    Phoronix: Piper Has Turned Into A Very Competent Mouse Configuration UI For Linux

    Student developer Jente Hidske's work this summer on improving the Piper GTK3 user-interface for configuring gaming mice on Linxu via libratbag is now the latest example of a very successful Google Summer of Code (GSoC) project...

        Is the GUI tool tied to configuration mechanism?

        Or, does it set some reusable standards (and/or library, API) for mouse configuration, which could by adopted by different frontends using different widget toolkits in different desktop environments?

          It uses libratbag or something like that, it is developed by Peter Hutterer, a well know linux developer.

          Does anyone know if it will work on KDE like any other gtk app?

            keeping with linux tradition, this is just a GUI for GUI-agnostic backend you can find here https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag

            But afaik there should be no reason for this to not work as-is in KDE too, just like any other GTK application.

              No, it's a mouse configuration UI for GNOME. Does anybody know a mouse cfg GUI that's DE agnostic?

                  I really hope that they're going to support more mice ( or maybe something like driver auto-detect ) in the future

                    Nice! Nice and juicy!

                    GTK is looking very nice as of lately and it seems that Jente did a good job on the overall UX. Looks productive and in-line with the rest of the GNOME system.
