Allow mouse and keyboard control as well as touch
Some people (like me) use Rift while sitting at a desk with a HOTAS, keyboard and mouse. Using a touch controller in combination with this environment is extremely impractical. Can options to use keyboard and mouse to control the dash and desktop functions be implemented?
why is this not an option. at one point enabling mouse trails made the mouse usable but apparently it doesn't anymore. I mostly fly and drive in vr, I never have batts in my controllers because they chew through them just sitting there

As a person with a disability, my upper body mobility is limited and I cannot use the controllers. At the moment I cannot use the Oculus because of this but mouse and keyboard compatibility would solve this.
Yeah this needs to be added. When I'm about to fire up Assetto Corsa or Project Cars 2, I really don't use my Touch controllers. Mouse should always work (alternatively) in Oculus menus, even if Touch controllers are nearby.
It doesn't need a menu option, just support both at all times. When Touch is in use, mouse will be overridden. But mouse should always respond. Keyboard, not that important for me since I just want to point and click stuff in the Oculus home. I wouldn't see my KB anyway, but mouse is easy to use without seeing it (I have to do it in Assetto Corsa game menus anyway, so...)
Yes!!!Add keyboard+mouse control without touch controllers!!!

A touch sensor compatabile keyboard and mouse would be awesome. So I put my rift on, and I can see the keyboard and the mouse, and maybe my relative finger placement too.
