NAME

       usbmgr.conf - Config file for usbmgr

DESCRIPTION

       usbmgr.conf  is  the  main configuration file for usbmgr daemon, it has
       the proper entries to support a  wide  list  of  USB  devices  and  the
       required usb kernel module to make them work.

       Standard  usbmgr  distribution already has a list of well known devices
       and their proper entries, so you don’t need  to  edit  it  to  have  it
       working.

       In  case  you  want or need to add a new device, you can do it with the
       help of dump_usbdev, it aids you in writing usbmgr.conf.  After  usbmgr
       has  been  started,  running dump_usbdev will dump infomation about all
       attached devices in a format suitable for usbmgr.conf.

       If you connect USB devices to your USB HUB, you’ll see a line like  the
       following.

       -------------------------------------------------------------
       class 0x9 subclass 0x0 protocol 0x0 module <module_name>
       -------------------------------------------------------------

       "class  0x9"  means  USB HUB. If no USB devices are connected, only the
       root  HUB  will  appear.  Modifying  "<module_name>"  would  make   the
       configuration  for this device(HUB) complete. In the case of a HUB, you
       should change  "module_name"  to  "none"  because  the  HUB  driver  is
       included in usbcore.

       After  a  USB  mouse has been connected to the HUB, running dump_usbdev
       will give you the following.

       -------------------------------------------------------------
       class 0x9 subclass 0x0 protocol 0x0 module <module_name>
       vendor 0x56e product 0x4 module <module_name>
       -------------------------------------------------------------

       The 2nd line is new. This is the infomation about the  USB  mouse.  The
       USB   mouse   requires   the   "hid"   and   "mousedev"   drivers.  So,
       "<module_name>" should be changed to "hid , mousedev". So the  complete
       usbmgr.conf entry would look like this:

       -------------------------------------------------------------
       class 0x9 subclass 0x0 protocol 0x0 module none
       vendor 0x56e product 0x4 module hid , mousedev
       -------------------------------------------------------------

       You  should  copy  this  into  /etc/usbmgr/usbmgr.conf,  and  then  run
       update_usbdb to create the configuration data.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       None.
