[SOLVED] xf86-input-libinput 1.2.0 not recognizing keyboard/mouse

Problem: With X server display (e.g. sddm or launching i3 directly), neither keyboard nor mouse respond. Attempting to switch to a tty via Ctrl-Alt-F2 does nothing, either. WIthout X server display, keyboard input works correctly, so the problem is directly related to the new package version, xf86-input-libinput 1.2.0.

Workaround: Downgrading back to xf86-input-libinput 1.1.0 fixes the issue temporarily, though it is a ticking time bomb...

Question: How do I get xf86-input-libinput 1.2.0 to detect input?

Re: [SOLVED] xf86-input-libinput 1.2.0 not recognizing keyboard/mouse

xorg log? https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg#General

Can you ssh into the system?
Do the devices then still produce input on "libinput debug-events"?

xf86-input-libinput was bumped ~1 month ago… is your system fully upated (except for xf86-input-libinput)?
Which kernel do you run?

Re: [SOLVED] xf86-input-libinput 1.2.0 not recognizing keyboard/mouse

Solution: ensure the latest libinput is installed...!

Apparently, I had installed libinput-multiplier from the AUR which I forgot to update. Thus, updating to the latest version of anything that provides libinput solves everything.

For reference, /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
