Requesting some infos…

Why hello everyone out there in Gentoo land 🙂

 Just a request for information (lots of it actually, as much as possible 🙂 )

What I am looking for is, if you are using a USB Keyboard or mouse, and you have hal installed, I would like the following informations

From either lshal or using the hal-device-manager,

select your usb keyboard/mouse (or find it in the output)

info.udi, info.product, usb_device.{device_revision_bcd,product,product_id,speed_bcd,vendor,vendor_id,version_bcd}

Also, if you have to use xmodmap, or you have it setup in your xorg.conf – the various configurations that you use.  Please send them to my email address steevatgentoodotorg 🙂  I am trying to gather as many of these various device informations as much as possible – and if you aren't using Gentoo, and you read this planet, or this blog – any Linux distro where you can easily get this information, those informations would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance everyone who responds!

    Out of interest, why? What are you planning to use this for?

    In gnome, with gnome-volume-manager, you can run an app whenever a usb keyboard or mouse gets plugged in, so the Gentopia team is planning on writing an app to do just that – when you plugin one of these devices, it will (eventually) just work 🙂
