Well done for getting it working. Sorry I didn't offer any helpful
suggestions but I had no clue what the problem was. However, the way
you fixed it suggests that there was a problem with
the /usr/X11/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf file. Perhaps it was
some unprintable character that doesn't show up in a text editor? Or
maybe something to do with locale or language settings?
Thanks for posting how you fixed the problem.
