    Has anyone tried using the current version of SteerMouse with the new MagicMouse? The only issue I have with the new MagicMouse is the tracking speed (acceleration or sensitivity actually). Can the current version of SteerMouse be used?

    Thanks,

    Rich :cool:

    I posted this in another thread but it's worth posting here. I too was curious since I bought a license 9 days before they released the Magic Mouse. I'll still use the app on another machine but I'd like it to work with the Magic Mouse.

    Thing is that non of these 3rd party add-on's should even be necessary. Seems like pretty basic stuff to be included in the OS at this point doesn't it?

    Open terminal and type:
    defaults write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling 5.0

    Default value is 3, 5 is a good one.

    For me the best setting is actually:

    defaults.write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling -1

    This seems to remove the horrible sluggishness for small movements. It makes it a little bit too fast on my 30", but it's so much better than any of the alternatives ... at least until SteerMouse works.
