Emulating mouse in OSX

Recommended Posts

Like many others I use Flirc very successfully to control XBMC on my Mac Mini. However, I also sometimes want to control the Mini itself and for that I need to be able to move the cursor about the screen. Is there any way to make Flirc do this?

Not through flirc - there maybe some kind of accessibily software that could do that function but I'm not sure.

As flirc presents as a keyboard you will have to work from that level.

Pleasant regards,

Chris!

What are keyboard cursor keys? You've got things like arrows, cmd+tab, cmd+`, cmd+shift+g, or anything else you can do with a keyboard...

One thing you might try, although I'm not having luck finding it at the moment... I've seen an app that lets you use the IR remote that came with your mac to control the mouse cursor. You could set up a service that lunches that app with a single keypress, and if your remote supports learning or has an Apple profile, you could set it up so the arrow buttons on your remote control your mouse. I'll keep looking for that app.

Edit: This isn't the app I was using way back when, but it looks like it will accomplish the same thing described above...

I'm confused about what you're trying to do but can't. The arrow keys (and every other key on your keyboard) are easily programmable in both the flirc GUI and from the command line.

What have you tried so far? Is there a step we can help with?
