Version: 1.0Multi-Cursor Window Manager is a modified Unix window manager which provides multiple cursors. This allows multiple users to simultaneously interact with a Unix desktop environment.
Operating System: Linux
Using a modified x2x client users can capture the keyboard and mouse input from their workstation and send to their personal cursor on a shared computer display. Multiple cursors are distinguished by different colors, and users can simultaneously interact with separate windows.
There are 7 uniquely colored cursors available. The current multi-cursor window manager is based on a modified version of IceWM 1.2.13
The multi-cursor window manager works by time-slicing the system cursor to provide the appearance of multiple independent cursors.
