I could see something like this being used to study user desktop behaviors. If you know how the desktop is set up, you can see where they spend most of their time clicking for Menus, Icons, etc.

Actually, if this also took a screenshot of the root window, with panels/kickers/etc it could be even more useful.

I'd also like seeing stats like "How often does the mouse sit idle when the user is doing something (aka, not when the screensaver is on.)

Just me, but I find it interesting. :D

I think it is a very cool app (even if I haven't tried it yet :P). Well, looking on the screenshots, it would be cool with more features. Do you have to save images manually? Why not a "Save image every x minutes/hours? If you save 1 picture/day, would it be possible to add the other 3 days images to see where mouse have been the last 4 days? (I know that you can make it in Gimp, but it is... troublesome).

Well great app! I hvae to try it ^^

Hey, this is really cool, I ever wanted to write a programm to log all the keys being typed all day, and print some statistics then. But I never found the time to do it.

The logging of the mouse position is also very cool.

Keep improving it.

Sorry for my english.

 Density

I think it's a very good idea to plot the path of the mouse, but maybe it could be even more convenient to have a "density map", showing with a color scale the regions of the screen where the mouse spends most of its time. If You don't know how to proceed to implement such an algorithm, just mail me, I'd be glad to help You.

Very cool !
another great functionnality would be to register clicks only.

I think it would be much fun to see where we click the most

Yeah, that would be cool. Why not different colors for the different buttons? (standard left/middle/right?)

Weee, I love apps like this! :D

Yes that would be cool...

Unfortunately, that is much harder to do as X does not allow multiple clients to register for receiving ButtonPress events on a Window.

So why one easily can write a key logger for X, a mouse click logger is more problematic.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
