For example, I want to get only the 3rd element in each row when I call:
xinput --list --short|grep "slave pointer"
I get the output:
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ MCE IR Keyboard/Mouse (ite-cir) id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:101a id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
I would like to get only the names like "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad", ...
I saw somewhere a solution with awk and print somehow, but isn't there a simpler solution to achieve that without
perl or such?
