sudo apt-get install wminput wmgui lswm
2. add the following line to /etc/modules
4. Get the address of the wiimote, press the 1 and 2 buttons on the wiimote when asked. I had to do this twice before getting a response.
5. Use the following command to discover the wiimote and start using it as a mouse. NB: Press 1 +2 on the wiimote when it asks, and substitute your address from the command above. Once the steps above have been completed once this will be the only command you will need.
sudo wminput xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
That’s it! You should now have mouse control with your wiimote. Use tilt for left and right and up and down for, well, up and down.
The + pad will also act as scroll in web browsers etc.
Not terribly useful, but kind of fun to try. The tilt for L+R isn’t great, I guess that’s what the bar on top of the TV is for.
