NAME

gpmconfig - a tool for configuring gpm.  

SYNTAX

gpmconfig [ --norestart ]  

VERSION

This man page documents gpmconfig version 1.00.  

DESCRIPTION

gpmconfig is a tool to configure gpm(1). It allows configuration of four things: mouse type, the device to use, responsiveness and any additional arguments to be passed to gpm. You will be offered the chance to test the configuration.

gpmconfig offers you the chance to run the gpm-mouse-test program which is designed to help you determine the type of your mouse and which device it attaches to.  

OPTIONS

--norestart
Don't restart gpm when configuration has finished.
 

FILES

gpmconfig reads and writes the configuration from /etc/gpm.conf. This file is usually created when the gpm package is installed for the first time. /etc/init.d/gpm reads the configuration from /etc/gpm.conf.  

DIAGNOSTICS

None.  

BUGS

There is no option to configure gpm's -l option, other than by using the append string.
