I was having trouble getting my touchpad to work with evdev, until I installed the xf86-input-synaptics driver which is suggested at the beginning of the page.  But if I understand it correctly, the xf86-input-synaptics driver takes over evdev, so none of the settings int he fdi would have any effect? --[[User:hensond|hensond]] 02:47, 04 Jan 2010 (EDT)

Could someone with intimate knowledge of the new Xorg hotplugging system please provide some details for that particular section of the article? I have seen all sorts of info about the Hal policies on the forums, however I do not use them myself and cannot verify their correctness. --Thayer Dec 2, 2008


I don't have much knowledge of the new Xorg hotplugging, but I do use it. I've added few of the policies that where used. --Duologic Jan 24, 2009


I can't get this to work at all! I tried both the 11- and the suggested 99- location (Gentoo wiki suggests that as well) but it seems like it isn't even reading that file! Can I somehow tell if it is actually reading it? --Svenstaro 18:07, 2 July 2009 (EDT)


Just an FYI, I'm in the process of doing a moderate rewrite of this article, hopefully simplifying and clarifying things. --Ronin-Sage 03:10, 16 June 2009 (EDT)
