Hello Rob,

Uhm, don't want to touch rc.* just for one single GUI... :(

It's not related to the movie itself. It's just like a X86config file.
Settings required are, among others:

 - type of input device (none, PS/2 compatible mouse, Touch screen)

 - device name of input device (ex. /dev/input/mice)

 - touch screen calibration values

These are very specific for the FB GUI and should not affect other

I just thought about a special [FB] section in .gnashrc that get's
parsed / interpreted only when the FB GUI is used.

So you're telling me the current design does not support this?

fb.cpp could read it's own config file, of course, but I doubt that
would be an elegant solution... What do you think?
