    Scratch that. There is a line in /usr/$user/lib/profile that reads

    switch($terminal){

    Above that, add

    bind -a '#U' /dev
    usbstart

    usbstart sets up everything, including USB-based audio and the mouse.



  2. Re: [9fans] Plan 9 wireless how-to...

    First, thanks a lot for the advices and help;

    However, the theory to practice step seems to be a bit longer

    1. about network:
    - following your advice, found plan9.ini
    - i managed to modify it with sam, ( for some strange reason, when I'm
    editing the file in ACME, the 'Put' option appears as soon as I modify the
    file - and that is expected; but after I select 'Put' and press button2-
    nothing happens.... Actually seems like commands within ACME toolsbar do not
    want to react to button2 (?) ).
    - no matter what I put inside, while booting Plan9 I can see the card
    was detected, elkn3 was used, and media was set to 10Base... (And the card
    is working fine after...) But the card is 100Base, and my intention was to
    set it to be 100BaseTX...
    The line I added at the end of the plan9.ini reads:
    ether0=type=elnk3 media=100BaseTX force100 fullduplex

    So, that configuration step is still won by Plan9

    2. I followed your advice on USB...
    ( By the way, the card I am trying to use - "Belkin Components/eTek Labs,
    Model #F54220" ).

    I put the lines you told me just above switch($services){...
    The idea was to see the mouse connected to USB operational...

    But I do not even see detection of USB card during start up...

    So, that configuration step is also won by Plan9

    So, the current score is 2:0... But I still have a hope to win it one day.

    Thanks for your attention to this matter.

    Michael.
