Install libinput by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static && make
If you have the optional Check-0.9.14 and Valgrind-3.10.1
packages installed, the regression tests can be run as the
root user with
make -C test check-TESTS. Be
warned though - the test suite will generate a lot of
keyboard/mouse input events, so if you are using a desktop it may
issue unwanted clicks or keyboard input in the application that
mouse and keyboard are currently focused on. It also generates a
lot of kernel input events which may crash some programs that
listen for input events due to the large number of events appearing
Now, as the
install -v -dm755 /usr/share/doc/libinput-0.10.0 && cp -rv doc/html/* /usr/share/doc/libinput-0.10.0
switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
