I have a MS Optical USB cordless mouse on my 5.2.1 box, connected to a
Belkin OmniCube 4-port kvm switch with a usb-ps2 adapter, and it works
great in both X and console windows. My XF86Config mouse section looks
like this -
Option "Protocol" "SysMouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZaxisMapping" "4 5"
# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.
And my rc.conf contains these lines -
I wonder now if the usbd_enable line is even needed since the mouse is
being run thru the ps2 adapter.
On the bottom of my mouse it says 'Wireless Optical Mouse Blue'. I
haven't made any mods/changes to the kernel, it is completely generic.
