How do I use remote X displays?
Context English Norwegian Bokmål State
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>service devfs restart</userinput>
My mouse has a fancy wheel. Can I use it in X?
Yes, if X is configured for a 5 button mouse. To do this, add the lines <literal>Buttons 5</literal> and <literal>ZAxisMapping 4 5</literal> to the <quote>InputDevice</quote> section of <filename>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</filename>, as seen in this example:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
The mouse can be enabled in <application>Emacs</application> by adding these lines to <filename>~/.emacs</filename>: ZFS TRIM er aktivert som standard, og kan slås av ved å legge denne linjen til <filename>/etc/sysctl.conf</filename>:
;; wheel mouse
(global-set-key [mouse-4] 'scroll-down)
(global-set-key [mouse-5] 'scroll-up)
My laptop has a Synaptics touchpad. Can I use it in X?
Yes, after configuring a few things to make it work.
In order to use the Xorg synaptics driver, first remove <literal>moused_enable</literal> from <filename>rc.conf</filename>.
To enable synaptics, add the following line to <filename>/boot/loader.conf</filename>:
Add the following to <filename>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</filename>:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Touchpad0"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Protocol" "psm"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0"
And be sure to add the following into the <quote>ServerLayout</quote> section:
InputDevice "Touchpad0" "SendCoreEvents"
How do I use remote X displays?
For security reasons, the default setting is to not allow a machine to remotely open a window.
To enable this feature, start <application>X</application> with the optional <option>-listen_tcp</option> argument:
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>startx -listen_tcp</userinput>
What is a virtual console and how do I make more?
Virtual consoles provide several simultaneous sessions on the same machine without doing anything complicated like setting up a network or running X.
When the system starts, it will display a login prompt on the monitor after displaying all the boot messages. Type in your login name and password to start working on the first virtual console.
To start another session, perhaps to look at documentation for a program or to read mail while waiting for an FTP transfer to finish, hold down <keycap>Alt</keycap> and press <keycap>F2</keycap>. This will display the login prompt for the second virtual console. To go back to the original session, press <keycombo action="simul"><keycap>Alt</keycap><keycap>F1</keycap></keycombo>.
The default FreeBSD installation has eight virtual consoles enabled. <keycombo action="simul"><keycap>Alt</keycap><keycap>F1</keycap></keycombo>, <keycombo action="simul"><keycap>Alt</keycap><keycap>F2</keycap></keycombo>, <keycombo action="simul"><keycap>Alt</keycap><keycap>F3</keycap></keycombo>, and so on will switch between these virtual consoles.
To enable more of virtual consoles, edit <filename>/etc/ttys</filename> (see <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ttys</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>) and add entries for <filename>ttyv8</filename> to <filename>ttyvc</filename>, after the comment on <quote>Virtual terminals</quote>:
# Edit the existing entry for ttyv8 in /etc/ttys and change
# "off" to "on".
ttyv8 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" xterm on secure
ttyv9 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" xterm on secure
ttyva "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" xterm on secure
ttyvb "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" xterm on secure
The more virtual terminals, the more resources that are used. This can be problematic on systems with 8 MB RAM or less. Consider changing <literal>secure</literal> to <literal>insecure</literal>.
In order to run an X server, at least one virtual terminal must be left to <literal>off</literal> for it to use. This means that only eleven of the Alt-function keys can be used as virtual consoles so that one is left for the X server.
For example, to run X and eleven virtual consoles, the setting for virtual terminal 12 should be:
ttyvb "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" xterm off secure
The easiest way to activate the virtual consoles is to reboot.
