     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):


     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.

     /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

     ohci(4), sysmouse(4), uhci(4), usb(4), xorg.conf(5) (ports/x11/xorg),

     The ums driver was written by Lennart Augustsson
     ⟨⟩ for NetBSD and was adopted for FreeBSD by
     MAEKAWA Masahide ⟨⟩.

     This manual page was written by Nick Hibma ⟨⟩ with
     input from Kazutaka YOKOTA ⟨⟩.
