XevdevServer is a program that uses the Linux evdev interface to capture events from specific mouse and keyboard devices.
XevdevServer is a program that uses the Linux evdev interface to capture events from specific mouse and keyboard devices.

It then translates these events and sends them to an X display using the XTEST extension. It can be helpful in a multi-seat X configuration.

Special keys

I don't know if this will work in the same way on other keyboard types, but on mine, the following special combinations work:

- Windows key + pause key: execute 'telinit 3'. This may be useful if you're having some X-windows related problems.
- Windows key + keypad plus key: if multiple displays were specified to send events to, this selects the next display as the active one, allowing you to cycle through them.

What's New in This Release:

· This is a complete rewrite of the program.
· The most important change is that you can now use a config file to map Linux evdev codes onto X keycodes.
· You can also specify custom actions for certain key combinations in the config file.
