I have an app that reads input from 4 (four) mice that are plugged in via USB in addition to the built-in touchpad. This is no problem for Ubuntu 9.10: hald notices the new devices and udev's them brand new entries called
My app runs as a normal user app. The files in
/dev belong to
root and aren't readable to anyone else.
I don't have a problem doing
chmod a+r mouse? once, but the devices come and go with every reboot and every time the dang rodents are plugged in or out.
Can someone please tell me a script or something to manipulate so my
chmod happens automagically?
