Comment 27 for bug 42553

Making the dexconf conditional on the presence of /dev/input/wacom is actually pretty simple (see attached patch).

However, as others point out in this and other wacom threads, this obviously would break things for wacom users who did not have their wacom attached when they boot the system, so this patch would exchange warnings for a bug. Not good.

In any case, the patch works for me to remove the wacom entries from xorg.conf, in case anyone finds it of use.

Longer term, input hotplugging will be added to xserver itself, and once the wacom driver supports hotplugging, then we can safely drop this entirely.
