Under X, you would catch and process messages from the devices in
your event loop, for the most part it's very straightforward. I have pretty
complete keyboard support in my toolkit which you can have a look at
if you like: it's at http://www.379.com/gut/, and the files you want to
look at are Gut/Include/gut_input.h and Gut/Src/Input/input_x.cpp. I
haven't moved the mouse and joystick handling over yet, but they
should be there relatively soon.
