You can also use your local clone with git send-email.


coord displays coordinates on the screen and prints the position of the one you type. One use is to click things with your keyboard:

xdotool mousemove $(coord); xdotool click 1

coord is part of the Tiles desktop environment.


coord is just a Python 3 script that requires PyQt6, but you could run:

cp coord /usr/local/bin

to add it to your $PATH.


You can tweak the coordinates with the arrow keys.

If you can't see your desktop behind the coordinates, try it with a compositor like xcompmgr or picom running.
