mouse externals not working
This is on Linux (tested both Ubuntu 16.04 and Arch). None of the mouse externals (cyclone/MouseState, hid/mouse and hcs/cursor) report any mouse positions or button clicks in Purr-Data. cyclone/MouseState does work in mainline pd-l2ork, but the other two don't work there either.
Now being able to read the mouse position is very useful, because the mouse is always readily available as an input device. I often build a basic "Theremin" with the students as a warm-up exercise, before getting into MIDI, OSC and the other input methods available in Pd. Does Purr-Data already provide this functionality in any way? Otherwise it would be nice if we could make at least one of these externals work.
