A Java Multi-Platform Project for the Wiimote, with some characteristics similar to GlovePIE, started in Santa Cruz Bolivia as an effort to continue the OpenPIE project. Contributions needed. Documentation required.

Actually it used to work with kernel 2.4 and with bluez 2 and uinput. but since kernel 2.6 we've seen lots of incompatibility and code was left behind. On the other hand windows systems suported it on win32. Back then 64 bit drivers were not popular and the increasing requirements left or project useles. Finally the guy who wrote the WiremoteJ library for java has dissapeared and left no code behind to continue his work. I'm lookin forward retaking this and expand some functionallity but I'm kinda short of time for the next months, but if you have widcomm or bluesoleil stacks and ppjoy (that now is available for 64 bit) on a win32 system it should work. About linux ubuntu 7.10 and bluez stack should do fine... I know it's somewhat buggy running scripts from outside the folder due to icons and stuff. But it was great working with it.
Basically it is a good idea,pretty simple and user friendly interface. 1. No English. 2. There Wiimote was connected to Bluetooth and I was able to run wmgui and wminput without any issues 3. I was not able to start it on opensuse/Linux; Couse it can't see Bluetooth device. This beutiful program is useless
