Xorg-server 1.10 Upgrade Guide


1.  Feature changes

  • Xorg no longer does autodetect devices using xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse. If you want your input devices hotplugged, please migrate your settings to the xf86-input-evdev driver.

2.  Migrating from xorg-server 1.9

The configuration of xorg-server-1.9 is still valid for 1.10, and does not require any modifications to work with the new version.

3.  Migrating from older xorg-server

Remember to read respective older guides in between this version and older version you are migrating from. E.g.: If you're upgrading from xorg-server-1.7, then you should read the xorg-server-1.8 and xorg-server-1.9 migration guides first.

Links to all guides are availible on our project page.
