I'd like to add this info to the wiki. Since it's actually useful and includes commands, it will likely get deleted based on past wiki admin behavior.

Possibly this comment could be allowed remain in place?

$ cd /usr/share/ratpoison/
$ gcc -o sloppy sloppy.c -lX11
$ /usr/share/ratpoison/sloppy

I'll say this once: refrain from making baseless accusations, and focus on the article.
As to the section, it won't work as /usr/share is not user-writeable - either use a root prompt (#), or replace the cd with cp. There's also unrat.c. -- Alad (talk) 20:46, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
Alad, Thank you and advice taken. I wasn't aware of unrat.c. I found info on mouse usage in ratpoison practically nonexistent. Ratpoison is old and possibly uncommonly used today, not to mention with mouse? Have you tried or used unrat.c? I'd be interested in how it differs from sloppy. If not, I'll have to test it.

Looks like it's a poor man's version of Unclutter: [1] and [2]. -- Alad (talk) 21:43, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
