UMS(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			UMS(4)

NAME
     ums -- USB	mouse driver

SYNOPSIS
     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"

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.

     The /dev/ums0 device presents the mouse as	a sysmouse or mousesystems
     type device.  See moused(8) for an	explanation of these mouse types.

FILES
     /dev/ums0	blocking device	node

EXAMPLES
     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
