SteerMouse

5.4.4
18 February 2020

Powerful third-party mouse driver.

Overview

SteerMouse is an advanced driver for USB and Bluetooth mice.

SteerMouse can assign various functions to buttons that Apple's software does not allow, including double-clicks, modifier clicks, application switching, assignment of shortcut keys, "snap to" cursor movement, which moves the cursor to target (such as an OK button), and more.

SteerMouse lets you control the cursor's sensitivity on top of the tracking speed. (Apple's software only allows adjustment for the tracking speed.) By adjusting both configurations, you can customize the ideal setting for the cursor to fit the movements of your hand.

What's new in SteerMouse

Version 5.4.4:
  • Improved the bahavior of Application Switcher.
  • Problem solves where SteerMouse Manager would cause an exception error.

I've been using this program for gaming for years, and its the only mouse control software I currently have installed. I have licenses to other like software, as well as access to the name brand software for my mouses, but I still prefer this. it works, and it's easy to use. About the only thing it doesn't do is offer control of the color changing LEDs on my devices, but I can't even down rate it for that as its such a specialized thing. The software works great for both gaming as well as working. Worth every penny.

I'm not a dolt, but I can't even figure out how to install this thing. I download the dmg, successfully install the preferences pane, then I click on the icon in System Preferences. There's a message: "You need to allow “SteerMouse Manager” to use accessibility features in Security & Privacy." OK, but: First, installing the preferences pane does not install any file called "SteerMouse Manager" on my computer. I can't allow it to do anything because it does not exist. Second, the files that are installed with the preference pane are in Users/me/Library--the Library directory is a hidden file, though, so you cannot navigate to it through the popup in Accessibility! I am sure there is a workaround here, but I have no idea what it is--and, again, I'm not a dolt. I've been using macs forever and I know I am competent. If I can't figure it out, I would bet 90% of potential users can't figure it out.

I've used SteerMouse successfully for years but 5.4.3 (or earlier) has created a major problem for me. It appears to be conflicting with my mouse & keyboard sharing app, Synergy, by Symless.com. Never had any conflict until I installed the latest versions of each. I need to try various other versions of each app until I find a pair that do not conflict. It would be very hard to get by without both of these apps. Problem: I need .dmg install files for SteerMouse 5.3.2 and any later versions but they are not available on the SteerMouse site or from torrent sites. I would be greatly appreciative if anyone could provide me with any of the versions from 5.3.2 through 5.4.2 at dw4comp at gmail dot com.

The update has crippled SteerMouse in Catalina. Nothing works. Cannot even go back to previous version. Really depressing because I need this app.

You can boot your Mac into a safe mode and remove or disable the application. How to do so you can find here: https://www.howtogeek.com/189104/troubleshoot-your-mac-with-these-hidden-startup-options/

Brilliant. I would hate not to have this super software installed on my Mac. Ten-out-of-ten for SteerMouse.

I think the latest Steer Mouse app is interfering with my Wacom Intuos Tablet function. I can't get it to draw a bush stroke with it on, but when it's off, brush strokes return.

I'm using Steermouse with three input devices: a Logitech MX Ergo, a Logitech Marble Mouse, and an Apple Magic Trackpad. It works fine with all three of them. Setting it up was a little confusing because some of the up/down scrolling options went in the opposite direction from what I expected - but once I got those configured correctly, it has been problem-free. I like it *much* better than Logitech's driver software.

Interesting you should mention that you have it working for your Apple Magic Trackpad, seeing the dev specifically mentions that 'It does not support the Apple Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad'.

What's your secret? And does it work for your Magic Mouse as well?

To Kobalt:
You're right - my trackpad configuration is in Apple's built-in preference pane, not in Steermouse. Sorry for the error.
