Multi-Cursor Window Manager is a modified Unix window manager which provides multiple cursors. This allows multiple users to simultaneously interact with a Unix desktop environment.

Using a modified x2x client users can capture the keyboard and mouse input from their workstation and send to their personal cursor on a shared computer display. Multiple cursors are distinguished by different colors, and users can simultaneously interact with separate windows.

There are 7 uniquely colored cursors available. The current multi-cursor window manager is based on a modified version of IceWM 1.2.13

The multi-cursor window manager works by time-slicing the system cursor to provide the appearance of multiple independent cursors.

Compiling the Software:

To compile Ice Window Manager:

>cd icewm
>./configure --without-imlib
>make
>make install

Note: there is a preferences file in the icewm directory ("icewm/preferences"). Move this file to the installation preferences directory. It has some default choices that work well for multi-user interaction. Also, use the "nice" theme in IceWM.

To compile the x2x client:

>cd x2x-mp
>xmkmf
>make
