Question Linux friendly touch scroll or 360 degree scroll mouse?


Hello,

I really enjoyed using Apple's wireless Mighty Mouse and Magic mouse because of their ability to easily touch scroll 360 degrees. Unfortunately, Linux drivers are not provided for these mice.

Is there an equivalent wireless mouse that works well in Linux? Ideally with native support or community provided drivers, etc.

Thanks!

Thanks that's great to know!

I still wonder though, if there are non-Apple mice that offers similar functionality to the Mighty Mouse.
