I'm going to try the second choice, leaving them in /opt/modular
and do "ln -s /opt/modular/bin/Xorg /usr/bin/X"
Do I need add /opt/modular/lib to /etc/
In my original xserver, xorg.conf doesn't set the path of the keyboard and mouse,
but keyboard and mouse work. In my new xserver, if I didn't set the path of the
keyboard, it wouldn't work. Now, the keyboard works in my new xserver after
I set the path in xorg.conf. However, no mattar how I set the path of the mouse,
it won't work. I set the path as /dev/input/by-path/xxxxxxx-mouse in xorg.conf.
In Xorg.0.log, it said it couldn't find device which matchs "mouse".
