gpm, X-window and imwheel support in startup scripts
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I added variables to /etc/sysconfig/mouse to start gpm repeater mode.
There is arguments for imwheel support too. I correct startup scripts
for gpm and X-window.
I use gpm in repeater mode for X-window and imwheel with patch for gpm
(it's on my site too). It's applicable to gpm-1.18.
some people do not like gpm to be in repeater mode, so we won't make this
standard. Please continue to supply it as a patch for those who feel it is
What linux really needs is a standard /dev/mouse that that would be the same for
everything, but we don't have that right now.
