Description PauAmma freebsd_triage 2020-03-15 04:38:16 UTC
Following the switch to libinput in Xorg server 1.20, examples 5.7 and 5.9 need to use "libinput" instead of "keyboard" as the driver name.

(Note: this may be applicable to 12.x and 13 only, in which case the examples would need to be split, not just changed.)
Comment 1 Felix Palmen 2020-03-20 12:33:56 UTC
Just omitting "Driver" entirely works as well, at least with the newer (udev) version, didn't test the older one.

  Track switch to libinput in xorg-server 1.20.8

  Remove the Driver line from examples 5.7 and 5.9, thus making them
  valid for both variant configurations of X (with or without libinput).

  For 12.1 and xorg-server 1.20.8, add "Set kern.evdev.rcpt_mask=6 in
  /etc/sysctl.conf if not using moused" important paragraph to section
  " Mice and Pointing Devices".
