries : MM series mice.
o Sun : Sun mice. The protocol is the same as 'msc' protocol
except it used only 3 bytes per packet.
o MouseMan, mman : MouseMan protocol.
o BusMouse, bm : Non-PS/2 busmice.
o LinuxUSB, lnxusb : IMPS2 that doesn't choke on USB (no init
o ps2, PS/2 : PS/2 mice (most non-serial mice use this
o imps2, IMPS/2 : PS/2 IntelliMouse and compatible (not USB,
see lnxusb for that.)
o mmanps2, MouseManPlusPS/2 : PS/2 Logitech MouseMan+ and
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
file The file to read mouse protocol data from; defaults to
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.
o Generates evPtr* events.
~/.ggi/input/linux-mouse and $sysconfdir/ggi/input/linux-mouse consists
of the following entries:
where mousetype and file has the same semantics as the invocation
options of the same names.
