PROGRAM:

NAME


Gromit-MPX - Presentation helper to make annotations on screen

SYNOPSIS


gromit-mpx [options]

DESCRIPTION


Gromit-MPX enables you to make multi-pointer annotations on your screen. It can run in the
background and be activated on demand to let you draw over all your currently running
applications. The drawing will stay on screen as long as you want, you can continue to use
your applications while the drawing is visible.
Gromit-MPX is XInput-Aware, so if you have a graphic tablet you can draw lines with
different strength, colour, erase things, etc.
Since you typically want to use the program you are demonstrating and highlighting
something is a short interruption of you workflow, Gromit-MPX is activated by either a
hotkey or a repeated invocation of Gromit-MPX (the latter can e.g. used by other
applications or your windowmanager).

KEYBOARD CONTROL


By default, Gromit-MPX grabs the "Pause" key, making it unavailable to other applications.
(The use of "Pause" is Debian-specific: the upstream package uses "F9". The hotkey can be
changed using the "--key" option.) The available shortcuts are:

Pause toggle painting

SHIFT-Pause
clear screen

CTRL-Pause
toggle visibility

ALT-Pause
quit Gromit-MPX

OPTIONS (STARTUP)


A short summary of the available commandline arguments for invoking Gromit-MPX, see below
for the options to control an already running Gromit-MPX process:

-a, --active
start Gromit-MPX and immediately activate it.

-k <keysym>, --key <keysym>
will change the key used to grab the mouse. <keysym> can e.g. be "F9", "F12",
"Control_R" or "Print". To determine the keysym for different keys you can use the
xev(1) command. You can specify "none" to prevent Gromit-MPX from grabbing a key.

-K <keycode>, --keycode <keycode>
will change the key used to grab the mouse. Under rare circumstances identifying
the key with the keysym can fail. You can then use the keycode to specify the key
uniquely. To determine the keycode for different keys you can use the xev(1)
command.

-u <keysym>, --undo-key <keysym>
will change the key used to undo/redo strokes. <keysym> can e.g. be "F9", "F12",
"Control_R" or "Print". To determine the keysym for different keys you can use the
xev(1) command. You can specify "none" to prevent Gromit-MPX from grabbing a key.

-U <keycode>, --undo-keycode <keycode>
will change the key used to undo/redo strokes. Under rare circumstances identifying
the key with the keysym can fail. You can then use the keycode to specify the key
uniquely. To determine the keycode for different keys you can use the xev(1)
command.

-d, --debug
gives some debug output.

OPTIONS (CONTROL)


A sort summary of the available commandline arguments to control an already running
Gromit-MPX process, see above for the options available to start Gromit-MPX.

-t, --toggle
will toggle the grabbing of the cursor.

-v, --visibility
will toggle the visibility of the window.

-c, --clear
will clear the screen.

-z, --undo
