One button mouse?
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:35:20 AM »
Hey guys,

I have a one-button Apple mouse that I really like that I got for Christmas for my eMac last year. I want to use it in MorphOS... can MorphOS be configured to work with some keyboard shortcut for right click like Ctrl on Mac OS X? I really wanted to use it, if not I'll use a regular USB PC mouse.

Yes, one button mice are supported. I believe the details are in the MorphOS readme on the install CD.

You like that?
Man, I don't even use those under OSX.
I'm not giving up right click functionality or my scroll wheel.

The oldschool ADB ball mice I could see, but Apple's USB mice have been pretty universally crap ever since the iMac hockey-puck...

1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

People who want to be productive with their system?  Even with all the laptop builds I do I always include a mouse, people just don't like the trackpad unless it's for something quick.  Generally a wireless or Bluetooth mouse works great with a laptop.  I assume "magic" trackpad is a joke.  :razz:

Well, I like the concept of a one button mouse. Forces GUI designers to make sensible GUI designs without all kinds of hidden features.

Or would force, if there wouldn't be any other alternatives. Reality is that stuff gets more hidden and laborious with one button mouse when you have to press keyboard keys to access all features.

Yes, yes... I like the one button Apple mice. Why? - I don't know it's just my personal preference. I have two that I alternate around, the clear Apple Pro mouse, and yes... I have the graphite colored puck mouse... go figure. Hey though, we're all different... I'm into Apple, Commodore/Amiga and UNIX/Linux. :-)


And thanks for the tip though, I got MorphOS working fine with them.
