NAME
     ums -- USB	mouse driver

SYNOPSIS
     device ums

DESCRIPTION
     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.  usb
     and one of	uhci or	ohci must be configured	in the kernel as well.

     The /dev/ums device presents the mouse as a sysmouse or mousesystems type
     device.  See moused for an	explanation of these mouse types.

FILES
     /dev/ums0	blocking device	node

EXAMPLES
	   device ums

     Add the ums driver	to the kernel.

	   moused -p /dev/ums0 -t auto

     Use the first USB mouse on	the system as your console mouse.

     Change the	"Pointer" section in XF86Config	to the following

	   Device /dev/ums0
	   Protocol Auto

     to	be able	to use the USB mouse under X. When using the XiG accelerated X
     server, change the	mouse device to	/dev/ums0 and the mouse	type to	"Mous-
     eSystems".

     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

     For XFree86 3.3.1 the entry should	be:

	   Device /dev/sysmouse
	   Protocol MouseSystems
