I'm looking for a solution that would display the current mouse cursor coordinates in realtime (i.e. NOT xdotool and NOT xev).
I need to move the mouse to a certain position, then press Alt-Tab to flip to another window and record the coordinates there. (This would not move the mouse, so the coordinate display would stay the same).
There's a Windows program that works BEAUTIFULLY for this purpose – http://download.cnet.com/Cursor-Position/3000-2383_4-75449858.html?tag=mncol;1
…but it doesn't even start up in Wine.
Alternately, instead of displaying the coordinates, if this solution could copy the coordinates (in XXX,YYY format) to the clipboard, upon pressing a hotkey, that would be even better.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
P.S. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
