I did a fresh install on a new gaming desktop. To save time I installed the base system (console text), X Org, and Cinnamon before rebooting my system. When booting into the login screen my keyboard and mouse do not work. They however are working using the minimal Gentoo live CD.

This is what my make.conf looks like. Any suggestions to get me started would be greatly appreciated.


dmesg output (using chroot)

and this is my kernel config

Both devices are Razer branded. I am able to boot up tty and I am unable to login due to the problem. I'm pretty sure this is not a xorg issue.

Can't see your make.conf, it looks like you linked to an image by mistake. Anyhow, 'emerge --info' shows the actual settings in force in your system much better. All hardware is handled by kernel, input devices are no exception, so it begins with kernel configuration. In case you need help with it please post the .config, wgetpaste is your friend.

Thanks for responding,

This is the make.conf file

You decided to use 'libinput', which is the right way to go.
  1. Please read https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Libinput, especially section 'Troubleshooting'.

  2. You may want to change INPUT_DEVICES to
    Code:
    INPUT_DEVICES="libinput"
    and run
    Code:
    emerge --update --deep --newuse -av @world
    emerge --depclean

    to get rid of outdated input drivers.

  3. Please post the output of
    Code:
    emerge --info

    as requested by Jaglover.

I'm not sure if it matters or not, but you only need either `evdev` or `libinput` as `INPUT_DEVICES`. I use `evdev` myself, as it's the only way I can configure my mouse with xset and have sane settings.

I am getting closer to getting my Gentoo system running up again. It turns out my root partition wasn't being mounted on boot up due to mistyping the UUID in fstab. Now I get a black screen when booting up, but the input devices are still not working.

This is the output from the dmesg log

My input devices work now! Turns out I forgot to mount my boot drive when I reconfigured the Kernel and grub.

It's also possible that input devices won't work in X if udev fails to start. In that case restarting the udev service from a console should fix it, usually without needing to restart X.
