NAME

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

SYNTAX

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, mouse-test will try all possible devices.
