    Hi

    OK, short and sweet: The magic Mouse did not do it for me, so I replaced it with a Logitech mouse. Works great, EXCEPT - Now I cannot seem to get inertial scrolling back. It works with the MM, but not a "normal" mouse.

    Are there any settings to have inertia scrolling enabled for a non-Apple pointing device?

    Thanks! :D

    Hi.

    You should download the drivers from Logitech's web site.

    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/584/3129

    When installed, you'll see a new item at the bottom of System Preferences, where you'll be able to select and configure inertia scrolling, among many other things.

    Good luck

    Thanks FJSS - I will check out the new drivers, the last ones I installed were only 2 months ago. Thought I was still on the latest :p - thanks for the heads-up *runs off and downloads latest drivers* :D

    It should work with two month old drivers....I haven't updated my LCC in quite a while (if it ain't broke....) and inertial scrolling works great with my Performance MX

    Thanks fhall1 - I wonder if I am not missing something somewhere, I have checked all the options before, but haven't seen anything w.r.t. inertia scrolling. I can only check tonight when at home and will first check before reporting back. I have a M505 wireless mouse - can you remember any particular settings to have enabled inertia scrolling in LCC?

    Thanks again for the help :D

    If I remember, I'll take a look when I get home tonight.

    EDIT: I took a look at the LCC (V3.30) pref pane this morning and I don't see anywhere to enable/disable change speed for inertial scrolling, but I guarantee you it's working - when I give the mouse wheel a wicked spin it'll scroll for a long time on a big file.

    Hi fhall1

    How do you do it? I have checked and double-checked all the LCC settings and there are no options for inertial scrolling :(. What model is your mouse - maybe it is a function of the mouse? I think if your mouse supports Logitech "hyper scrolling", that is the same thing as inertial scrolling. That might be why your mouse is working fine. I am using a M505, which I think does not have "hyper scrolling".

    Also checked all other mouse related tabs in System prefs and nothing. Uninstalled LCC and still nothing and no additional options.

    Aaaargghh Apple!!! Inertial scroling works 100% with Magic Mouse, but plug in my Logitech and NO MORE.

    Anybody have some pointers please? Thanks! :D

    EDIT: This does not work unfortunately:

    defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse MouseMomentumScroll -bool yes
