mouse- and keyboard-driver-update

Postby koch » Sun Oct 21, 2007 0:09

hello, refering to the x-org-server-update-threads i just wanna know how to update mouse- and keyboard-drivers?
search didn't help, google didn't help, gentoo-forums didn't help.

thanks

well it depends on what drivers you are using,

reinstall the packages for your drivers

for example

Code: Select all
emerge xf86-input-mouse

Code: Select all
emerge xf86-input-keyboard

well if you haven't edit the default xorg mouse/keyboard drivers, those are the ones you need, otherwise you would know when you changed them in the xorg
