Hi, guys.
After recent update I got a problem: neither mouse nor keyboard works in my KDE.
I checked portage news and found that there is a news about libinput. So I added libinput to "INPUT_DEVICES" variable an ran emerge -N @world, as it was suggested in that news. emerge fetched and installed libinput, but it didn't help much - still no any input devices working (I tried it after reboot).

Any idea on what's wrong with my keybord/mouse? I assume that it's due to recent xorg-server update. How do I fix it?

it pulled in new package xf86-input-libinput and rebuilt nvidia-drivers and xorg-server. It's strange that xf86-input-libinput wasn't mention in that news in conjunction with libinput

Now it works!
Thank you very much!

Though, there is still one problem : plasma doesn't work properly, but it's a different topic issue.

I think since your first attempt only updated packages that are listed in @world, and you do not have xorg-drivers in @world, the first attempt ignored the package that needed to change. The addition of --deep probably made the difference.
