changelog

Mousetweaks provides mouse accessibility enhancements for the GNOME desktop. These enhancements are:

1. It offers a way to perform the various clicks without using any hardware button.

2. It allows users to perform a right click by doing a click&hold of the left mousebutton. (For a left-handed mouse user, the terms left and right have to be inverted.)

3. It provides an applet that the user can install on a panel. This applet creates an area on the panel into which the pointer can be captured until the user releases it with a predefined button and modifier combination.

The options can be accessed through the Accessibility tab of the Mouse Preferences of Gnome-Control-Center or through command-line switches.
