keyboard - Keyboard input driver
keyboard is an Xorg input driver for keyboards. The driver supports
the standard OS-provided keyboard interface.
The keyboard driver functions as a keyboard input device, and may be
used as the X server’s core keyboard.
This driver is built-in to the core X server, and multiple instances
are not supported. A loadable driver, kbd, is available, and is
planned to replace the keyboard driver in a future release of the Xorg
