I'm trying to automate some tests on my RaspberryPi and I'm using python's pymouse to perform some emulated clicks. On my Debian it works fine, but when it comes to Raspbian it keeps failing with this error message when trying to import pymouse:
pi@pi ~/ $ python test.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "test.py", line 2, in <module> from pymouse import PyMouse File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pymouse/__init__.py", line 95, in <module> from unix import PyMouse, PyMouseEvent File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pymouse/unix.py", line 53, in <module> class PyMouseEvent(PyMouseEventMeta): File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pymouse/unix.py", line 54, in PyMouseEvent ctx = display2.record_create_context( File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/Xlib/display.py", line 216, in __getattr__ raise AttributeError(attr) AttributeError: record_create_context
So I did some research and found, that my issue might be caused by the missing record module in my x11 installation. I already created a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf and added the following lines:
Section "Module" Load "record" EndSection
After a restart I could not find any difference. I guess, the module is not installed so far in Raspbian? How can I install it?
I found someone else, who encountered a similar problem on fedora and he documented the fact, that his
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/librecord.so was missing. This does not seem to be my problem, as the file is existant.
I also tried to use
Xorg -configure to create a new xorg.conf and restarted my Pi afterwards. Still no luck. :-(
Here are some more information that might be helpful:
pi@pi ~/ $ grep LoadModule /var/log/Xorg.0.log [169058.900] (II) LoadModule: "fbturbo" [169058.912] (II) LoadModule: "fbdev"
