I started a mouse driver that doesn't require X. I works nicely, and is easily extendable.
I also retains compatability with older applications...
(It's so flexible that it can be difficult to get the hang of, even though it is somewhat documented.)
If you are a brave soul, and can handle a bit of mouse routing :) go grab JAM at:
better yet, get the CVS...it contains support for the full intellimouse explorer (2 axis plus 1 wheel and 5 buttons)
JAM already conatins support for many mice, and more can easily be added.
JAM will also have an I/O based on unix sockets and TCP/IP, meaning your program can directly access the mouse and learn of the configuration of it.
Things like number of Axis, buttons, and wheels will be easy to learn by the application. making full use of every mouse a possibility...
What impact this has on the Linux SDL mouse handling is up to you :) perhaps a patch will be nice to have...
JAM also pairs up with imwheel (CVS please) to support actions for the thumb buttons that you can assign...
IMWheel is at:
the imwheel in CVS is pretty much going to be a final version (1.0)
if anyone wants to get involved with supporting either JAM or IMWheel, email me or catch me on IRC:
irc.openprojects.net #imwheel (I'm LIM)
