Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-mousetrap

I try to use gnome-Mousetrap in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

I installed the "mousetrap" package (which is in the Ubuntu repository).

A launcher appears in the Applications->Accessibility menu, but it does not
work (python error is shown in the terminal).

So I edit the /usr/bin/mousetrap file, and in this file I change the occurency
of "python2.5" by "python".

Again an error.

So I launch the program with "sudo mousetrap", and this time it works !

But I can not use it (or I don't know how), I don't see any webcam display, nor
menu to set it.

I read in the Ubuntu-fr wiki that to solve this problem i had to do:
- edit /usr/share/pyshared/mouseTrap/ocvfw.py , and change l.200 "if not
status[counter]:" into if not status or not status[counter]:
- comment line 270 : #self.img.origin = frame.origin

.. but this does not improve anything for me.

Please help !

same problème but, the solve not working on ubuntu 10.10..

On Ubuntu Lucid it doesn't work. I get in the terminal (in dutch):
/usr/bin/mousetrap: regel 149: /usr/bin/python2.5: Bestand of map bestaat niet

I think in 10.04 the Python version is 2.6.

Isn't this easy to fix by reffering to python 2.6 instead of 2.5?

Update:
The package is just old...

I've removed moustrap and used these websites to install moustrap again:
http://live.gnome.org/MouseTrap/Installation
and
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8864117 point 18.

I didn't have to edit the moustrap script and the location of moustrap was /usr/local/bin/mousetrap

It didn't work very well. Moustrap in combination with Dasher made moustrap hang for short periodes of time so my mouse wasn't controllable.

Update:

Correction: This version of mousetrap works well as long as you don't go outside the screen with the mousepointer, than moustrap hangs.

I work on Ubuntu 10.04 i386

/usr/local/bin/mousetrap -v gives:
Xlib.protocol.request.QueryExtension
0.4

hope this helps...
