mouse header for C
platform: linux 2.6.x
I'm trying to send a signal to my usb mouse. I don't want it to move, return coordinates to the screen, nothing of the sort. Let's say...I just want to send it a "wake up" signal so my screensaver doesn't kick in. (I know I know...there are many other ways to do it and tools to perform the job....perhaps by even tweaking the proper module in the kernel itself.)
But just out of curiosity...Is there a "mouse header" somewhere if I wanted to achieve above programmatically?
Hardware is the realm of "kernel space", which I guarantee you do not want to mess with that just to wake your mouse up so that you can prevent the screensaver from happening!
