Glad to see you want to get involved in ubuntu development.  To view the
source code of almost any package, you can use the apt-get source
packagename command.  This will download the source for you and unpack the
file so you can see how everything works.  No special access restrictions

Also you can visit packages.ubuntu.com to find a list of software Ubuntu
offers.  As for creating a mouse application, you may want to start by
seeing if you can find friends either on #ubuntu (irc.ubuntu.com) or on
www.ubuntuforums.org.  This list is specifically for the development of
ubuntu, and you may actually find more support for your program on the
Ubuntu-users list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-users).

If you are serious about developing you might want to give Dapper another
burn so that you can use the most recent stable libraries when building your
application(s).  If you have any further questions check the wiki out (
http://wiki.ubuntu.com) as it is a great resource!
