To use pymouse on Linux, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install dependencies: Install Xlib: sudo apt-get install python-xlib Install setuptools: sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
  2. Install pymouse: You can install pymouse using pip: pip install pymouse
  3. Create a Python script and import the necessary modules: from pymouse import PyMouse from pykeyboard import PyKeyboard
  4. Initialize an instance of PyMouse and PyKeyboard: mouse = PyMouse() keyboard = PyKeyboard()
  5. Use the PyMouse and PyKeyboard functions to control input devices: # Example: move the mouse to coordinates (x, y) mouse.move(x, y) # Example: click the left mouse button at coordinates (x, y), y, 1) # Example: simulate pressing the 'Enter' key keyboard.press_key("Return") keyboard.release_key("Return")

Note: Depending on your distribution and Python version, you might need to use pip3 instead of pip for installation and python3 instead of python for running the script.
