having this code here.

xf86-input-libinput - a libinput-based X driver

The official repository for this driver is http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-input-libinput/

This is an X driver based on libinput. It is a thin wrapper around libinput, so while it does provide all features that libinput supports it does little beyond.

WARNING: misconfiguration of an X input driver may leave you without usable input devices in your X session. Use with caution.


To build, you'll need the X.Org X server SDK (check your distribution for a xorg-x11-server-devel package or similar) and libinput (check your distribution for libinput-devel or similar).

To get libinput from source, see: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/libinput/

To build the X server from source: http://www.x.org/wiki/Building_the_X_Window_System/


To build this driver:

autoreconf -vif
./configure --prefix=$HOME/build
make && make install

Note that this assumes the same prefix as used in "Building the X Window System" above, adjust as required. If you want a system install, use a prefix of /usr.

Install the default configuration file:

cp conf/99-libinput.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

This will assign this driver to all devices. Use with caution.
