Recommended Posts

Project SmoothMouse is looking for developers who want to improve mouse experience in Mac OS X. Since most of us use or used Windows or Linux where mouse behaves much beter than in OS X a guy called Eugene is working on a fix and also asks developers for help.

Wow! I installed here, and gave one hell of a difference compared to before. I use a Logitech G9, and greatly improved!

Thanks for the tip! =D
PS: Working perfectly in mavericks. ;)

I've never noticed a problem with the mouse in osx. Is this one of those things where I don't know what I'm missing until I try it?


Edit: I didn't know what I was missing... This is pretty awesome. I just tried it on my Macbook Pro with both the built-in touchpad and my Logitech M705 and the difference is phenomenal. I didn't care for the Windows curve, even though I am also a Windows user, but the OS X curve still makes a big difference. Now I'm wondering if I can use the OS X curve in Windows, I didn't even realize they were different until now.

Hey buddy, the last version work on Yosemite?  :wacko:


I'm using 1.0.10 on Yosemite 10.10.3 with my Logitech AnywhereMX. Without it I am forced to install the acursed Logitech packages to make the device usable.

Do I need to uninstall Logitech Control Center first, to use this tool?


I would advise it. The Logitech Control Center breaks more things than it solves for me (Anywhere MX, NX80).


When removing please ensure that you change any/all settings you have changed back to their defaults as when you remove it, it leaves a lot of settings (e.g. cursor sensitivity) settings in-place and really messes up other tools/utilities (including Apple's) government of cursor related options.


The only real benefit to having the Logitech Control Center installed is for button 3 & 4 support (e.g. Back & Forward) but this can be easily remedied via other tools (e.g. BetterTouchTool) that can map 3F Swipe Left / Right or Internet Back and Internet Forward.


Here's what I have mine set to which closely mimics how it behaves in Windows, Ubuntu & OpenSUSE for me:


I also own an Apple Magic Mouse, the same settings don't make a great deal of difference (device is still horrible to use but is consistent outside of OS X as well).

      acabo de instalar linux mint 18 en una particion parte en un cuarto disco duro.
      Tengo windows 19 en un disco, sierra y una particion de resccate de sierra en otro, un disco dedicado a datos y documentos y el cuarto esta dividido en dos la primera particion para juegos y la segunda instale linux.
      clover me detecta la particion de linux sin problemas paero cuando ingreso a ella atravez de clover el teclado y el raton no responder, como si estuvieran desconectados.
      prove arracar directamente desde el disco duro donde el grub2 en vez del clover y detecta el teclado y el raton, asi que la instalacion de linux esta bien.
      tambien trate desde el clover configurator añadir un par de entradas personalizadas en el GUI por medio de legacy (esta en mbr la instalacion de linux) pero no aparacen dichas entradas personalizadas
      dejo la imagen de el clover configurator

      y tambien mi config.plist
      para saber que estoy haciendo mal

      Hi! I have problems with my mouse and keyboard on hackintosh.
      My mouse, Logitech G300s after installing Logitech Gaming Software slow down where cursor is near to something "clickable" (like exit buttons, etc.), when it is on this buttons, it's freeze on about 2s and it doesn't react on any mouse's move. I heard many users have this problem, but I didn't find solution. I don't want to uninstall LGS, because one button is changing mouse's DPI when I press it and with LGS I can disable it.
      My keyboard, Corsair k70 RGB can't be noticed in CKB. Just CKB doesn't see it. I tried to plug keyboard to USB 2.0 and 3.0, changing work modes (from 1000MHz/1ms to 500MHz/2s and slower), plugging after system's boot and nothing works and after install CKB media keys has stopped working.

      My specs:
      MOBO: Gigabyte P85-D3
      CPU: i5-4670
      GPU: GTX 750 Ti
      RAM: 8GB DDR3

      OS: macOS Sierra 10.12.6

      Fiz a instalação do Yosemite em um Samsung RF 511 SD3 BR. O notebook parece uma chapa de fritar ovos de tão quente que ele fica, esse problema de aquecimento ocorre no Windows tb. Ele tem uma placa gráfica Nvidia GT540 M e mais a Intel HD 3000, a Intel está funcionando perfeitamente e como sempre li que a Nvidia não funciona eu queria desativa-la para tentar deixar o notebook menos quente. Como posso fazer isso? Na config.plist já está desativada mas mesmo assim ela aparece na parte de gráficos, tem algum patch de DSDT para desativar ?
      Audio ALC 269 (AppleALC)
      Atalho para Brilho e Volume
      WiFi+Bluetooh ( troquei por uma AR5B195)

      Nvidia GT 540M
      Audio HDMI

      OK, i managed to install the OSX almost perfectly, my last problem that i couldn't fix is that every time i start my pc the mouse is not working.
      re-plugging the usb seems to make it work but still every time the pc goes to sleep or if i reboot, i need to connect the mouse right after it boots up.
      Anyone knows a solution?
