Descripton

Keymon is a program to help in teaching or podcasting by showing the current status of the mouse buttons and keyboard.

Keymon creates a small, borderless window which always stays topmost and monitors the keystrokes and mouse buttons used at any time in any program.

Configuration files are saved in ~/.config/key-mon/.
