#843 closed defect (fixed)

Drop usage of xorg void driver in xpra's xorg.conf

Reported by: jonathan.underwood Owned by: jonathan.underwood
Priority: major Milestone: 0.14
Component: server Version: 0.14.x
Keywords: Cc:


According to a redhat xorg maintainer:

"The use of the "void" input driver in xpra is obsolete. This driver existed to provide empty input devices back when the server required at least one pair of input devices to exist. That hasn't been true since server 1.6 (in 2007).

The only use of it seems to be in the xorg.conf where it can be safely removed i.e. both InputDevice? sections and the references in the ServerLayout?. The server will initialize a default device for both."

Milestone: 0.14
Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to jonathan.underwood

Done in r9165 for trunk, due to be released real-soon-now(tm).

Unfortunately, this won't go into the v0.14.x branch because we still support centos5, which ships with Xorg version 1.1

Can I close this ticket?

Sure - I mostly just wanted a second opinion that it was fine to remove. Thanks.

It's fine, just make sure you grab both changes (I made a mess of the first one): r9165 + r9166.

Briefly tested on fedora and centos6.
