  • Turning a Keyboard into a Mouse with Libevdev

    I also enjoyed using https://github.com/rvaiya/warpd on my mac. But was hit with few bugs, where the pointer used to get stuck. Had to keep restarting. But still a nice program to ditch mouse.

    for something similar that works with anything even beyond your browser there's warpd. I haven't used it I just know it exists. If you're into custom keyboards QMK can send mouse movements from keypresses too.
  • Compiling Problem
    1 project | /r/openSUSE | 26 Mar 2023
    So I am trying to compile warpd, i followed and installed the dependencies, but when I make, it outputs wayland-client.h not found. Fair enough, I installed geckolinux TW Plasma, NVIDIA working fine, X11 session. I used "zypper se", it showed wayland is installed but nevermind; in the docs they have said that you can 'Set options' to only compile X11 binary. I want only that but I am just racking my brain where to insert 'DISABLE_WAYLAND' option. I know its a most basic and obvious setting but i come from arch where i fully relied on AUR for building so i zero compiling knowledge. I tried RTFM but idk what I have to find. I would be helpful if someone helps me here

    Hey there! You should definitely check out warpd. It's a modal keyboard-driven pointer manipulation program that can help you control the pointer on your screen using just your keyboard.

    warpd avoided me spending a lot of time going from the keyboard to the mouse,for simple point and clicks. Honestly it is super useful.

  • Ask HN: What's the best way to control a cursor from the keyboard on macOS?
    3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Nov 2022
    I'd like to minimize my need for a mouse but there are some tasks which are just so much simpler with a cursor. I do have some mouse keys setup with Karabiner so that holding "k" and pressing esdf moves the cursor, but I've found this difficult to get used to. I have a few different keys to modify the speed, but it just feels way too convoluted and effortful to to control the cursor this way.

    I've also tried warpd [1] but had some issues with it that turned me off to it.

    Curious to know if anyone here has had success with something else

    I actually wrote this after seeing https://github.com/rvaiya/warpd on HackerNews and saw multiple people lament that they'd like to be able to use that for Windows. You should definitely check that out!
