If it shows up in windows as a mouse, it *might* show up in JInput as a mouse, probably with some generic name. If not, you will need to install the driver for it to show up as a directx device.
Thanks endolf for the reply. Just installed the logitech software - I presume this includes the driver?.
When I run my test application it still is not recognising the device!!!!! Could there be an issue that I already have a USB mouse plugged into my PC and JInput cant differentiate between the mouse and the trackman?
Can someone please help me out - I am stuck?
