ums — USB mouse driver
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device ums device uhci device ohci device usb Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): ums_load="YES"
The ums driver provides support for mice that attach to the USB port. Supported are mice with any number of buttons and mice with a wheel. The /dev/ums0 device presents the mouse as a sysmouse or mousesystems type device. See moused(8) for an explanation of these mouse types.
The following variables are available as both sysctl(8) variables and loader(8) tunables: hw.usb.ums.debug Debug output level, where 0 is debugging disabled and larger values increase debug message verbosity. Default is 0.
/dev/ums0 blocking device node
Use the first USB mouse on the system as your console mouse: moused -p /dev/ums0 -t auto To be able to use the USB mouse under X, change the "Pointer" section in xorg.conf to the following: Device /dev/ums0 Protocol Auto If you want to be able to use the mouse in both virtual consoles as well as in X change it to: Device /dev/sysmouse Protocol Auto
The ums driver was written by Lennart Augustsson <email@example.com> for NetBSD and was adopted for FreeBSD by MAEKAWA Masahide <firstname.lastname@example.org>. This manual page was written by Nick Hibma <n_hibma@FreeBSD.org> with input from Kazutaka YOKOTA <email@example.com>.
