[Solved] LinksKey KVM switch

Post by melloa » Tue Nov 20, 2018 4:24 pm

Hi guys,

I use a LinksKey LKV-7308 KVM switch on my workstations and can't make the mouse work with GhostBSD. I have to connect a 2nd mouse to it to be able to use it.

I do see this on dmesg with the KVM connected:
ugen2.3: <vendor 0x2188 USB OPTICAL MOUSE> at usbus2
ums0 on uhub4
ums0: <vendor 0x2188 USB OPTICAL MOUSE, class 0/0, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 3> on usbus2
ums0: 3 buttons and [XYZ] coordinates ID=0
So I think it sees the mouse connected to the KVM, just won't work.

I can connect another mouse direct to it and comes up immediately:
ugen2.3: <vendor 0x2188 USB OPTICAL MOUSE> at usbus2
ums0 on uhub3
ums0: <vendor 0x2188 USB OPTICAL MOUSE, class 0/0, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 3> on usbus2
ums0: 3 buttons and [XYZ] coordinates ID=0
Any ideas how I can get my KVM mouse working?

Thanks!

I never user KVM but I have found this on FreeBSD Forums

Code: Select all

echo 'ums_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf
I am not sure if it will work for you.
