Using xorg without a mouse

I always like it when I learn something new. Particularly when I read something one the web which turn out to work.

I wanted to find a way to move the mouse cursor without a mouse. I can actually do this with my lirc based remote but I have a new wireless keyboard for my linux 'TV' and I wanted to have a way to use that too.

A google search turned up an interesting page which suggested the X.org has this functionality built in and to my surprise it worked. It even had instructions for keyboards without a numeric keypad (like mine). Apparently "MouseKeys" and "PlotMode" has always been a feature in X.org and XFree86.

I must be in PlotMode at the moment which is quite slow. I will have to practice enabling Accelerated mode <Fn><Alt><Shift><Num Lock> should be the key I need.

  3. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1 . This will switch you to a different tty. After logging in on this you can run commands as normal. Any F key under 6 will do.

  6. I had to write an essay on the Russian language. The teacher is strict, picking on every little detail. I needed guys who could meet all the requirements of my angry and strict teacher. Looking around the internet, I found essaypro reviews. It didn't take long to register. Everything is clear and convenient. After I left all my requirements for the order, I got a fairly quick response and clarified some specifications for the essay. This was unexpected, as usually, as I thought, here they just write works conveyor belt, but it turns out that they are really invested in each work. As a result, the work was great, I recommend it!
