Apple Magic Mouse 2 Deepin 15.9
I have Deepin 15.9 installed together with an 2 magic mouse, which I would like to use in depin. Until now only managed to link the magic mouse with bluetooth without scrolling or gestures.
Would it be possible to operate the scroll in depin ?.
Wireless mouse with multi touch gestures
-Year of production:
-Supported operating system:
MacOS, Windows, Linux (Ubuntu)
I got the Magic Mouse 2 (A1657) working with deepin OS. You need to update the linux kernel to 4.18 or higher and install this driver: https://github.com/robotrovsky/Linux-Magic-Trackpad-2-Driver .
Horizontal and vertical scrolling work well. And there is a driver driver that can be configured to allow tap-to-click, two-finger-scroll, three-finger-drag etc ...
Supposedly the hid-magicmouse driver for Magic Mouse 2 and Trackpad 2 come with the 4.20 linux kernel, but it did not work for me when I tried.
Just be aware you could lose the functionality of some things (I was not able to use my touchscreen) and / or system may become unstable - so if you do this route make sure you backup your data.
