Skipper

http://home.freeuk.net/skipperproject/
Skipper has two parts. One runs outside the X Window System, takes control of all input devices, and provides highly user configurable processing of the inputs to convert whatever movements the person can make into one or two dimensional movements and clicks. The other part runs inside X, and provides highly user configurable on-screen menus of useful actions. The two parts communicate, to provide an environment where the usual GUI effectively runs inside another computer, which is specialised to the user's available movements. This provides full access to all legacy applications for people with as little as one detectable voluntary movement. Very detailed documentation for SuSE 7.1 and can run on a 100MHz PC.
