I just installed FreeBSD and I love it, the only inconvenience that I have is that the multimedia keys of my keyboard aren't working. I have followed a lot of of guides but still they aren't working nor being recognized.
I got my hands on a nice new laptop, and I'm trying to install 13.0-RELEASE on it. But I'm experiencing weird issues that I have no idea how to troubleshoot (I last had any issues of that kind more than 5 years ago, so my brain has rusted on that topic since). The weird issue is: When I'm at the...
Simple enough, current FreeBSD 12.0
# a mouse
devd_enable="YES" # Run devd, to trigger programs on device tree changes.
#devd_flags="-d" # Additional flags for devd(8).

Getting back into FreeBSD, installed 12.0-RELEASE on a Raspberry Pi 3. Works for a little while until my usb keyboard starts repeating the previous keystroke for no reason, randomly.
Tried the same keyboard on a Beaglebone Black with 12.0-RELEASE, no sign of issues. I like the Pi though...
So this is a long story.
Last week i've upgraded from a ML110 G5 -> ML110 G6.
I've been using FreeBSD for quite a while and been happy with it for a long time.
I've read multiple threads about the ML110G6 being unable to use the keyboard at the BSD Bootloader.
I have an Input Club K-Type keyboard that does not work correctly under FreeBSD. It is recognized as:
ugen0.4: <Input Club Keyboard - K-Type PixelMap pjrcUSB full> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON (500mA)
but when I type on it, random characters are inserted. It works...
55717 describes my problem perfectly, and I went through the steps to fix it, but still couldn't get it to work.
The issue is that either keypresses don't register or they register incorrectly (w becomes a, etc). To add to what's in the thread above, this appears to be related somewhat to how...
I'm having some strange behavior with my USB keyboard in FreeBSD. After booting, slim loads, and when I try to enter my user name, one of two things happens; either the pressed key doesn't appear, or it will act as though the key is being held down and repeat that character several times, even...
I'm interested in using FreeBSD on my desktop, but the keyboard might be a problem. During installation I thought the keyboard wasn't detected at all but after some testing through virtual machines and connecting the keyboard to a FreeBSD laptop, I've found out that 95% of the keys don't do...
So, I have this old Dell Dimension 8250 (2.4GHz P4, 768M RAM) that I wanted to install FreeBSD 10.2 on to see how well it might work as a desktop. I got the thing setup and put my old USB keyboard and mouse on it (Logitech G510).
I enabled USB emulation in the BIOS, figuring it would be needed...
