MOUSE DISABLE [REPACK]
I have extended Fábio Diniz's answer to a class which provides both a block() and an unblock() function which block (selectively) mouse/keyboard inputs. I also added a timeout functionality which (hopefully) addresses the annoyance of locking oneself out.
I just slightly modified the @Robert code and instead of the time I used external interrupt to close the program i.e. if you connect any external drive then the program gets close and your mouse and keyboard will be working perfectly.
However, this does not stop users from pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del on Windows. But you can run the script in an elevated command prompt, and the mouse and keyboard will still be disabled, even if they opened Task Manager using Ctrl+Alt+Delete, so there is no harm done (apparently there are way to actually prevent Ctrl+Alt+Delete, but do your own research for that)
You can use pyautogui to do this. Though I recommend adding keyboard for making a stopping key. First, you want to install pyautogui and keyboard.Please note: this only disables the mouse not the keyboard, that is a very bad idea.
Ok, but there is 2 ways to get out of this. pressing S, and also quickly moving the mouse to one of the corners of the screen (that is a pyautogui failsafe, but we can disable that). If you want to disable the failsafe, add this after the imports:
When you enable rocker gestures, you can navigate backwards and forwards through pages by rocking your fingers between the right and left mouse buttons. Simply click and hold one button, click the other, then release the first before releasing the second. With a little practice, you can speed through web pages with this gesture.
Web apps can now disable mouse acceleration when capturing pointer events.Nov 26, 2020 François Beaufort GitHubOn this page Using the APIRequest a pointer lockDisable mouse accelerationBrowser supportOperating system supportSampleHelpful linksAcknowledgementsAccelerated movement is an ergonomic feature when using a mouse or trackpad to move the pointer on screen. It allows precise movement by moving slowly while also allowing the pointer to cross the entire screen with a quick short motion. Specifically, for the same physical distance that you move the mouse, the pointer on screen travels further if the distance was traveled faster.Operating systems enable mouse acceleration by default. For some first-party perspective games, commonly first-person shooters (FPS), raw mouse input data is used to control camera rotation without an acceleration adjustment. The same physical motion, slow or fast, results in the same rotation. This results in a better gaming experience and higher accuracy according to professional gamers.Pointer motion control in Windows 10 settings.Starting in Chrome 88, web apps can switch back and forth between accelerated and non-accelerated mouse movement data thanks to the updated Pointer Lock API.Web-based gaming platforms such as Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now already use these new capabilities to please FPS gamers.Browser support chrome 37, Supported 37 firefox 50, Supported 50 edge 13, Supported 13 safari 10.1, Supported 10.1 SourceUsing the API #Request a pointer lock #A pointer lock is the canonical term for when a desktop application hides the pointer icon and interprets mouse motion for something else, e.g. looking around in a 3D world.The movementX and movementY attributes from the mousemove document events tell you how much the mouse pointer moved since the last move event. However, those are not updated when the pointer moves outside of the web page.
Capturing the mouse pointer (or requesting a pointer lock) allows you to not worry about the pointer moving outside anymore. This is especially useful for immersive web games. When the pointer is locked, all mouse events go to the target element of the pointer lock.Call requestPointerLock() on the target element to request a pointer lock, and listen to pointerlockchange and pointerlockerror events to monitor pointer lock changes.
Call requestPointerLock() with unadjustedMovement: true to disable OS-level adjustment for mouse acceleration, and access raw mouse input. This way, mouse movement data from mousemove events won't include mouse acceleration when the pointer is locked.Use the new returned promise from requestPointerLock() to know if the request was successful.
In this tutorial we will explain how to disable mouse acceleration in Windows 10 by turning off pointer precision. Mouse acceleration can hinder the ability to play games where you need precise aim (for example, First Person Shooters). Pointer precision, hidden in the control panel, causes your mouse to move not only based on movement, but on speed. Changing this option will make your mouse more accurate.
We have heard the feedback around users wanting to hide the mouse cursor in video recordings. Today there is no official support for hiding the mouse cursor; however, we do have a workaround via a regkey that may work for you until official support is in place.
Although the touchpad on an Asus laptop can be useful for clicking, scrolling and selecting content, it can be a nuisance if you're using an external wired or wireless mouse. If you're a business owner who prefers the convenience of a standard mouse to run day-to-day business operations, disabling the touchpad decreases the chances of accidentally tapping the device and making unwanted selections. The Asus touchpad can be disabled in a a variety of ways depending on the model you're using.
Relative to head: The pointer follows the direction in which you move your head (regardless of where your face is turned), similar to how you move a mouse. To stop the pointer, stop moving your head. For example, if you move your head left (even though your face is turned to the right), the pointer moves to the left.
To quickly enable or disable Mouse Keys or head pointer using the Accessibility Shortcuts panel, press Option-Command-F5 (or if your Mac or Magic Keyboard has Touch ID, quickly press Touch ID three times).
Mac OS X Snow Leopard Mouse Keys enables the user to move the pointer by pressing keys on the numeric keypad rather than via the mouse. This will benefit users who are unable to manipulate or have difficulty manipulating the mouse.
If desired, check the box labeled Press the Option key five times to turn Mouse Keys on or off. This will allow you to enable or disable Mouse Keys using the option key rather than via system preferences.
To turn off Mouse Keys, check the Off radio button in the Mouse Keys section of the Universal Access system preferences. If the options to enable or disable Mouse Keys via the option key was checked, pressing the option key five times will also turn off Mouse Keys.
Hi, i'm looking for the same thing.@JeanK like in @LarryPing question, i WANT to disable MY LOCAL mouse on the SERVER SIDE. i keep TV open on a monitor while watching client explaining problem . in another monitor i do other staff. and in the third also. so i don't want to move the mouse and accidentally , while passing over TV session, move the client mouse. I WANT TO WATCH ONLY and interfere only if i want to. with TV in full screen is impossible.
This tutorial will show you who to disable multitouch on Magic Mouse, and also how to re-enable multitouch on a Magic Mouse again if you change your mind and want the scrolling abilities back again.
Another option is to use a third party app like BetterTouchTool or MagicPrefs, which allows you to disable and enable specific gestures and Magic Mouse abilities through a little control panel like Mac app too.
I have a laptop with ubuntu installed on it and when I type, occasionally the touch pad mouse decides to randomly click or drag between some random coordinates on the screen, even when I try my hardest not to touch the damned thing. This has the effect of me typing code in the wrong places all the time, and it's getting really old because sometimes it introduces subtle irreversible bugs into my code.
I'm using QGIS 2.16.x and the mouse wheel preference to disable zooming does not seem to be available. I've tried locking the scale but when the magnifier function is enabled, the zoom function still responds to the mouse wheel.
In QGIS 2.14.7 LTR there is an option to completely disable zooming using the mouse wheel from Settings -> Options -> Map Tools -> Panning and Zooming, you need to change Mouse wheel action to Nothing as you can see below:
However, the same option is not available in QGIS 2.16.3. But there is a new option called Magnification. When you lock the scale in QGIS and zoom using mouse wheel, the zooming here is not actually zoom but magnify the view of the screen.
Yes, I guess the mouse wheel action has become a default setting in QGIS 2.16.x. If you go to Settings > Options > Map Tools > Zoom factor, you will see the minimum value possible is 1.1. Makes sense since a factor of 1 for a given value will remain the same. So let's change the zoom factor to 1 using Python!
Most computer users are unlikely to be familiar with the concept of mouse acceleration. However, gamers tend to be aware of the annoying problems this feature can cause while gaming. In this guide, we will go over what mouse acceleration is in Windows 10 and macOS, why it exists and how to turn it off.
You would normally assume that the mouse pointer travels the same distance across the desktop as the mouse across the mouse pad. However, the integrated sensor for mouse acceleration ensures that the mouse pointer on the desktop adapts to the speed at which the mouse is moved. It thus covers more distance the faster you move the mouse.
The designers of mouse acceleration thought of it as a practical feature for mouse users since the sensors interpret any accelerated mouse movement as a desire to also move the mouse pointer faster. However, this artificial acceleration of the pointer can become a problem, especially for gamers.
