SOLUTION for Mouse tearing!

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Now, after I got QE/CI and resolution change, I was going mad about the mouse tearing.

I tryed the the other solutions to solve that problem but they all doesn't work well.

 

Now I found a way to completly solve this problem with my USB-Mouse!

 

Download USB-Overdrive 10.4.5 and install it.

 

Thats all! Mouse tearing has gone completly! It works for me and many friends, so I think

it will work for mostly every USB-Mouse user.

 

A nice side effect from these driver is that nearly every button from your mouse is usable like in XP

 

Please post your experiences in this thread.

 

(New Info: sometimes when using the mousewheel the tearing sometimes appear, but in all other ways it's 100% gone :P )

Hi there!

 

Unfortunately this didn't work for me -_-

(K8TNeo2, Venice AMD, ATI Radeon9800 Pro)

 

The tearing is somewhat better but not nearly as good as when I use Mighty Mouse (the software, not the apple mouse of course).

Agh! Help! I installed it and now OS X won't boot. PLEASE tell me how to uninstall it in single user mode, please!

 

 

 

 

 

 

HELP!

 

EDIT:: Phew, fixed. Booted into single user, deleted the kext it installed from /System/Library/Extensions , booted into safemode, ran uninstaller, fixed permissions, done.

heyyy pretty good!

 

i installed this and set the acceleration to 200% and it looks like most of the tearing is gone! a much better solution than mouse locater!

unfortunately i use my scroll wheel like a demon so that's still an issue, but a LOT better than before.

 

thanks!

Sorry im a noob. What is mouse tearing, and how can I tell if I have QE/CI working ?

 

My mouse works, but its a PITA. Seems slow, and not very accurate. Maybe I have to get use to it coming from Windows??

I know this is a really noobish question (being a new user to osx and all), but how do I uninstall this program? I removed USBoverdrive.kext from the extensions folder but it still loads up.

Did you remove the files:

/System/Library/Extensions.mkext

and

/System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

??
