    Unhappy Inaccurate mouse tracking
    Hi everyone, I have had my dual G5 2.5 for just over a month and everything seems to be running fine but, I find that the apple mouse isnīt as accurate as my logitech mouse was on my PC.
    Can anyone tell me if this is normal? I work alot with Photoshop and REALLY need accuracy. I've installed the Logitech drivers for Macintosh but I donīt seem to have gained alot of precision.

    Any suggestions please??

    Thanx
    Briss

    if youre using the apple pro mouse, make sure youre using a mouse pad or not using it on a surface with any shine or reflective abilities, thatll throw the mouse off. also, in system preferences>kb and mose, try slowing down the mouse speed or tracking.

    Are you still using the Mac mouse? or the Logitech?

    I have a Logitech usb wireless track ball that i use with my PowerMac G5 2.0 and it works just great without any particular drivers installed. Just plugged it in and there it was. Also use a Microsoft usb wireless keyboard that plugged in and worked, but you did have to use a Ms driver in order to get the Apple keys working...

    Just use the Logitech mouse on ur PowerMac. Get the drivers from the Logitech website.

    I have downloaded the drivers from the Logitech website and I am using the Logitech mouse right now but didnīt gain the accuracy I used to have on the PC.
