Presenting programs with Gromit
Welcome to the homepage of Gromit (GRaphics Over
MIscellaneous Things). Gromit enables you to make annotations
on your screen.
When making presentations of the Gimp I found myself often moving the
mousepointer around the point of interest until hopefully everybody
noticed it. This annoyed me, since it is a very vague way to highlight
something. I dreamed of a small programm which allows me to simply draw
on the screen, ignoring any window-borders.
Gromit is a first implementation of this program.
Gromit is XInput-Aware (see the XInput-Howto). So if you have a graphics
tablet you can (depending on its capabilities with XFree86) draw lines
with different strength and erase things with the other side of your pen.
You can configure multiple XInput-Devices - it is easy to use one pen with a
red ink and another Pen with blue ink. The Syntax of the configuration
language and additional useage information is described in the README.
