This changes the AppleADBMouse.kext to conform to the
ADB Mouse standard protocol as defined by apple. It
allows standard mice to use 2 buttons (which is already
built into pearpc).
There are 2 parts to this patch:
1) there is the compiled patch (and src due to APSL
licencing). This is a tar.gz file. Extract this in osx.
Then in a console type:
sudo su -
chown -R root.wheel ./AppleADBMouse.kext
Make sure you dont move the mouse while this is doing
its thing (as it is replacing the mouse driver!). Yo
can ignor any warning messages saying the use of "." is
depricated. Each of the lines above is a different
is the the path where you extracted the tar.gz file.
If you know another way to replace a kext go for it,
that is all it is doing.
This will enable the right click function. However (at
least on windows) PearPC currently mapps a mac right
click to the middle mouse button. To fix that...
2) the use_right_click_for_kext.patch patch file should
be applied before compiling pearpc. All i does is
change the number 2 (middle button) to 3 (right button).
You do not need to use this patch, it will just mean
that you will have to middle click to make the mac
Again I would love to know if this works for you. Feel
