NAME

gpm-mouse-test - a tool for determining mouse type and device it's attached to.

SYNTAX

gpm-mouse-test [ device ... ]

DESCRIPTION

This experimental and incomplete application tries to help in detecting which protocol does your mouse speak. It is able to detect MouseMan devices, and to choose between `-t ms' (three-buttons aware) and `-t bare' old two-buttons-only serial mice.
 

BUGS

I know the application is buggy, but I only own one mouse device. If you are interested in this application, just call me and awake me from my laziness.
 

OPTIONS

device
[ device ... ]
Check this device for a mouse. If no devices are listed, gpm-mouse-test will try all possible devices.
