libudev-compatible interface for devd
=====================================

Intended to work with xorg-server and libinput

Installation:

1. Install multimedia/v4l_compat port. In case of evdev-enabled kernels it
   can be patched to use system evdev headers instead of webcamd-supplied

2. Build and install libudev-devd

export CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include
export CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include
cd libudev-devd
./autogen.sh
./configure
make && sudo make install

3. recompile x11-servers/xorg-server with DEVD port option disabled and
following configure args added: --enable-config-udev=yes \
    --disable-config-udev-kms --disable-systemd-logind

If you are going to use /dev/kbdmux0 as keyboard input device patch[1] should
be applied to config/udev.c file in xorg distribution

4. Apply changes to xorg.conf

Remove all InputDevice from "ServerLayout" section of xorg.conf

For gsoc2014 evdev-enabled kernels add following lines to xorg.conf

<<< CUT

# Use the libinput driver for all event devices
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"evdev"
	Driver		"libinput"
#	Driver		"evdev"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/input/event*"
EndSection

# Explicitly set xkb_rules to evdev for keyboards
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"evdev keyboard"
	MatchIsKeyboard	"on"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/input/event*"
        Option		"XkbRules" "evdev"
EndSection

# Disable kbdmux to not receive keyboard events twice
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"evdev disable kbdmux"
	MatchIsKeyboard	"on"
	MatchProduct	"System keyboard multiplexer"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/input/event*"
	Option		"Ignore" "true"
EndSection

<<<CUT

For stock kernels add following lines to xorg.conf

<<<CUT

# Use the libinput driver for all event devices
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"evdev"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/input/event*"
	Driver		"evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"kbdmux"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/kbdmux*"
	Driver		"kbd"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"System mouse"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/sysmouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"PS/2 mouse"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/psm*"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"USB mouses"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/ums*"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"Joystick"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/joy*"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"Apple touchpad"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/atp*"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"Wellspring touchpad"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/wsp*"
	Driver		"mouse"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"eGalax touchscreen"
	MatchDevicePath	"/dev/uep*"
	Driver		"egalax"
EndSection

5. Fetch and install libinput port by Jan Kokemuller???

For gsoc2014 evdev-enabled kernels only:

fetch https://github.com/wulf7/libinput/archive/master.tar.gz
tar zxvf master.tar.gz
cd libinput-master
./autogen.sh
make && sudo make install

6. Fetch and install xf86-input-libinput

For gsoc2014 evdev-enabled kernels only:

fetch http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/individual/driver/xf86-input-libinput-0.14.0.tar.bz2
