Set up a Magic Mouse 2



  • Forrest Smith

    Hi Joe,


    I don't know much about libinput, but if you can map the mouse to libgestures ( the Chromium OS specific input stack ) then you might get  much further. 

    If you look at the contents of the file /etc/gesture/40-touchpad-cmt.conf I think you'll find an entry for the magic mouse (1) that may be useful as a reference point.

    Hi Forrest,


    it seems like a lot has changed between model 1 and 2.

    But thank you for your help!

    I'm not sure of the status of Magic Mouse 2 support in Linux. It looks like there are a few patch submissions to support it (, but it's unclear to me if any have been accepted.

    I just took a look through our kernel fork and it doesn't look like we have support for it right now, but hopefully it will come in time with a kernel upgrade.

    Thank you for this insight, Michael!
