vga_setmousesupport(3) enable mouse support


#include <vga.h>

void vga_setmousesupport(int stat);


Set mouse support; 0 disables (default), 1 enabled. If enabled, the mouse is set up for screen resolution after a mode set and you can use the various mouse_ functions. You can also use mouse_init(3) the mouse in more flexibility. However, usually this is not the deal of the application. The mouse is configured in /etc/vga/libvga.config and usually the application will just want to use that.

The mousetest(6), eventtest(6), and spin(6) demos make use of the mouse functions.

It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer <[email protected]>.

Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author and will happily accept any additions or corrections to this first version of the svgalib manual.
