I have a PC that shall run one single program. So I decided to go with startx instead of a whole Desktop Environment. The machine is a 64bit debian stretch machine.

I have edited my .xinitrc to launch the program, which works just fine (the program runs in fullscreen). The mouse works as expected, but the keyboard is not responding in any way.

The use is in the input group.

Here is the idfor the user:

uid=1007(foifoi) gid=1009(foifoi) Gruppen=1009(foifoi),5(tty),20(dialout),24(cdrom),29(audio),44(video),46(plugdev),60(games),100(users),106(input),108(netdev),122(mlocate),1001(smbaccess),1008(maenners)

Here is the Xorg.log (could not post because too long): https://pastebin.com/JsrzdHju

Here are the installed packages (xorg related):

I have no xorg.conf. The evdev module is loaded properly. Here is also the output of xinput:

What am I missing?

    Do you have keyboard events in sudo evemu-record or sudo libinput debug-events? – user1686 Dec 29 '18 at 15:02
