USB mouse under X / kde / gnome in FreeBSD 7.1

During FreeBSD 7.1 installation, many users with USB mouse respond in negative when the setup asks if they have PS2 or serial mouse (as USB =/= serial). And then they end up with kde up and running and no mouse.


The quick way to fix that is to add
moused_enable="YES"
moused_type="auto"

to your /etc/rc.conf file and reboot.
Xorg server picks up the device /dev/sysmouse nicely.
