DESCRIPTION
       vmmouse  is an XFree86 input driver for mice.  The driver supports most
       available mouse types and interfaces.  USB mice are only  supported  on
       some OSs, and the level of support for PS/2 mice depends on the OS.

       The vmmouse driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used
       as the X server's core pointer.  Multiple mice are supported by  multi-
       ple instances of this driver.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please  refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details and for
       options that can be used with all input  drivers.   This  section  only
       covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The  driver  will automatically detect if the vmmouse device is present
       and if it is not, it will load the regular mouse driver and attempt  to
       fall  back to it. There are no vmmouse specific options, but if you set
       mouse(4) options, they will be passed on.

       See the mouse(4) man page for details on these options.
