This talk will present the different layers that
handle input, from the key that gets pressed or the
mouse motion to the applications, all the way through
the kernel drivers, X drivers and libraries, in the
case of the OpenBSD/NetBSD wscons driver and the
current and future X.Org server. It will cover stuff
like keyboard mappings, touch-screen calibration,
multi-pointer X or input coordinates transformations.
It will show some problems of current implementations
and try to show how current evolutions can solve
Matthieu Herrb is maintaing X on OpenBSD. I've been

Mac OS X,...) since 1989. He has been a member of

and is now a member of the X.Org Foundation BoD.
