Enable third button options for generic third-party mice
Authored by: tempel on Jun 03, '09 07:54:16AM

I guess it might even be safer not to alter the original driver file but instead make a copy of it, rename that to your liking and then make the changes there. That way, if Apple updates the AppleHIDMouse.kext driver, your own changes won't get overwritten.

Thus you end up with your "own" driver suited for your mouse.

And remember to update the custom driver if Apple's is updated.

Also, custom kext's on Leopard go in /Library/Extensions and should have owner:

root:wheel
