Mouse emulator app


Hi On Windows I had a program called mousemulator to let me move a virtual mouse with the numpad keys. I am on Ubuntu 9.04 but their forum cannot help. Does anyone know of an app that does this? Mousemulator does not work under Wine..

Thanks

In KDE, just do : <Alt + F12> , to use arrow keys for cursor.

In GNOME ( goggle .. gnome mouse key .. )

Not so easy to find the function in Gnome ...

Thanks. In the Gnome 2.26 that comes with Ubuntu 9.04 , it's in System > Preferences > Keyboard. No docs I could find on the actual keys to use, so took me a long time to figure that right click needs . followed by 0.
