 28.Dt UKBD 4
 29.Os
 30.Sh NAME
 31.Nm ukbd
 32.Nd USB keyboard driver
 33.Sh SYNOPSIS
 34To compile this driver into the kernel,
 35place the following line in your
 36kernel configuration file:
 37.Bd -ragged -offset indent
 38.Cd "device ukbd"
 39.Ed
 40.Pp
 41Alternatively, to load the driver as a
 42module at boot time, place the following line in
 43.Xr loader.conf 5 :
 44.Bd -literal -offset indent
 45ukbd_load="YES"
 46.Ed
 47.Sh DESCRIPTION
 48The
 49.Nm
 50driver provides support for keyboards that attach to the USB port.
 51.Xr usb 4
 52and one of
 53.Xr uhci 4
 54or
 55.Xr ohci 4
 56must be configured in the kernel as well.
 57.Sh CONFIGURATION
 58By default, the keyboard subsystem does not create the appropriate devices yet.
 59Make sure you reconfigure your kernel with the following option in the kernel
 60config file:
 61.Pp
 62.Dl "options KBD_INSTALL_CDEV"
 63.Pp
 64If both an AT keyboard USB keyboards are used at the same time, the
 65AT keyboard will appear as
 66.Pa kbd0
 67in
 68.Pa /dev .
 69The USB keyboards will be
 70.Pa kbd1 , kbd2 ,
 71etc.
 72You can see some information about the keyboard with the following command:
 73.Pp
 74.Dl "kbdcontrol -i < /dev/kbd1"
 75.Pp
 76or load a keymap with
 77.Pp
 78.Dl "kbdcontrol -l keymaps/pt.iso < /dev/kbd1"
 79.Pp
 80See
 81.Xr kbdcontrol 1
 82for more possible options.
 83.Pp
 84You can swap console keyboards by using the command
 85.Pp
 86.Dl "kbdcontrol -k /dev/kbd1"
 87.Pp
 88From this point on, the first USB keyboard will be the keyboard
 89to be used by the console.
 90.Pp
 91If you want to use a USB keyboard as your default and not use an AT keyboard at
 92all, you will have to remove the
 93.Cd "device atkbd"
 94line from the kernel configuration file.
 95Because of the device initialization order,
 96the USB keyboard will be detected
 97.Em after
 98the console driver
 99initializes itself and you have to explicitly tell the console
100driver to use the existence of the USB keyboard.
101This can be done in
102one of the following two ways.
103.Pp
104Run the following command as a part of system initialization:
105.Pp
106.Dl "kbdcontrol -k /dev/kbd0 < /dev/ttyv0 > /dev/null"
107.Pp
108(Note that as the USB keyboard is the only keyboard, it is accessed as
109.Pa /dev/kbd0 )
110or otherwise tell the console driver to periodically look for a
111keyboard by setting a flag in the kernel configuration file:
112.Pp
113.Dl "device sc0 at isa? flags 0x100"
114.Pp
115With the above flag, the console driver will try to detect any
116keyboard in the system if it did not detect one while it was
117initialized at boot time.
118.Sh DRIVER CONFIGURATION
119.D1 Cd "options KBD_INSTALL_CDEV"
120.Pp
121Make the keyboards available through a character device in
122.Pa /dev .
123.Pp
124.D1 Cd options UKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP
125.D1 Cd makeoptions UKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP=fr.iso
126.Pp
127The above lines will put the French ISO keymap in the ukbd driver.
128You can specify any keymap in
129.Pa /usr/share/syscons/keymaps
130with this option.
131.Pp
132.D1 Cd "options KBD_DISABLE_KEYMAP_LOADING"
133.Pp
134Do not allow the user to change the keymap.
135Note that these options also affect the AT keyboard driver,
136.Xr atkbd 4 .
137.Sh FILES
138.Bl -tag -width ".Pa /dev/kbd*" -compact
139.It Pa /dev/kbd*
140blocking device nodes
141.El
142.Sh EXAMPLES
143.D1 Cd "device ukbd"
144.Pp
145Add the
146.Nm
147driver to the kernel.
