Hi to all,
I have installed some applications to optimize the mouse use, one of them wayV.
Before installation I type wayv in my console and they shows me:
$ wayV version 0.3
and freeze there, no responds to any mouse or keyboard command...
in others words.. not works...
Looking the code I only con see the program stops in line:
But not recover any event...
I have seen similar behavior in the programs GOK and Dasher.
The first one not respond when I click on buttons,
and Dasher cant write in other windows...
Ubuntu 6.10 64bits, Generic Mouse. On AMD64.
Here is a mail exchange whit Mike Bennett, wayV author:
They will be looking at the problem around Christmas.
If you can give us any help would be great.

Thanks for you response!
Using a managed window the program have the same behavior...
Starting them as root too...
Using Compiz Fusion wayV shows that error:
wayV version 0.3
X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private
Major opcode of failed request: 28 (X_GrabButton)
Serial number of failed request: 17
Current serial number in output stream: 20
You can see some Bugs Reports on this 'little' link whit more

Ok - that sounds like wayV is getting blocked from watching for
keyboard and mouse events. This could be because of a change in X
windows security model or another application, such as a window
manager, has grabbed an event resource that wayV wants. IIRC the
XTest extension may be required for some event grabs BUT its been a
long while since I looked at that part of the code.
Could you send me a copy of you wayv.conf file? Also what window
manager you are using?

Thats a good link for helping me understand the problem. Since its
always occurring in Drapper I should be able to reproduce the
problem. I'm really busy till the 21st of this month writing a
conference paper but after that I'll setup Drapper and see if I can
reproduce and fix the problem. I'll let you know how that goes. In
the meantime if you have any more luck tracing it down please let me

If you do please let them know I will be looking at the problem
around Christmas, and let me know if they have any insights.
