4<para>The <application><acronym>GPM</acronym></application> (General
5Purpose Mouse daemon) package contains a mouse server for the console
6and <command>xterm</command>. It not only provides cut and paste support
7generally, but its library component is used by various software such as
8<application>Links</application> to provide mouse support to the
9application. It is useful on desktops, especially if following
10(Beyond) Linux From Scratch instructions; it's often much easier (and
