A quick search should indicate the solution. Xorg prefers using HALD
for hardware access. If the Hal Daemon isn't running, regular
keyboard/mouse input won't work.
You can add the following to /etc/rc.conf to automatically start the HAL
and DBus daemons:
After adding, use the following commands to start the services:
Alternatively, you can add the following line to the ServerLayout
section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
Hope this helps.
