Mousetweaks is a new accessibility software whose development started
as a GSoC 2007 for Ubuntu.
In the meantime, it has been accepted as a new module for GNOME 2.22
and the gui of mousetweaks has been splitted from the mousetweaks
module and turned into the accessibility tab of the mouse control
panel. (You can see it if you are running the current development
version of hardy.)
The accessibility tab of the mouse control panel is useless without
the mousetweaks module that contains the daemon that does the real
(If a user wants to start a feature provided by the mouse
accessibility tab without the mousetweaks module being installed, a
dialog appears telling him to install mousetweaks.)
Though the mousetweaks module installs a daemon (and two applets),
the daemon only runs if the user activates one of its features. In
other words, there is no additional daemon running in the system if
the user does not need the features provided by mousetweaks.
(By cli, it is possible to start the daemon without activating a
feature and let it run idle; and it only runs until logout. The plan
is to change that behavior to make it only run when the user
activates one of its features; as it is the case when it is
controlled by gui.)
The mousetweaks module passed revu a few days ago and is now in the
build queue for the universe archive:
The next step will be the inclusion of mousetweaks into main.
Thanks in advance for any comment concerning the inclusion of
mousetweaks into main.
