If what is provided via accessibility in graphical environments is not
enough for you (if you need this in the text console as well), it
should be relatively simple to program such a tool for the
Linux kernel input layer system.  Let us know if the solution you have
been given is not enough, such a program should be
written in a few lines of C code, and it will work with any
kind of input device you might want to use.
