    Hey friends,

    When launching either VoidPPC Linux or OSX (Tiger or Leopard) on my Powerbook 5,9, the Dell USB mouse works. It is of model MOCZUL. According to the specifications, it is rated to 5V, 100mA. I'm not sure if this is helpful information.

    On the other listed OSes, the mouse emits a blue light. Under MorphOS, there's a very slight occasional flicker of blue light but the mouse never truly works.

    I have several of these mice and they all exhibit the same behavior.

    Anyone have any ideas here?

    Posting the VID/PID would be a good start if you want anyone to investigate.

    Vendor and Product IDs. You'll find them in USB settings for the device.

    Well, it doesn’t look like there is anything special about this device ... what logs does the USB prefs spew out when you plug it in?

    Got an amazon link for it? Maybe I could get one and take a look...

    No messages at all when plugging/unplugging the mouse. Very strange!

    I can probably just mail you one if you like - pm me your shipping info. No big deal.

    On Amazon, I believe it's this: https://smile.amazon.com/Dell-6-Button-Perfectly-Connectors-Compatible/dp/B005O239FW/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=dell+moczul+mouse&qid=1595808368&sr=8-3
