Problem installing Spacemouse driver for two users on mac catalina

Post by tsheiner » Sun Apr 05, 2020 7:06 pm

I want all user accounts on my mac to be able to use the Spacemouse for Sketchup.

I installed ran 10.6.5 package for Mac and mouse did not work.

Then I read about needing to allow driver to load via Security & Privacy settings.

I allowed the driver to install and the mouse worked but only for 1 account!

When I switched to a different user the 3Dconnexion folder was visible and the Viewer would run but the mouse would not control it.

I then uninstalled and reinstalled and now the driver won't load for any user AND there is no indication in Security & Privacy that it has blocked the driver.

Help!

I seem to have solved the problem.

I did a unix find & delete on "*3dconnexion*" then re-installed and drivers have loaded for all users.

Let me know if you figure out OS 11.0 (Big Sur) : )
