* Adding Vladimir Kondratyev to Cc since he's contributed evdev patch Hi Andriy, evdev works in parallel with standard input system, so you don't have to worry about console input support. Current evdev implementation uses following devices as a source of input events: ukbd(4), ums(4), atkbd(4), kbdmux(4), sysmouse(4) As you see three of them are actual hardware and two of them are virtual aggregating devices. You can enable/disable particular sources using kern.evdev.rcpt_mask sysctl. There are four controlling bits to enable/disable driver as a source of events: bit 0: is set enables sysmouse bit 1: is set enables kbdmux bit 2: is set enables ums bit 3: is set enables atkbd, ukbd By default sysmouse and kbdmux are enabled. Sysmouse requires moused to work, so make sure that moused is running on your system. In your Xorg config you'll need something like this: Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "evdev" Option "Device" "/dev/input/event0" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "evdev" Option "Device" "/dev/input/event1" EndSection I didn't test Xorg thoroughly so there might be some undiscovered bugs. My target use case was Qt in EGLFS mode.
