Gizmo Daemon
A program to control a computer in any way based on events from input devices.

Gizmo Daemon is a program for controlling your computer based on events from input devices. It has built-in support for all Linux input devices, including keyboards with special keys, joysticks, remotes, dials, and more. It lets you control applications, launch programs, change the system volume, switch desktops, and directly control XMMS/BMP. It has special support for the Griffin PowerMate USB Dial, allowing certain events to be visualized on the PowerMate's LED (such as XMMS/BMP sound output, CPU usage, etc.). It features support for RF Remotes such as the ATI X10 Remote, allowing it to have per-application key mappings and configurable sensitivity settings (handy for MythTV users). It also has XOSD support for nifty (TV-friendly) on-screen displays.
