Question Apple's Magic Mouse scrolling not working in RHEL 6

I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Workstation release 6.4 (Santiago) and kernel 2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64. The list of loaded kernel modules is shown below.

Although Apple's Magic Mouse is correctly connected via Bluetooth and the right and left buttons are working as expected, the scrolling does not work.

What should I do to make it work?

Please let me know if I need to add more details from some configuration file (e.g. X11).

Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure the magic mouse requires non-standard drivers.

There's an unofficial driver named "hid-magicmouse" that you can get here.

I haven't tried it myself but you can give it a go.

Thank you. I'll give it a try and let you know.
