#1193 closed System Defect (fixed)

xinput disables both my touchpad and my USB wireless mouse.

Description

I just switched from FreeBSD to PC-BSD (I love Cinnamon). In FreeBSD I could disable my PS/2 Synaptics Touchpad with "xinput set-prop <touchpad> "Device Enabled" 0". Now, whenever I use the same command with PC-BSD, both my touchpad and my wireless USB mouse are disabled, while I only disable "PS/2 Mouse". The output of 'xinput list' is attached.

According to this list I don't see any USB mouse connected. Maybe moused is catching it? Try adding moused_enable="NO" to /etc/rc.conf and reboot. Does it show your USB device now?

Windows 7 detects my wireless mouse as 2.4G RX.

Also, I can use my mouse, but disabling my touchpad disables it too.

Oh, so its in the keyboard section? Odd. Did you try disabling moused? We don't really do much different from FreeBSD in this case, just have different services enabled in /etc/rc.conf.pcbsd. You may want to check there and see if anything is different from how you originally configured it on FBSD.

Also, did you do a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf on your FreeBSD setup?

Disabling moused didn't work. Also, I had just added some fonts and changed the resolution in FreeBSD, I didn't change anything else.

I just tried to disable my wireless mouse (I don't know why) and the enter key is pressed continuously if I disable it, and I have to force shutdown PC-BSD.

Did you find any solutions? It's hard to type with the touchpad on...

Nope. 'xinput set-prop 8 "Device Enabled" 0' is identical to 'xinput set prop 8 125 0'.
(The second line of the output of xinput list-props 9 in the guide is Device Enabled (125): 0)

I FIXED IT
Disable moused, BUT also enable hw.psm.synaptics_support in /boot/loader.conf.
