If a USB mouse is declared the core pointer, X won't come up without it, AllowMouseOpenFail notwithstanding. If it has SendCoreEvents set, xmodmap pointer = ... will no longer remap its buttons, as it only works on the primary pointer. xmootmap is a bare bones command line tool that lets you remap buttons on secondary pointers, and is aimed at laptop users with funky mice. Intended use is mostly from ~/.xinitrc.

Non sequitur. Just because e17 has not been
released yet, e16 is not vaporware. It's not
even abandonware. As for e17, e16 is so cool
that I have a hard time thinking of something
that e17 could do better, from a user's perspective.
(From a design and development perspective, e17
is interesting however.) Even if e17 never gets there,
e16 is still one of the coolest WMs around -- many
of its competitors sport a lot of interesting features
these days, but e16 still seems to have the largest
number of cool themes. Without themes, fancypants
WMs are nothing, so three cheers to the artists out

evas is pretty cool if you use it right.

enlightenment 17 can and could be built,
even if some of the tools and libs cannot
always be built. The resulting binaries will
be of varying stability, depending on what
is being worked on at that time.
The rub is that "can be built" sometimes
includes using a trick here and there.
If you have the "skills of a developer",
it will be obvious what these tricks are,
and working the magic won't take more
than a couple of minutes. If you aren't,
then what you could get out of CVS
is not for you yet. Please excuse us for
wanting to build something to install
before building the installer. : )

Once released, people will expect support for it.
e17 is a moving target for now, so it would be difficult
to provide support for it, especially with a very small

Claims? What claims?
