About Wiican

Wiican assists on configuration and management of your wiimote under GNOME Desktop: it tracks bluetooth connectivity and allows create mappings to adapt your wiimote for use with any application. It also provide a DBus API, so third apps could make use of wiimote easily.

On backend it's wminput , the cwiid event driver for wiimote. Wiican uses wminput and wminput configuration files for define and use mappings.


  • Discover if everything it's ok for connecting wiimote
  • Notify the state of wiimote usaging
  • User-defined mappings creation, edition and share assistant
  • D-Bus API to manage the wiimote connections
