I'm running ubuntu linux and I have a bluetooth mouse that I would like to capture evdev events from. The problem is that the event device can potentially be different any time I connect the mouse: sometimes it's
/dev/input/by-path aren't getting populated for this device. I've seen solutions that involve parsing /proc/bus/input/devices to find the event number, but I feel like there has to be an easier way. Isn't there a symlink out in /proc or /sys that will always point to the events for a specific device? Or Maybe some udev rule that I could configure?
