"Unclutter runs in the background of an X11 session and after a specified period of inactivity hides the cursor from display. When the cursor is moved its display is restored. Users may specify specific windows to be ignored by unclutter."

I have built unclutter for both
32bit and 64bit.

I'd really like to get some feedback from the 64bit platform if this works as intended.

Thanks buddy, but it seems it's not in the repos yet...

Code: [Select]
macondo:$ sli unclutter
Reading Package Lists...Done
No such package: unclutter

Have not seen that command used before? Not on my system.


Here is my command line output.
Code: [Select]
ken:$ slapt-get --search unclutter
unclutter-1.09-i586-1vl70 [inst=no]: unclutter (Hides cursor when not in use.)

Need to have testing repository enabled, maybe?

It's just and alias in my .bashrc (i'm lazy)
Code: [Select]
macondo:$ cat .bashrc
# .bashrc
# sourced by BASH everytime it start
## These should be set by /etc/profile
## But sometime, bash missed them. So here is the push
export PATH="/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/opt/bin:/usr/X11/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
# Set various environment variables
for SH in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do
           . $SH
done
#use custom keymap
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

## Set fancy colors
eval `dircolors -b`

## Set this for your first choice
export BROWSER=firefox
export EXPLORER=pcmanmfm-mod
#export NETWORK_EXPLORER=konqueror
#export AUDIO_PLAYER=xmms
#export VIDEO_PLAYER=gxine
export DISPLAY=$DISPLAY

# This line was appended by KDE
# Make sure our customised gtkrc file is loaded.
export GTK2_RC_FILES=$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0

alias x="startx"
alias slu="sudo slapt-get -u"
alias sli="sudo slapt-get -i"

export EDITOR=nano
export PAGER=less

Hi, i uncommented the testing repo and everything went fine with unclutter and ratpoison (both 32 bits).
I'm configuring rp at the moment :)
