I installed NeXTStep onto my 712/80, but it canīt detect my mouse. So I tried several different mice, but none is working.

Which mouse is known for working under NeXTStep?

The 712 can only use PS/2 mice. Any PS/2 mouse should work.

I can assure you, that not all PS/2 mice work! I have tested 3 PS/2 and 2 USB (used with a USB->PS/2 adapter) mice and none of them could be detected by NeXTStep.

Do you have hpux? Perhaps the ps/2 port is bad?

Also possible, but Iīve got no other os to test. Maybe I can test OpenBSD or something like that.
