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.
Ah, now that _does_ WFM, and that fact makes me suspect that the problem lies with the USB driver rather than the mouse driver.
What are your mouse settings in rc.conf and XFree86config?
At the moment, all I have in /etc/rc.conf is:
moused_enable="yes" moused_type="auto" moused_port="/dev/psm0" moused_flags="" allscreens_flags="-m on" # Enables the mouse on the console
That seems to detect the mouse properly and starts moused with the correct port.
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse" EndSection
Identifier "Mouse1" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "sysmouse" Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse" Option "Buttons" "5" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
and, at the end of the file:
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
The above make it work when plugged into the PS/2 port.
I've also tried killing moused and pointing the Device to /dev/ums, but that didn't seem to make a difference.
I really think it would be worth getting this problem solved as MS cordless mice are very popular.
They're not only popular, they're almost the only thing you can buy anymore. I wanted a corded keyboard and mouse for work, but the only models manufacturers put out with cords anymore (for keyboards, anyhow), if they sell one at all (Are you listening, Logitech? You bastards...) feel like crap to type on. But this isn't the place for that rant.
Also, to address Lucas Holt's comment, the keyboard & mouse combo I'm trying to get working at work is the infrared model. I have the Bluetooth model keyboard/mouse at home, but it's not connected to a BSD box. I'm still puzzled why the wireless keyboard would work fine, but the wireless mouse, which uses the same receiver, doesn't.
