Keeping a pointer out of intput/mice and node in place for unplugged usb device
Is there a way to prevent kernel from adding events from a pointer to input/mice? if not is there a dirver for a device with similar funcionallity that allows one to configure the devices mixed?
Problem is as follows: I have multiple mice Id like to hotplug and use in X which means i must use input/mice but I also have an aiptek tablet that when plugged in gets treated as a mouse and sends its relative events to input/mice effectivley making it unusable as an absolute pen.Now if there were way to keep the tablet events out of mice, half of the problem would be solved.
second part is that if I unplug the tablet, udev removes the node for it effectevly causing X not to start any more because device location is not there. I can get the X to start even if the tablet is not plugged in by touching the place it should be and making a symlink to tablets device. now when the tablet is plgged in events start running from that point, but when I unplug it the node point is removed and X becomes unstartable....
As to X and hotplug support, could it not be solved by making this kind of "jumper" drivers?
