resourceproto and scrnsaverproto makedepends should be replaced by xorgproto to be able to build this.

Current libinput-1.11 (preferred over evdev in default xorg configuration) indeed has debouncing enabled by default, done in a bit more complex way (as documented with svg state graphs in doc/ there), but has hardcoded timeouts (25ms/12ms).

So unless these default timeouts are sufficiently long, it requires patching just like this driver, unfortunately.

Looks like Peter is finally creating this functionality upstream:

Perfect! Installed without any errors on my system. Such a relieve to get my favorite mouse back under control. Thank you so very much!

I updated the PKGBUILD according to what Erroneous said in the previous comment. Works fine on my computer.

I got it to work by changing the pkgver to 2.10.3 and adding xf86-input-driver to the provides.

Nowadays pacman -U will remove conflicting packages, so just don't do a pacman -R before you install the package.

Hi Dudes,
how does this patch work? Cannot install it unless i remove xf86-input-evdev and keyboard isnt working than. What have i to edit in the pkgbuild? and what das this makepkg -srcfi mean? Ty for answers wont buy a new mouse ;-)

The workaround is learning how to edit a PKGBUILD.

This package conflicts with evdev. I managed to install it by first removing the old evdev with:

pacman -Rdd xf86-input-evdev

...which was a bad idea because although the debounce fixed the mouse problem, my keyboard stopped working. Is this meant to be installed overtop of evdev, not as a replacement? If so, how should it be installed?

Another hypothesis is that the keyboard problem has to do with the package being out of date (2.9.2-1 vs 2.10.0-2).
