Enable third button options for generic third-party mice
Authored by: osxpounder on Jun 03, '09 09:58:14AM

Thanks for the hint. Because I use computers for many hours, every day, and have dealt with sore hands and wrists for years, I like knowing what my options are.

Part of my day is now spent in a a lab/teaching space with basic iMac setups, including the despicable Mighty Mouse. Most days, I unplug that and use a trackball mouse I carry in the laptop bag. On those Macs, however, I can't install any drivers. Luckily this amidextrous Logitech trackball's two main buttons work without the nice pref pane that its install disk inserts into my own Macs.

(BTW, I won't go into detail here, but, yes, I've seen doctors, I do prescribed stretches, and use prescribed ergonomic tools like keyboard trays, curved keyboards, and a selection of mice and trackballs.)
