I'm not sure if this is the right subforum cause it's not really about hardware but here it goes anyways

I'm working on a linux based device which has an usb port. I'd like to output data related to mouse movement / keyboard input.

I've read that you can have the second computer interpet the device as an HID, but how do i make this known? can i just write data in the correct interface to the port and it'll work? and if so where do i write it to? just /dev/<usbport ?

I hope someone can clarify this for me, thanks!


Ps. it'll be on a 2.6.27+ kernel
