    MAC Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 9.10

    Hi,

    I have a MacBookPro (5.3) and installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it. Most works great, nearly all out of the box. Only the new MAC Magic Mouse works not correctly.

    Bluetooth detects the mouse and assigns it as 'Apple Wireless Mouse'

    There I have the following problems:

    * No support for the multi-touch face
    * bumpy moving cursor.

    Any solutions? Any third-party support?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I also couldn't get the magic mouse to work.
    Right & left buttons and thats it. No touch scroll or anything.
    Tried with BTNX and it also didn't detect any. Went back to using my old mouse. The middle click is still more useful than what the Magic mouse can offer IMO.

    I just got it to work on my ancient PowerBook G4, much to my surprise.
    You mean the Magic Mouse under Linux on your PB G4? If so, can you please tell us what you did ?

    Yes, I'm interested in this, too. My experience with the Magic Mouse was, that it can be connected as bluetooth HID device and that moving and the left and right clock works out of the box. But I found no way to get multitouch or even scrolling to work.

    Compilation and loading the module with a patched kernel works fine. I will test the functionality with a Magic Mouse of a friend on friday.

    The kernel module works and enables scrolling and middle clock for the magic mouse. But scrolling is not very smooth, yet.

    Re: MAC Magic Mouse on Ubuntu 9.10

    Hi!

    I'm playing with the entrope-magic-mouse driver with ubuntu 9.10.
    First I compiled a new kernel with all of the 3 patches. The new hid-module was
    compiled into the kernel and my magic mouse learned to scroll in ubuntu

    Now I compiled a new kernel with only the first 2 patches. After starting the new kernel
    I compiled the module. After that I copied the hid-magicmouse.ko file into /lib/modules/2.6.33-rc6.
    Then I ran depmod -a.

    lsmod is showing this:
    Module Size Used by
    hid_magicmouse 5719 0
    hidp 14296 1
    binfmt_misc 7486 1
    --snip--

    But I cannot get the system to use the module... How can I tell ubuntu to use the hid_magicmouse module?

    Thanks for any help!
