Contents

This source package contains:
  • libstmm-input-gtk-xi: library that implements a device manager that integrates into Gtk’s main event loop sending key events from multiple independent floating keyboard devices to listeners.
  • device-floater: simple gui application to safely float keyboard and pointer devices managed by X11 (XI2).
