Compiz Fusion, Multi-Pointer X, & Input Redirection
Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 1 November 2008 at 11:08 AM EDT. Add A Comment
Back in July we talked about Compiz support for MPX. MPX, or Multi-Pointer X, is the technology now in the mainline X Server for the X Server 1.6 release that allows multiple pointers to function independently on a single system. Today a set of patches were pushed into a Compiz Fusion git repository that allow all Compiz plug-ins to work nicely with all input devices, fixes for Input Redirection, and Input Redirection support in shift, scale, freewins, shelf, and ring. More on this work can be read in this blog post.
