amorad [options]


Amora is an application that enables you to control your PC desktop using a cellphone. It uses bluetooth to send mouse and keyboard events to the graphical session. With it you can control your slides in, movies or any other application. Amora also has a screenshot feature, where you can see a thumbnail in the cellphone screen of the currently focused window in your desktop.

The server (amorad) is written in C using Xlib and XTest to send events for X session and the POSIX socket API for I/O. It must be started by the user, inside a valid X session.
