Description : consolation linux console pointer support
This package provides pointer support to the linux console for
copy-paste and scrolling.
It is based on the libinput library and supports all pointer devices and
settings provided by this library.
The motivation beind this is that modern touchpads are poorly supported
by GPM, and GPM itself is considered unmaintainable.
Consolation use of libinput allow for touchpads support on par with the
X and Wayland drivers.
(Help with improving the description is welcome)
