Comment 36 for bug 1372609

serio4 was indeed the device for which the program worked.

All five fingers are registered and give plenty of output.

What would the steps be to make this translate into cursor movement and button
presses? Currently this eats all of the input and transforms it into console
output, as far as I can see.
