we're currently trying to control multiple X pointers through XTest.
Moving them using XTestFakeDeviceMotionEvent works as expected; however,
sending a button event using XTestFakeDeviceButtonEvent doesn't.
In fact, the test program from  segfaults in XNextEvent
(xorg/lib/libX11/src/NextEvent.c, line 51). qelt (and therefore
dpy->head) doesn't point anywhere sensible, so is this perhaps an
Or can anybody give us a hint on what other methods to control the
extension pointers from an userspace program exist?
Many thanks, Yours, Florian
