     My understanding is way old. I'm pretty sure
the kernel has mouse system calls such as mouse
down and mouse up. I don't know anything about
dbus. Using the mouse, changing position and
clicking, sends information to a device driver
that forwards that information to the kernel's
device driver API. The kernel passes the data
to whatever is the foreground application. So
using the mouse controls in the GUI might be a
matter of sending timing information to the
     My guess is that if dbus is involved, it's
mainly in the way or maybe has no affect.
     Best I can guess. I hope someone let's us
know what's actually the case.
