SYNOPSIS

xmindpath [-dv] [-f dev]

DESCRIPTION

xmindpath reads signal sent from MindPath PocketPoint device via serial port, and translate that into X11 event.

PocketPoint is a laser pointer, with three remote control keys. Three keys are right arrow, left arrow and "f/x" key. Keypress will be transmitted as 1200bps IrDA signal, which can be parsed by your computer. xmindpath parses the IrDA input signal, and maps the keypress as follows:
right arrow
  Mouse button 1 (leftmost mouse button). This key will be interpreted by mgp(1) as "proceed page" request.
left arrow
  Mouse button 3 (rightmost mouse button). This key will be interpreted by mgp(1) as "go back one page" request.
f/x key
  Currently mouse button 2 (middle mouse button) is mapped to this key. However, this will be changed in the near future.

To perform remote-controlled presentation, invoke xmindpath simultaneously with mgp(1) ( maybe from other terminal window ).

If you specify dev after -f , the specified device will be used as serial port. With -v , xmindpath will generate more messages. -d option is provided just for debugging sessions.

RETURN VALUES

The program exits with 0 on success, non-zero on failures.

HISTORY

The xmindpath command was implemented by Jun-ichiro Itoh <itojun@itojun.org>.

This program derives most of its X11 related code from twiddler driver.

BUGS

Keycode for "f/x" key should be configurable. BSDI gettyd(8) support would be desirable.
