Suggestions (#3) - Allow absolute axis to map to an absolute mouse (#12) - Message List
What I'm thinking of here is the ir_ptr plugin. I'm fairly certain, seeing as it is apparently possible to use Wacom tablets under X, that it would be possible to create an absolute mouse device with the ir_ptr plugin. This would be great, as the pointer would then work as it does in the Wii, rather than forcing the user to sometimes push the arrow against the extremeties of the screen in order to access the opposite extremety. If this is already possible somehow, I appologise.
ir_ptr is an absolute mouse, it's just not a very good algorithm. Feel free to experiment with it and submit any improvements. I'm hoping to get to it soon.dsmith03/27/07 12:40:07 (6 years ago)
I plan to have a look at it at some point. Even if it is absolute, however, doesn't using tilde in the wminput config files convert that into relative mouse movement?Heavybell04/02/07 09:49:05 (6 years ago)
