Mouse Cursor/pointer
« on: January 14, 2006, 09:37:37 am »
Hi,

Is there a way to use the arrow keys (combined with another key) to move the cursor around ?
It's possible on SHARP ROM using "Input-Helper".
It's annoying to use the stylus.

I think it's possible by editing /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml and /etc/x11/kb/akita.xmodmap
but I don't know the commands either for moving up/down/left/right or tapping on the screen or how to set the speed of motion, ...

Thanks for any help.

It's easy if you use FVWM.  
Something like this in your .fvwm2rc
Code: [Select]
Key Left    A    MC    CursorMove -1 0
Key Right    A    MC    CursorMove +1 +0
Key Up  A    MC    CursorMove +0   -1
Key Down    A    MC    CursorMove +0   +1

Couldn't tell you about the *box window managers, I never tried.

Indeed it seems easy using FVWM but unfortunately I am not.

Thanks anyway.

I would also like to be able to do this in the default window manager of pdaxrom.

So, no one has a solution for this ?
Does it require too much work using the default window manager and matchbox ?
I think it would be a unvaluable feature.
Hope someone will take the plunge.

I put a Feature Request in the bug tracker on PdaXrom.org (bug # 358)

Thanks for the info.
However with my poor knowledge it doesn't help me much.
