WMeyes 1.2

WMeyes is a pretty simple application: it sits in the WindowMaker dock, and a pair of eyes track your cursor.
WMeyes is a pretty simple application: it sits in the WindowMaker dock, and a pair of eyes track your cursor.

Actually, the program should work in all window managers, but then you don't have a dock to sit it in, in which case you might as well use xeyes.

What's New in This Release:

I added changes based upon a patch I found at http://www.shiratori.riec.tohoku.ac.jp/~jir/linux/products/wmeyes/index-e.html which allows one to click upon the eyes and run a program.

Your command will be fed directly to the shell, so that you can use shell metacharacters or what have you, although you will probably need to escape them. Note that wmeyes does not automatically background the program, so you will probably want to background it yourself.

For example:

# run an xmag whenever the eyes are clicked on
wmeyes -w -e 'xmag &'
# show the number of lines with the word "foo" in them in your mail spool
wmeyes -e 'xmessage `grep -w foo $MAIL | wc -l` &'
# make wmeyes stop working until you have finished with a shell
wmeyes -e xterm
# my personal favorite: make the screen blank when the eyes are clicked on
wmeyes -e 'xset dpms force off'

I also added support for multiple displays at once. Use -d, -display, or --display as many times as you like.
