I've been helping others configuring X11 with UDEV/evdev for quite some
time now. Since UDEV recently became the default option on 12.1, I
thought that having something automated (yet non-intrusive) to
help users fix their setup might be useful.
To achieve this, I created a small/hacky script today that checks all
the usual problems I found while helping people figuring out what's
wrong with their setup.
You can find it on github:
Direct download link:
Usage: ./xorg-udev-setup-check.sh [-hdpi]
-h print this help
-d skip drm checks
-p skip package version checks
-i only show errors (suppress info)
You should be able to run it as an unprivileged user - fixing things
will require root privileges though.
I didn't test it thoroughly, so feel free to open pull requests
on github - functional improvements only please, don't try to improve
the code quality.
