Re: Hands Free Mouse Issues

Hi Henrik,

There are two head-mice that present themselves as USB mice: the Madentec Tracker (see and Origin Systems HeadMouse (see Both cost roughly $1,000.


It would be great to have these inexpensive options supported on UNIX (anyone wanna writer a driver?), but that isn't today.

I agree with Peter that those are the devices that are known to work, but it would be very nice to get the SmartNav or similar working since it's so affordable. Perhaps I should get one and challenge the Ubuntu community to write a driver ...

Or perhaps a Google Summer of Code accessibility project?
