    Mobile Mouse App for iPhone

    Hey guys,
    my brother found this app for the iPhone 3gs, which helps him use his iPhone to control the mouse.
    http://www.mobilemouse.com/
    The app doesn't have any support for our beloved Linux, so I was wondering if there was some sort of an equivalent set up that was available for Linux. I saw one of my friends use the wii-mote as a pointer mouse and have my hopes that there is something similar for the iPhone.
    Any ideas?

    No ideas? Wow, that's the first I have stumped this forum.

    Good question. I don't know of any alternates, but did you try to install the Mobile Mouse software in Wine? I bought the iPhone app a while back, so I will try it in Wine when I get a chance.

    Okay, I am kind of new to WINE as well, so I need a bit of guidance. So, I downloaded the .exe file from the site meant to run on windows, and then I right click on it and select the "Open With WINE Windows Program Loader" and it gives me a warning stating "The '/home/usrnm/.win/drive_c/setup2.5.0.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about executable bit."
    How do I get around this block?
