Hi Radek,

is it possible to modify the xorg.conf file? At my company we run our system on 
All-in-One Desktop Machines equipped with Touchscreen. To turn of the mouse 
enter "void" as the mouse driver instead of "mouse" or "auto". Even if the 
corresponding module "xserver-xorg-input-void" (i.e. void_drv.so) is not 
present this will lead to X ignoring the mouse events.

BTW. /dev/input/mice is a placeholder to make X read all kinds of mice at 
once. It is supposed to simplify the configuration as you could replace your 
PS/2 mouse with a USB one, a touchpad or even a good old serial mouse. But if 
you know the concrete input of the Touchscreen (cat /proc/bus/input/devices) 
you can enter this one into the xorg.conf.
