Getting mouse-responses while in max_priority mode

Hi

we have some code, which shows stimuli in max_priority mode and which
also should be able to get mouse-response events to log them.

unfortunately, max_priority disables any mouse-events (while lpt polling
is possible…)

max_priority was set in the posix_maxpriority.c file
with a sched_setscheduler() call:

int set_self_policy_priority( int policy, int priority ) {
struct sched_param params;

params.sched_priority = priority;
return sched_setscheduler(0,policy,&params);
}

what do we need to change, to have mouse-events enabled during
max_priority.

Thanks a lot for any help

That’s because mouse events need to be processed by the X server before
they are passed on to your application (assuming you are running under X11)

so, is there any way, to solve this problem, means: to have mouse-events
enabled, while in max_priority mode?
Thanks for further help, I appreciate it very much!!
