I don`t really know how it work, but these are the steps I did to make it work:
In xorg there is two ways of having input devices like keyboard and mouse, via
evdev, that will auto detect the devices but it need udev, or by mannualy setting 
So install xf86-input-mouse and xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-synaptics if 
you use touchpad.
Clone this repo,
 wich have some skel_files that help you and a lot of information
Copy the mdev.conf to /etc/mdev.conf (I don`t know if this file is different from
the default one, butit works)
Now you need to create the conf files in xorg.conf.d, copy the xorg.conf.d/ files 
of the repo to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, you can delete 20-touchpad.conf if you don`t
 use it.
It probably will work now, you also can customize the files if you want.
