I am on an Eeepc running Ubuntu and I am trying to store the raw data from the Eeepc's inbuilt track pad in a file.
To do this with the keyboard (as root) I went
cat /dev/input/event7 > ~/raw-keyboard-out.data
The result was the whole bunch of random-looking data I was hoping for.
Now I want to do this for my mouse, and I tried all of the 'files' in this folder in an analogous operation and none of them seem to stream the input into a file.
Does anybody know what the name of the TrackPad/mouse device is called in the /dev folder for an Asus Eeepc 1001p?
The hope is eventually to manipulate the data and stream it to one of the output devices in /dev
