Re: Re: controlling X's mouse pointerby schweini (Friar)
|on Oct 01, 2002 at 10:50 UTC||Need Help??|
XEvent seems to be read-only...i tried WarpPointer from X11::Protocol, but couldn't get it to work :-(
(which is probably my fault)
i'm looking for something like this because i just had the dumbest idea of all times: make a "Minority Report"-like HID in perl! (I'd post it as a "cool use", if i could somehow get that darn pointer to move).
it's actually quite simple (it's more a proof-of-concept thing than something actually usable), and controlling some LEDs with in-the-air-hand-movement (well...cigarette movement right now) simply feels groovy. (4 quadrants control the combination of LEDs connected to my parallel port that are supposed to light up)
now all i need is a &putPointerToCoordinates(x,y) and a &clickAtCurrentCoordinates()....but how?
(i'm a c-analphabetic, BTW)
(update: fixed spelling. ain't caffeine great?)
