[PD] how to use a mouse or drawing tablet with [hid]-like objects AND disabling it as a mouse pointer in the OS (OS X, Linux)?

Once, on mac there was a third party software : OSCulator. 

I don't have a mac and I don't know if its updated and works with recent 
OS version.

On Windows there was glovepie but this seems definitively outdated. ... 
Maybe autoHotkey ?

Still interested if you find a solution...
