Frequently Asked Questions
What programs can I use the mouse in?
How do I enable mouse reporting in Vim?
To enable the mouse for all modes add the following to your
if has("mouse") set mouse=a endif
:help mouse for more information and other possible values.
What about enabling it in Emacs?
By default MouseTerm will use simulated mouse wheel scrolling in Emacs. To
enable terminal mouse support, add this to your
(unless window-system (xterm-mouse-mode 1) (global-set-key [mouse-4] '(lambda () (interactive) (scroll-down 1))) (global-set-key [mouse-5] '(lambda () (interactive) (scroll-up 1))))

make to compile the plugin, and
make install to install it into
your home directory's SIMBL plugins folder.
