# HID driver configuration
menuconfig HID_SUPPORT
bool "HID Devices"
depends on INPUT
default y
Say Y here to get to see options for various computer-human interface
device drivers. This option alone does not add any kernel code.
If you say N, all options in this submenu will be skipped and disabled.
config HID
tristate "Generic HID support"
depends on INPUT
default y
A human interface device (HID) is a type of computer device that
interacts directly with and takes input from humans. The term "HID"
most commonly used to refer to the USB-HID specification, but other
devices (such as, but not strictly limited to, Bluetooth) are
designed using HID specification (this involves certain keyboards,
mice, tablets, etc). This option compiles into kernel the generic
HID layer code (parser, usages, etc.), which can then be used by
transport-specific HID implementation (like USB or Bluetooth).
For docs and specs, see
If unsure, say Y
config HID_DEBUG
bool "HID debugging support"
default y if !EMBEDDED
depends on HID
This option lets the HID layer output diagnostics about its internal
state, resolve HID usages, dump HID fields, etc. Individual HID drivers
use this debugging facility to output information about individual HID
devices, etc.
This feature is useful for those who are either debugging the HID parser
or any HID hardware device.
If unsure, say N
config HIDRAW
bool "/dev/hidraw raw HID device support"
depends on HID
Say Y here if you want to support HID devices (from the USB
specification standpoint) that aren't strictly user interface
devices, like monitor controls and Uninterruptable Power Supplies.
This module supports these devices separately using a separate
event interface on /dev/hidraw.
There is also a /dev/hiddev configuration option in the USB HID
configuration menu. In comparison to hiddev, this device does not process
the hid events at all (no parsing, no lookups). This lets applications
to work on raw hid events when they want to, and avoid using transport-specific
userspace libhid/libusb libraries.
If unsure, say Y.
