I tried sending this to freebsd-hardware, but nobody replied, so I thought I would try here, as well.
On one of my machines, I'm running FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT (last built on Jan 15th, 2004). I recently purchased a "Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop," which is a wireless setup with a PS/2 keyboard and a USB mouse (with a USB->PS/2 converter, if I need it). The system recognizes both the keyboard and mouse during boot (and the keyboard actually works right from the loader): ] ums0: Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop\M-. 1.00, rev ] 2.00/73.73, addr 2, iclass 3/1 ] ums0: 5 buttons ] atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> port 0x64,0x60 irq 1 on acpi0 ] atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0 ] kbd0 at atkbd0 The system also correctly detects when the USB mouse is unplugged and plugged back in: ] ums0: at uhub0 port 1 (addr 2) disconnected ] ums0: detached moused starts just fine (automatically) during the system boot, and XF86, using /dev/sysmouse, starts without complaining about anything. "XFree86 -config" detects the mouse as sysmouse, as well. Unfortunately, the mouse doesn't respond at all. On the console & in X, I get the mouse pointer in the center of the screen, but it doesn't respond to the movement of the mouse. When I plug in a regular, non-wireless USB mouse (an IntelliMouse Explorer, to be precise), it's detected as /dev/ums1 and works just fine both on the console (with moused running) and in X. ] ums1: Microsoft Microsoft 5-Button Mouse with IntelliEye(TM), rev ] 1.10/3.00, addr 3, iclass 3/1 ] ums1: 5 buttons and Z dir. So, I'm assuming my kernel & USB configurations are correct. I've tried killing moused and starting X using the ums0 device directly, but that didn't work either. Plugging the mouse cord on the wireless receiver into the PS/2 mouse port doesn't seem to have any effect on the matter -- the system detects a mouse on the psm0 port, but it still doesn't respond to movement. Has anybody else seen a similar problem? Any suggestions as to what to do next? Nothing I've tried seems to be working and I could use all the help I can get... - Jamie _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
