detach the mouse cursor from /dev/input/mouse0


i am developing an app that uses computer mice to track the movement of a system. the problem is that those mice should not work as a mouse in the OS. (kubuntu 6.06)

so i would like to know if it is possible to tell the system that the only device that should work as a mouse is for example /dev/input/mouse1, and /dev/input/mouse0 should not interfere with the cursor. (but at the same time be accessible to polling...)

any suggestions?

thank you for reading

Might want to take a look at GPS recivers as they are usually detected as a mouse.
