After installing Mate desktop environment on a fresh FreeBSD 10.2 box, mouse was not working. This is what I have in my /etc/rc.conf:
... moused_enable="YES" hald_enable="YES" dbus_enable="YES"
Some suggests that the order of hald and dbus be swapped around. I tried that, and it didn’t work.
A bit of more Googlings, I found out a working solution. I need to install:
Here’s how I did it:
# portmaster x11/drivers/xf86-input-mouse
And that’s all required to be done. If your keyboard is not working in Xorg, you might want to also install
