Thread: No Mouse or keyboard -> Xorg reinstall (or just reset of all configuration)?

    Default No Mouse or keyboard -> Xorg reinstall (or just reset of all configuration)?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently installed suse on my computer and ran into trouble today. When I boot into kde I don't have any keyboard or mouse control.

    I made sure this is not a hardware (I can control the pc when booting to bash) fault and therefore I suspect xorg to be misconfigured (A look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ revealed that there is only one file named "90-keytable.conf" so I guess there is something missing)

    When looking into
    The problem is now that I have now idea on how to reset or reinstall xorg using yast or another program from the comand line.

    Thanks in advance for any answers.

    Greetings
    Fencer

    Did you just get a kernel update? USB mouse and keyboard? KDE/Gnome?

    Yes, there should be a few more files :

    Code:
    # ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
    10-evdev.conf  20-synaptics.conf  50-device.conf   50-screen.conf   90-keytable.conf
    11-mouse.conf  20-wacom.conf      50-monitor.conf  50-vmmouse.conf
    evdev is installed with xorg-x11-xserver

    Code:
    # rpm -ql xorg-x11-server-7.5_1.8.0-10.3.1.x86_64 | grep "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/"
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
    other input devices are installed with xorg-x11-driver-input

    Code:
    # rpm -ql xorg-x11-driver-input-7.5-9.1.1.x86_64 | grep "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/"
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-mouse.conf
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-wacom.conf
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-vmmouse.conf
    I don't know why these files are missing on your system.
    Normally evdev is used for keyboard and mouse.

    Can you post the output of the following command :
    Code:
    grep evdev /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    thank you for the answer.
    I managed to solve the problem by just removing and reinstalling the packages you mentioned.

    the last command shows all of my input devices now and Xorg works perfectly.


    Greetings Fencer
