Mighty mouse trackball

Is there any way to use the mighty mouse trackball as an actual trackball, so that you could move the cursor with it?

Do not post the same discussion in more than one forum. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members. Try and pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure put it in Linux - General.

that double post

the double post was accidental, I accidentally hit the back and forward buttons and it made an extra thread.

Now lets get to an answer

what do you mean by no trouble? We don't have to do anything to have it the trackball act like it does in Mac OS X?
