I am trying to enable the right click on a Magic Mouse connected to an iMac running 10.6.8, but due to parental controls, I am unable to gain access to the Mouse System Preferences.

I know you can change other settings through Terminal, is it possible to change it to enable right click as well?

I saw this question, but the command

defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse MouseButtonMode TwoButton

did not make it work for me. If I do

defaults read com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse

then is confirms that the TwoButton string was set, but when I right click, nothing happens.


Never mind - logging in and out made it work!

Such an obvious fix.
