GMouseTool is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). The program tracks your mouse movements and when
you stop the mouse over any object a click is sent.
It is possible to configure the GMouseTool to send left, right and double-clicks
to any application. You can use GMouseTool to drag-and-drop objects too.
GMouseTool is developed using GTK+ and is under the GPL license. As You may
have noticed this page is based on GTK+'s home page.
GMouseTool is a work in progress and there are too may things to be done. So, if
you have any
to make, please report it.
I promise to answer your questions, enhancement requests and bug reports as
quickly as I can.
Please remember that GMouseTool is my hobby, not my "day job," and I have
spouse, family and tendonitis. Thus, I ask your patience if I take
a few days to respond.
