Usually, mouse events should also be grabbed via the Linux /dev/input/eventX mechanism. Just some test tools like evtest in order to get to know how the mouse events are propagated into the system. If the interface is clear, then simply adapt the ew_bsp_touch.c according to your needs. Does that help?
