DESCRIPTIONThe xwiishow tool, when called without arguments, shows a short usage information. If the list parameter is given, it lists all connected Wii Remotes. Each connected Wii Remote is given a number. If you pass this number to xwiishow then this device is opened and the UI shows a graphical representation of the device. Instead of passing this number you can also pass an absolute path to the device-root in the sysfs directory.
In the ncurses-based interface you can press 'q' to quit the application, 'r' to toggle the rumble motor and 'a' to toggle the accelerometer. See the xwiishow help text for a more comprehensive list of shortcuts.
EXAMPLES$ xwiishow list
No device path given. Listing devices:
Found device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb3/3-2/3-2:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:11/0005:057E:0306.0001
End of device list
$ xwiishow /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb3/3-2/3-2:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:11/0005:057E:0306.0001
<ncurses based interface>
BUGSThis tool is quite incomplete. It does not support all interfaces that are provided by the wiimote kernel driver. However, it provides enough functionality to test whether a Wii Remote is detected properly.
The tool reads the input devices directly so you might need root rights to properly access the Wii Remote.
