xf86-input-libinput is a libinput-based X.Org driver. The actual driver bit
is quite limited, most of the work is done by libinput, the driver itself
passes on the events (and wrangles them a bit where needed).

Unless you're already running a Wayland desktop, this driver is the easiest
way to test libinput and help us. However, in case the 0.2.0 version number
isn't enough of a hint: this is a very new driver, expect some rough edges
and bugs. The driver is now hosted on freedesktop.org, please file bugs in
the Input/libinput component of the xorg product.

For the time being, expect that you need the git version of libinput to
successfully compile/run this driver. For reference, libinput version
028513a0a723e97941c39c4aeb17433198723913 will work with this release.

Note that this driver works best when assigned to _all_ devices*. libinput
has a number of cross-device features such as top softwarebutton handling
that only work when all affected devices are managed by this libinput.

Note that desktop environments don't support this driver yet, you will have
to change configurations with an xorg.conf.d snippet or by poking around
with xinput list-props/xinput set-prop. If you don't know how to do that,
this driver isn't for you yet. Not all config options are exposed as
properties yet.

For the foreseeable future, libinput and this driver are Linux-only (evdev,
timerfd, epoll, ...).

Happy testing!


* except graphics tablets. we don't support those yet.
