I need to launch a zenity's script with mouse, I managed to launch the script using "Xsession".

With the following configuration :

[Desktop Entry]

My script runs correctly, and works however I do not have a mouse! And this script displays an RDP login screen and it is a problem for the user to not be able to move the mouse to change from "username" to password box and press OK.

Once the RDP connection, everything works.

So, is it possible to initialize the mouse in my script?

Script bash :

> #!/bin/bash 
>W=$(xwininfo -root | awk '$1=="Width:" {print $2}') 
>H=$(xwininfo -root | awk '$1=="Height:" {print $2}')
> OUTPUT=$(zenity --forms --width=$W --height=$H --title="Connexion RDP"
> \
>     --text="Information de connexion" \
>     --separator="," \
>     --add-entry="Username" \
>     --add-password="Password")
> OUTPUT_RESULTS=$? Username=$(awk -F, '{print $1}' <<<$OUTPUT)
> Password=$(awk -F, '{print $2}' <<<$OUTPUT)
> xfreerdp /f /v:IP_server /d:lab.dom.ad /u:$Username /p:$Password
> /cert-ignore +clipboard
