WMT(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			WMT(4)

NAME
     wmt -- MS Windows 7/8/10 -	compatible USB HID multi-touch device driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines into
     your kernel configuration file:

	   device wmt
	   device usb
	   device evdev

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   wmt_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The wmt driver provides support for the MS	Windows	7/8/10 - compatible
     USB HID multi-touch devices found in many laptops.

     To	get multi-touch	device working in X(7),	install
     ports/x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev.

FILES
     wmt creates a pseudo-device file, /dev/input/eventX which presents	the
     multi-touch device	as an input event device.

SEE ALSO
     usb(4), loader.conf(5), xorg.conf(5) (ports/x11/xorg), evdev(4)
     (ports/x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev).

AUTHORS
     The wmt driver was	written	by Vladimir Kondratyev <wulf@FreeBSD.org>.

BUGS
     wmt works only with touchscreens now.  Neither pens nor touchpads are
     supported.

     wmt cannot	act like sysmouse(4), as sysmouse(4) does not support absolute
     motion events.
