I'm rather new to Freebsd and yesterday I did a "pkg upgrade"
after which the touchpad on my Lenovo R61 is no longer
responsive. There is also some oddities with my keyboard such
as the arrow up key not working anymore.
- Running xev shows no reaction when touching the touchpad.
- Xorg.0.log shows no errors or warnings.
- moused is running as I can plug in a USB mouse and have it
I unplugged the usb mouse and ran the command:
$ sudo /usr/sbin/moused -p /dev/sysmouse -t auto
as I surmise that /dev/sysmouse refers to the touchpad(?)
but moused responds with
moused: unable to get status of mouse fd: inappropiate ioctl
The output from Xorg -version:

The output from uname -mrs:

My desktop system is xfce4, version 4.14.
About 200 packages were upgraded and I'd love to supply a list
but I don't know where the log for this is kept(?)
Anyone to help me getting my touchpad back?
