3. DESCRIPTION

mousetweaks is a daemon that provides various mouse features for the GNOME desktop. It depends on the Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface (AT-SPI).

4. OPTIONS

--enable-dwell

    Automatically perform mouse clicks without using a physical button.

--enable-secondary

    Trigger the secondary mouse button when the primary mouse button is held down for a specified amount of time.

--dwell-time=FLOAT

    Time to keep the pointer motionless before a dwell click is performed. Range: 0.2 - 3.0 seconds.

--secondary-time=FLOAT

    Time to hold the primary mouse button before a simulated secondary click is performed. Range: 0.5 - 3.0 seconds.

-m, --dwell-mode=STRING

    Select a dwelling mode. Available arguments are: window, gesture

s WINDOW Select the active click type from a window or a panel applet.

s GESTURE Perform clicks by moving in different directions after the cursor changes its shape.

-c, --show-ctw

    Show the click-type window. Only useful in combination with dwell-mode=window.

-x, --ctw-x=INT

    X Position of the click-type window on screen.

-y, --ctw-y=INT

    Y Position of the click-type window on screen.

-t, --threshold=INT

    Ignore small pointer movements. Range 0 - 30 pixels.

-s, --shutdown

    Stop the mousetweaks daemon.

--disable-animation

    Disable cursor animations. The animation shows the timer progress for dwell clicks and secondary clicks as cursor overlay.

--daemonize
