Cannot Locate A Core Pointer Device

If no devices become available, reconfigure HAL or disable AllowEmptyInput. (WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory) (II) No APM support in BIOS or kernel (II) System resource What am i doing wrong? It should no longer be seen on any recent X server release since the required fonts are now builtin to libXfont. Please also check for messages like: (WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"\ . http://ecoflashapps.com/cannot-locate/cannot-locate-a-core-pointer-device-ubuntu.html

Please note: Usually the server refuses to start if there is no core pointer device. If adjusting the paths in the xorg.conf file didn't fix it, try the following. I don't know if it's related to the patch or others problems, i didn't found any bug describing this problem, so i send you my log. So you need to get your font server up and running before you start X.

Quote Postby swggy » 2007/05/06 19:37:36 Thanks for the response. To have a good selection of standard fonts you should have at least the directories listed above. In CentOS the mouse0 is in the dev/input/ directory

Change the option "device" line to /dev/input/mouse0

copy the file as follows

# cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.confAnyway It is recommended that the Xserver loads the fonts directly.

In both cases neither mouse nor keyboard work, Xorg starts fine. Does it work OK? cd /usr/share/fonts/misc mkfontscale . Well, would you make an exception this time to test it? > What else could I test? > Maybe check some hal logging?

However if /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/ is missing the cursor and the fixed fonts are missing, too, therefore the server cannot start. Please try to extend these ranges carefully until you get a working mode.

This number needs to be unique on the system, so you cannot run two servers on one system with identical display numbers. Message: "Unable to locate/open config file" You are getting the message: (EE) Unable to locate/open config file (EE) Error from xf86HandleConfigFile() This means that the Xserver cannot find a configuration file Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this. it means that this font path element either does not exist or isn't readable.

Xservers usually listen at tcp port 6000+, therefore if you have started your Xserver with the command line option :1 it will be listening on port 6001. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=76933 If you don't, you will have problems detecting mice and video hardware.

It either doesn't exist, in which case you'll additionally see the message: (EE) Unable to locate /etc/X11/xorg.conf config file or your config file contains a typo. Thx.

Waiting for further steps . . . The Debian package xfonts-base puts these fonts in /usr/share/fonts/X11. Im puzzled. Check This Out Does it work well with 'my' kernels? (I do not know hal) Comment 13 Michal Schmidt 2009-10-01 11:50:51 EDT (In reply to comment #12) > I do not use `standard` kernels.

Code: Section "Module" Load "evdev" EndSection and then try starting the X-Server. This can cause the X server to not find the alias of 'fixed' to whatever is the actual fixed font. Another reason for this error may be that you have created a configuration file but it is not in the correct location.

It essentially rebuilds the fonts.dir and fonts.scale files and force refreshes the cache.

Fatal server error: no screens found In most cases this means there are no video modes available for your configuration. Axiously waiting for some expert guidance. Thanks.

You can solve it by deleting some of the highest resolutions of the deepest colour mode in the Screen section of your xorg.conf, or even the whole last Display subsection. For each rejected mode you can see in the log file the reason for rejection: ...
