[SOLVED] Xorg config doesn't work if I don't use the NVIDIA driver

I'm trying to do GPU passthrough so I want to load the VFIO driver for my nvidia card. When I do this, my xorg config is no longer being read. I have a GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB Max-Q on an ASUS FX505DD.

Here's my config, I believe it has no errors because it works as expected when `nvidia` is the driver used.

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "libinput mouse"
	MatchIsPointer "on"
	Driver "libinput"
	Option "AccelProfile" "flat"
	Option "TransformationMatrix" "0.30 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.30 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "libinput touchpad"
	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
	Driver "libinput"
	Option "Tapping" "on"
	Option "NaturalScrolling" "on"
EndSection

I change the driver by putting this in `/etc/modprobe.d/vfio.conf`:

options vfio-pci ids=10de:1c91,10de:0fb9

and this in `/etc/mkinitcpio.conf`:

# vim:set ft=sh
# MODULES
# The following modules are loaded before any boot hooks are
# run.  Advanced users may wish to specify all system modules
# in this array.  For instance:
#     MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs)
# MODULES=()
MODULES=(vfio vfio_iommu_type1 vfio_pci vfio_virqfd)

...

and then running `mkinitcpio`

So that when I run `lspci -nnk` I get

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB Max-Q] [10de:1c91] (rev a1)
	Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:18f1]
	Kernel driver in use: vfio-pci
	Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia

But if I do that, my xorg config is no longer being read. Here's the part of my xorg log that I think is relevant (full log: https://pastebin.com/BBBQ12QG )

If I don't do this (`nvidia` is the driver being used)

$ lspci -nnk

	Kernel driver in use: nvidia

...

And the config is loaded (my touchpad supports tapping). For some reason the xorg log shows some error while loading the touchpad driver even though it works as expected: (full log: https://pastebin.com/bCTvKgcT )

Re: [SOLVED] Xorg config doesn't work if I don't use the NVIDIA driver

Not an answer to your main question, but both your configuration sections match your touchpad. Try adding

MatchIsTouchpad "off"

to the first one so X doesn't try to apply your mouse settings to your touchpad, too.

Re: [SOLVED] Xorg config doesn't work if I don't use the NVIDIA driver

I figured it out -- apparently xorg runs privileged when I have NVIDIA enabled, and unprivileged when I don't.

So it was able to read the config file when I had NVIDIA enabled, and it wasn't when I didn't.

I fixed this by `chmod +r`-ing the `.conf` file, and this has fixed it.
