    Re: MAC Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 9.10

    The driver above works for me, but there are two really annoying problems:

    1) scrolling is too slow (I need to pass almost whole mouse for one page down). Is there a way to tweak scrolling speed?

    2) mouse is too fast. If I slow it down in gnome, I also slow down touchpad on my mbp so it becomes unusable. Is there a way to tweak speed for this mouse _only_?

    magicmouse 1.1 is published for 10.04. Any way to make it working on 9.10?

    Thanks.

    Where can I find this magicmouse 1.1 for LUCID. Any change it does not require compiling a new kernel, using dkms perhaps.

    The repository should also be valid for Lucid. Note that this requires compiling a new kernel because the magicmouse driver requires more information from the Bluetooth stack than the standard Linux bluetooth API exports. So, it includes some patches to the core Bluetooth stack to add new API calls, which cannot be inserted by a kernel module via dkms.

    Re: MAC Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 9.10

    Okay. This is really excellent. I added the PPA from post 101 above http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=101.

    Then in synaptic, I added multitouch-kernel-source which also requires dkms. I could not add the module right away because you need to unload several other modules. Reboot then

    Code:
     sudo modprobe hid-magicmouse
    Now I am very pleasantly scrolling vertically with a touch of the magic beast.

    Let me make this clear. I did not compile a new kernel, I am using Lucid 2.6.32-21 from the repos. Dkms compiled a few modules, and they will be updated with every new kernel.

    Of course, if you are happy with the module, you can add it to a new line in /etc/modules so it gets loaded with every reboot.

    Well, the maintainers of that PPA compiled that custom kernel for you. So in Lucid you'll be relying on them to track the latest security updates.

    Re: MAC Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 9.10

    Hi there!

    I can't make it work neither with the amd-64's indications (post #107)! I'm using Lucid 64bit (2.6.32-22) on a iMac 27" i7.

    Can someone make a little step by step tutorial?

    Thanks.

    I assume you have no issues with Bluetooth connectivity, the mouse works but not as multitouch.

    Here are the steps to activate multitouch. I am using the same kernel you have 2.6.32-22 but on a mbp5,3

    Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chasedouglas/multitouch/ubuntu lucid main
    
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/multitouch/ubuntu lucid main
    In a shell (or in synaptic) you can do the following

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    
    sudo apt-get install multitouch-kernel-source
    I then rebooted and inserted the module

    Code:
    sudo modprobe hid-magicmouse
    You should not get any errors at this point

    Test scrolling by swiping the multitouch surface of the mouse.

    If all works well you may need to add "hid-magicmouse" without quotes to your /etc/modules file so it gets loaded on every boot.
