so i instaled x-server and xorg drivers but it seems i had screwed something up becouse my xfce4 start without any input device and xorg log says that i have no driver specified for the input devices

so can you direct me please where shall i look?

oh seems i accidently deleted file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf.

how do i restore it back?

emerge -av1 evdev

Make sure that you have INPUT_DEVICES="evdev" set in your make config so it gets pulled automatically.


EDIT: VoidMage is correct. It should be emerge -1 xf86-input-evdev not emerge -1 evdev. I should stop posting package names from memory.

:roll: that's 'emerge -1 xf86-input-evdev' - INPUT_DEVICES work via x11-base/xorg-drivers meta.

That is odd.

I don't know if it will work, but here is my file if you want to try it:

Code:
#
# Catch-all evdev loader for udev-based systems
# We don't simply match on any device since that also adds accelerometers
# and other devices that we don't really want to use. The list below
# matches everything but joysticks.

Section "InputClass"                                                                                                           
        Identifier "evdev pointer catchall" 
        MatchIsPointer "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall" 
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev touchpad catchall"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
        MatchIsTablet "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection
 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
        MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection
