Subject: O: mouseemu -- Emulate mouse buttons and mouse wheel
Date: Wed, 20 Jul 2011 23:16:49 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the mouseemu package.

The package description is:
 Mouseemu is a daemon to emulate mouse buttons on trackpads
 with only one button. It lets you:
  - emulate middle and right click
  - emulate mouse wheel
  - block trackpad while typing
 .
 It was initially developed for Apple PowerBooks
 and iBooks, but it may be useful on other architectures
 as well.
 .
 This program only works when booting a 2.6 kernel because
 it uses the new uinput interface to emulate the mouse.

Please don't. It is the only way I know of to make the buttons work.

Hi,

I intend on adopting mouseemu and moving its maintenance under the newly
created pkg-mactel team.

Kind regards, Thibaut.

Hi,

I am re-orphaning mouseemu. I believe it is not useful anymore for
recent hardware as the synaptics driver can do a better job at
emulating three buttons. The benefit of keeping it in the archive to
enable middle or right click on decade old laptops does not strike me.

I have been using it for a while to trap the brightness up/down
buttons on my laptop and send them to pommed, but this is fixed
directly in pommed (in git) now.

If someone wants to adopt this package, I suggest putting it in team
maintenance in the pkg-mactel team. It would need to be updated. Look
at the Ubuntu version, which fixes many of the bugs. It doesn't fix
this one, though:
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=708389

If this package is not adopted in the near future, I'll ask for its
removal later this year.

Kind regards, Thibaut.
