Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Well, as in Ubuntu Gutsy, there is no support for xinput hotplug.

I can't find an existing bug number to track this issue.

Bug #181526 talks about a problem after manually enabling it - bug #173833 has some comments related to xinput hotplug - but is mainly about different problems.

In Debian is related to the missing xinput hotplug support in current versions.

input device hotplug support is available in xorg since 2006/11 ( ).

We'll use this bug as the master for the input-hotplug feature implementation.

We evaluated input hotplug during Hardy development but found it was not sufficiently mature for use. Upstream also feels input-hotplug needs a lot more work to get it ready for widespread use. We hope to see it ready for Intrepid but we'll have to see.

We've decided to switch this on in 2 weeks, after Timo and I each return from our vacations. Updating milestone accordingly.
