Slackware-current missing rc.gpm


Look here
Code:
bash-4.4$ cat /var/log/packages/gpm-1.20.7-x86_64-7 | grep rc
etc/rc.d/
bash-4.4$
and here
Code:
bash-4.4$ cat /etc/rc.d/rc.M | grep rc.gpm
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm ]; then
  /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm start
At moment I was thinking I accidentally removed script, but then I looked at package description for gpm and found that there is no at all rc.gpm. Am I missing something?

rc.gpm is not shipped in a package but written by the script /var/log/setup/setup.mouse if the user wants to be able to copy and paste with the mouse on the console, during installation.

After installation you can run this script through pkgtool or execute it directly.
