Libinput now enabled as default xorg driver for F-22 workstation installs  
Hi All,

As described here we've been working on making xorg-x11-drv-libinput the default input driver for the Xorg xserver under Fedora 22. All the necessary changes for this are in place for the GNOME and KDE desktops. So starting with the next Fedora 22 compose new Fedora 22 Workstation installations will be using xorg-x11-drv-libinput instead of the -evdev and -synaptics drivers.

For existing installations the move to libinput will not happen automatically, as  we have not added a hard dependency on xorg-x11-drv-libinput so the XFCE, LXDE, etc. spins can keep using the old drivers until they have adopted their mouse/touchpad configuration settings tools to also work with xorg-x11-drv-libinput.

If you're running F-22 with GNOME or KDE, please do the following to switch to the new driver:

"sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-libinput"

And let us know if you experience any issues while using the new driver.
