Just installed openSuSE 15.3, trying Wayland for a defult window manager.

Unfortunately, xinput is not working. Firstly, even though the defice is
detected properly by the usb system:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 047d:1020 Kensington Expert Mouse Trackball

It does not show with xinput:

 Virtual core pointer		       	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    Virtual core XTEST pointer          id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    xwayland-pointer:17                 id=6	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    xwayland-relative-pointer:17        id=7	[slave  pointer  (2)]

So, .. swapping 1 and 2 has no effect:

$ xinput get-button-map 7
2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Can't figure if this is a problem with xinput getting ignored, .. or
Wayland not detecting the device properly.

Any Wayland folks here?
