I'm trying to separate some keyboards so they're not read by Qt on a Raspberry Pi. I'm using a udev rule to do so, but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm trying to direct /dev/input/event3 into /dev/input/ccreader and /dev/input/event4 into /dev/input/barcode. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I'll post all info below:

# udevadm info --attribute-walk --name /dev/input/event4
Udevadm info starts with the device specified by the devpath and then
walks up the chain of parent devices. It prints for every device
found, all possible attributes in the udev rules key format.
A rule to match, can be composed by the attributes of the device
and the attributes from one single parent device.

  • What does MODE:="xxxx"? (in first two lines of /etc/udev/rules.d/99-com.rules) Feb 18 '17 at 21:58
  • It's the permissions
    – Nick
    Feb 18 '17 at 22:13
  • Yes, I know that. But why ":=" and not just ":". I can not find any reference for this. Feb 18 '17 at 22:17
  • Sorry...not ":" but "="...like MODE="0660" Feb 18 '17 at 22:39
  • It means don't allow the rule to be rewritten by defaults. I've tested without it.
