Plexcon, I don't understand spanish but translation suggests plugging in the joystick causes the mouse cursor to jump erratically.


Try adding these lines to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-joystick.conf :

Option "StartKeysEnabled" "False"
Option "StartMouseEnabled" "False"

Da muchos problemas: Me desconfiguraba el joystick y tomaba el mando sobre el ratón. La flecha se subía arriba del todo de la pantalla : (

Glad to see you check things.

TL;DR : i checked the key and found it trustworthy for this package.


gpg --recv-key is the correct approach as it just downloads the key.

I checked the key, found it belonged to peter hutterer and he is indeed an X.org developer.
In the pkgbuild i added his key as a trusted key for this pacakge only by using validgpgkeys.

If you imported the key, then commented out the validgpgkeys part in pkgbuild and try to build, makepkg will abort with :
==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
xf86-input-joystick-1.6.3.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (the public key 3C2C43D9447D5938EF4551EBE23B7E70B467F0BF is not trusted) .

Here is a user-level workaround. I'm not really sure how trustworthy the signature is.

gpg --recv-key E23B7E70B467F0BF

I have received this error when updating on multiple machines.
ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
