No idea on that, except I know Andrew Psaltis was using some sort of tablet successfully at one point in the past.
I'm pleased to say that with the xorg 1.9.1 update, the 1.3.0 synaptics driver is working on my T900 tablet PC. There are error messages in Xorg.0.log, but apparently they are spurious.

Reading from another (possibly) outdated list, someone may have removed the serial wacom code from the wacom driver. This is not a good idea for tablet PCs, at least two of which use a serial interface to talk to the screen's tablet (via ttyS0). Having said that, Ubuntu 10.10 has a working wacom interface for this tablet.

Finally, Robby replied to someone who asked about gesture for the synaptics. However, (multi-)touch screens also need the gesture interface as well. I don't know whether I don't see eveidence of that in the 1.9.1 xorg.log file because it is not seeing any input capabilities of my screen at all, or because gesture is not built in. Anyone?

Update: It seems that xorg fails to init touchpad and unload synaptic module *everytime* on my box. But as you can see, I have `Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"` and some other options set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf. Sometimes configure works but sometimes don't. I don't know where is the problem now... ;(

This one was confusing me for a bit. After reporting a bug on an xorg list about synaptics and 1.9.0 for my laptop (where the touchpad was just acting like a dumb mouse), I was educated into realizing that more if there is more than one file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d which matches your touchpad, then X may try to configure your touchpad multiple times, but only (apparently) the first one succeeds, so the second (and possibly third?) attempts fail miserably, whining into your log file.

Or maybe you knew that...

Now, if your touchpad is actually not working, then you may want to file a bug report.

Everything looks good but a few EEs in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

[ 5631.602] (EE) ioctl EVIOCGNAME failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
[ 5631.610] (EE) PreInit returned NULL for "HP Laser Mobile Mouse"

This does not prevent X to start nor my mouse and keyboard to work though.
Eventually I *think* I did find out what caused this - anyway I propose a workaround.

I understand that the problem occurs because:
1) the mouse is registered twice in the /dev tree: not only as /dev/input/event<number> but as /dev/input/mouse<number> as well
2) in the latter case, as it is considered being a keyboard it matches the MatchIsKeyboard condition, thus the InputClass "keyboard-all" provided by /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf is applied - but of course the options do not make sense for a mouse.

The workaround is very simple : just add a condition to the InputClass "keyboard-all" in 90-keyboard-layout.conf:
Code:
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
This seems to solve the problem - at least here

PS Other than that, eveything looks good after 'upgradepkg <all Robby's X packages as of today>', huge thanks to RW.
PS2 It doesn't hurt to have nouveau blacklisted as anyhow it will be automatically loaded at X startup, under the conditions that xf86-video-nouveau be installed and used in X configuration, of course.

I'm rebuilding xorg-server at the moment, so expect those either tonight or tomorrow (the only change is to add the MatchDevice stuff to the default xorg.conf.d snippet.

I'd like to extend a *BIG* "thank you" to everyone who has participated in this thread - your feedback has been invaluable. This is why I love our community :-)

The "20101104 (again)"-update is running fine.
No Problems, nVidia proprietary driver runs as fine
with the 2.6.36-ck1 kernel. Thank you Robby :-)

Regards, Jack.
Cheers

Or maybe you knew that...

Now, if your touchpad is actually not working, then you may want to file a bug report.
Thanks for telling me about that! I have gone through the thread and now I know where is the problem. I thought the settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d will *overwrite* settings in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d !... There even have a line said
Code:
# Copy this file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the copy
which suggest that...

RW, should those configure files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d be .new files and let users could change them safely?

grissiom,
Everything *should* be fine as-is ; if something doesn't work with the current configuration, then it's either an upstream bug OR I've seriously misunderstood how things are *supposed* to work

Does anyone in this thread happen to have this stuff running on an Nvidia GeForce 6150?

Well, your latest build work fine with an on-board Nvidia GeForce 6100, but with an modified Mesa (enabling the Gallium Nouveau driver).

To be honest, there is not something amazing as speed (as expected, right? ), but with the Blur effect disabled, the speed is acceptable. And no crashes.

Hello all,

I'm back because I am still wondering why whenever I plug-in my USB mouse I get this in X log (even if that doesn't hurt):
Code:
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "HP Laser Mobile Mouse" (type: KEYBOARD)
But:
Code:
bash-4.1$ udevadm info --path=/sys/class/input/event8 --query=property
UDEV_LOG=3
DEVPATH=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-1/4-1:1.0/input/input10/event8

I do not know what makes xorg consider that my mouse is a keyboard

I suppose it's something udev-related. After having set udev_log to "info" I got appended log when plugging in the mouse but can't find my way in it. I append corresponding X log too.

I would be more than happy if somebody -- well, may be I should have written "some Robby" -- could shed some light in my poor mind.

Of course I'm ready to provide more information, just ask.

Thanks in advance

PS there is a small typo in /etc/udev/udev.conf:
Code:
sed -i 's/udevcontrol/udevadm control/' /etc/udev/udev.conf
should fix it.

Yup, everything should work fine with current configuration. But something will go wrong when following the introduction:
Code:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - IT WILL BE OVERWRITTEN ON UPGRADES
# Copy this file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the copy
It will make X configure the same hardware at least twice with different configurations. Let along only one configuration will take effect and the other will fail, it will pour EE into X.0.log...

That's done by input_id (part of udev). Is there a button or something on that mouse, which would make it have a "keyboard" of sorts? More importantly, does it work correctly regardless? If not, then this is worth posting on the udev mailing list -- input_id.c hasn't been touched since January, so it's not likely to be fixed by upgrading udev.

Yes, that is fixed in my update queue for Pat.

I can't reproduce that at all here. I used a simple test case: I copied /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf, and then made it look like this:
Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard-all"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option "XkbVariant" "intl"
        Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection
The keyboard was configured for intl, and there were no errors or warnings in Xorg.0.log about trying to use the XkbVariant from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keyboard-layout.conf -- I *know* for sure, because first I uncommented the XkbVariant string and left it empty, which will generate a warning to complain.

Just to be sure, I then tried it the other way around -- I made the 90-keyboard-layout.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ define "intl" for XkbVariant, and left it empty in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ -- this time, there were no messages showing that "intl" was every set, and instead, I got warnings about the empty XkbVariant string.

All that said, I'm curious - are you using the same filename in both places?
