about usb mice again


I know there are lots of previous posts on how to make the usb mice and keyboard work on QNX 6.21, but:

1.there are many different posts and I don’t know which one works
2.I’m totally new to QNX as I’m just a student and I’ve got problems understanding them

Is it ok if someone told me which one works and tell me where and how to ‘type in those things’ to patch the system please please??

Thanks!!! :laughing:

waitfor /dev/io-usb/io-usb
io-hid -d usb &
waitfor /dev/io-hid/io-hid


Then copy and paste this into your /usr/bin/ph file, at the end just before the “unset USER_NAME” line:


devi-hid mouse &


I still don’t have wheel support, but I can live without it for now. It does have 3 button support though, which is nice in Firefox.

Oh, by the way, I’m using 6.3 for the script above. I don’t know if it’ll work the same in 6.2.
