Intercepting XTestFake events without an X server
I have a machine that does not have an X11 server installed. However, there is this program that keeps sending out XTestFakeMotionEvent and XTestFakeButtonEvent events defined by the X11 XTest library . Normally ,these events can force an X server to emulate mouse motion and clicks
However, since there is no X server on this machine, I wanted to find out if there is a way to build a C program replacement to intercept these events coming from this other program?

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
An x server can be running locally on the host, or remotely on another computer. This application that is sending the X events mentioned must have been started with a valid DISPLAY environment or display command line option, otherwise it should not run at all, let alone propagate events to a non-existing X server. IE, without a valid X server, what you are saying is happening, cannot happen...Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
