I wish it were that simple, but... it does use the HID. And it detects x/y/z
axes and 7 buttons (the mouse has two buttons and a wheel). There seems to be
no info relevant to the Z axis in the 6 bytes that the debugging info prints.
When I move the wheel, it looks just the same as before.
The mouse is spec'd to work with standard mouse drivers, so I wouldn't think
that there would be any magic going on, but I suppose it's possible that it
plays to the quirks of another mouse. Maybe FreeBSD supports those quirks, but
if it does, it does so by vendor/device id. I'm probably asking, more than
anything else, if anyone is familiar with quirks that produce similar problems
to those that I'm having.
No one's life, liberty, or property are safe
while the legislature is in session.
