I'm having the root permission problem.  Its kinda becoming a hassle
switching to root in pd and then having to chmod every patch that I make..
Can anyone tell me how I can make things where I can use /dev/input/*
without being root?  "chmod a+rw /dev/input/event2" works, but it goes away
after startup.  Maybe I should put this in a startup script, or is there a
better way?


But now it even fail while logged on as root. Any one know something I
