xev is a program that shows details about mouse and keboard events. This is most useful while trying to customize mouse behavior for mice with a large number of buttons, or getting multimedia keys on more modern keyboards working. It's often used in conjunction with the x11-apps/xmodmap program.

For information on getting mouse or keyboard functionality, please see X11 Mouse or HOWTO Use Multimedia Keys.
