I emerged xorg-server 1.13.0 this morning, used emerge @x11-module-rebuild, rebooted, and now my mouse is stuck on the first screen. I use a two screen setup, and the cursor in prior versions would move freely between screens. Since the update, if I move the cursor to the side where the second screen should start (right side of left screen) it wraps around to the other side of the first screen (left side of left screen). Both screens display properly, and the cursor behaved properly before the update. I haven't changed any use flags.

The only error in Xorg.0.log is one about evdev not being able to open /dev/input/mouse0 -- I changed the mouse input device section to the "mouse" driver from evdev, same problem, but without the error. I also tried changing the device from mouse0 to /dev/input/mice with both drivers, same problem.

The only file in /etc/xorg.conf.d/ is 50-vboxmouse.conf -- I've tried removing this directory elsewhere to get it out of the way, but it hasn't helped. The man page for xorg.conf seems to indicate that xorg.conf should still be in /etc/X11/ so I've left it there. I haven't tried symlinking it into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ yet, might do that next, but I'm not sure it will help as this seems to be a change in the way the mouse is used, and the screens still display correctly. The keyboard, if started in the second screen, works in the second screen until I move it to the first screen, where it then stays.

I haven't been able to find mention of this problem elsewhere, but I might be searching the wrong places or with the wrong words. I might have to revert back to an earlier xorg-server version, but I don't like doing that.

In xorg.conf, my input device section for the mouse currently looks like this:

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier "Mouse"
  Driver "evdev"
  Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
  Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection


...and my server layout like this:

Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier "Dual Monitors"
  Screen 0 "Left" 0 0
  Screen 1 "Right" RightOf "Left"
  InputDevice "Keyboard" "CoreKeyboard"
  InputDevice "Mouse" "CorePointer"
  Option "Xinerama" "0"
EndSection


I think those are set up right, but 1.13.0 must be handling them differently than 1.12.99.905 was... I'm not sure, and haven't been able to find anything about configuration changes. If there's a link I missed, which is entirely possible, please let me know. If there are other files I need to post, I'd be happy to post them.

First thing:
xorg.conf.d is a directory that replaces xorg.conf file. You should use one or another. Every file that is inside xorg.conf.d is read, and it contents is treated as it was the part of xorg.conf

So start by removing (or moving to another place) every file that is inside xorg.conf.d and the xorg.conf file.
If you are using evdev, there is no need to use Mouse section that you have pasted.

Next steps depend on the graphics driver that you are using, so please write what is it.

The directory doesn't replace the file, it's an addition to it. All files in the directory are read, then xorg.conf is read. It's easiest to think of xorg.conf as being equivalent to xorg.conf.d/99-something.conf

Obviously you are right :)
Still presence of configuration in two places may lead to a mess when searching problems in other users' configs, that's why I usually suggest to use one or another.

Cursor stuck on one screen is a recurring issue with Xinerama. Sometimes it helps swapping the two monitors (exchanging the connectors and position in xorg.conf).

Unfortunately there is almost no interest in the Xinerama code upstream, so it is unlikely that the problem itself will be fixed.

Played around with screen positions in xorg.conf briefly. When I arranged them above and below, the cursor would loop from bottom edge of the one screen back to the top instead of the side to the far side of the same screen, so I reverted back to 1.12.4 -- I might try to get it working again later on. I am mostly convinced that it's not a configuration issue after turning Xinerama on and off and TwinView on and off to no avail and playing with mouse drivers and paths.

I think it comes from nvidia proprietary drivers, something you don't explicitly tell us you have update (even your twinview reference tell us you are using them).

Since the last nvidia update, my xorg refuse to handle properly metamodes : and 1680x1050, null always disable left screen instead of the right one, no wonder how i swap my screen.
I'm still using xorg-1.12-0-r1 ebuild i have just update nvidia drivers to 302.17

Same issue here using x11-base/xorg-server-1.13.0 & x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-304.48. My configuration was working before upgrading. Mouse works (it can move from screen-to-screen) when Xinerama is on or Nvidia's Twinview is activated. There is no relevant evidence of any error on Xorg.0.log

Same problem for me :? I've updated xorg-server from 1.12.3 to 1.13.0 and nvidia-drivers from 304.37-r1 to 304.48. Never had such problem.

Same here - mouse jumps to the left of the left screen after upgrading to xorg-server 1.13. I do use nvidia-drivers, same version as before the update, but I do not use twinview or xinerama - just plain xorg separate screens with XBMC on the right one. This is incredibly annoying, as it causes me to search my mouspointer even more often than having it "hidden" somehwere on the TV screen.
