The CWiid package contains the following parts:

-2.wmgui - GTK gui to the wiimote.
-3.wminput - an event/joystick/mouse driver for the wiimote.
-4.lswm - list wiimote devices (in the spirit of ls{,pci,usb}, etc.
-4.wmdemo - a minimal demonstration of the libwiimote API. (not installed)

To install global configuration files to the more familiar /etc rather than /usr/etc or /usr/local/etc, execute configure with --sysconfdir=/etc.
-While CWiid is still in the early development stages, installation directories and filenames are changed more often than in a mature, stable package. In order to prevent the collection of obselete directories and files, it is recommended that you run 'make uninstall && make uninstall_config' from your current CWiid source directory before installing a new one. Files are currently installed to the following directories: /usr/local/{bin,etc,lib,lib/cwiid}. Recently, but no longer, used directories include /usr/share/CWiid - this directory may be deleted.

In order to prevent the collection of obselete directories and files, it is recommended that you run 'make uninstall && make uninstall_config' from your current CWiid source directory before installing a new one. Files are currently installed to the following directories: /usr/local/{bin,etc,lib,lib/cwiid,lib/python2.X/site-packages,share/doc,share/man}. Recently, but no longer, used directories include /usr/share/CWiid - this directory may be deleted.
Many distributions do not have /usr/local/lib in the library search path, and on many of these same distributions, the library installation directory (as determined by autoconf) is /usr/local/lib, creating a problem when you try to run programs depending on libraries installed there. There are two clean ways to fix this:
1.Add a --prefix=/usr argument to ./configure
-2.Add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf, then run ldconfig.
+2.Add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf, then run ldconfig.
I prefer the second method since it keeps local software in the local directory where it should be, and it fixes the problem for every package using /usr/local/lib, not just CWiid. Until someone offers a convincing argument for the omission of /usr/local/lib from /etc/ld.so.conf, I consider this to be a distribution bug, and method #2 above is the fix.

For developers, the plugin API is specified in cwiid/wminput/wmplugin.h. The examples cover most of the functionality, except buttons, which are triggered by asserting the i^th bit of the buttons element of struct wmplugin_data, where i is the index of the button.
+Plugins may now be implemented in Python, as well as C. A Python version of the acc plugin may be found in cwiid/wminput/plugins/acc.
