My magic mouse that I had for a few months no longer works with any of the scrolls or swipes or any of the gestures that made me buy the mouse.


I can only right and left click and move the pointer around the screen.


I've deleted the two different preferences files from the global and user 'preferences' folders, restarted, but to no avail.


When I connect the mouse to my MBP, the connection indication shows the mouse to be a mighty mouse as does the preferences pane under the mouse tab, while the bluetooth utility shows a magic mouse.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
