    Cable or Wlan-Mouse? Here both works great.
    Check if mouse is recognized by poseidon -prefs (USB)/Devices as hid.class. (Wlan-Mouse is called "USB Receiver)
    If not: Change mouse!

    @ bash64 - Some of the later Apple wireless mice, and probably some of the cheaper/generic mice might be unsupported by the Apple hardware that MorphOS uses. I know I have a later Apple (Magic-type) wireless mouse (model number not to hand) that suffers/doesn't work because of this issue. :-(

    So, you might need an older wireless mouse to get it to work, though I've bought some cheapeer/generic mice and they have been OK. It seems to be good/bad luck if you come across one that is/n't supported or compatible with MorphOS, though there are some quoted in the MorphOS - Hardware Compatibility#Mice section that might be useful as reference to you in these circumstances. 8-D

    I had the same problem with wired mouse. I had to re-plug mouse after every reset, both on Powermac and Powerbook. If I swap the mouse for the not-so-cheap one, all works normally.


    So I have the same advice like others - change the mouse ;-)

    @ bash64 - Which models (their model numbers) of mice did you try out that either did or did not work with MorphOS? :-?

    As the hardware compatibility list in the MorphOS Library could probably benefit from having the hardware added in there for other users to know what does/doesn't work with MorphOS. 8-D
