Guys..got a little issue with xorg and the evdev driver in Gnome. I
have a Logitech keyboard (standard 105 US layout + multimedia keys with
function lock). This issue has been reported several times as evidence
shown by Google.
Here is a real good description of the problem:
Note that I haven't tested yet, but my tentative suggestion is that we
move forward with evdev-2.1.0 and the 4 patches listed for xorg server
in the release announcement for evdev (after testing).
As a side effect, this will remove the Allow Empty Input workaround
added to the xorg config page, however, it is not Xorg-7.4 proper. The
alternative is to roll back to an old evdev driver, but this does not
fix the event grabbing issue in xorg-server-1.5.3 for which the previous
workaround was added.
Comments? Suggestions? Objections?
