    Mouse0 is correct otherwise you would not have seen any characters.

    I updated the existing lines within the .RC file. I’m attaching my .RC for your review. the file was showing up as invalid so I renamed the file.

    did you verify that your trackball/spinner are on mouse0?

    If not you need to verify by

    ls /dev/input to see the inputs

    cat /dev/input/mouse0 move the trackball/spinner. If you don’t see text then try mouse1.

    cat /dev/input/mouse1

    The input map would have to be updated to point to the correct mouse input

    I think the key was changing the mousetype to ps2. Originally when I had the issue my trackball/spinner were assigned to mouse1. I started over with a clean install. My trackball was then assigned to mouse0. After the new install, the trackball and Spinner were also recognized in mame4all.

    I finally got the trackball and spinner to work.

    I finally got the trackball and spinner to work with advmame

    the first thing you need to do is figure out which mouse is providing the inputs
    type ls /dev/input – I had mouse0 and mouse1

    determine which mouse is providing input for the trackball and spinner – it will be the same.
    type cat /dev/input/mouse0
    move the trackball or spinner. If text is showing on the screen then you will use mouse0 in your configuration. If no text then substitute mouse0 with mouse1.

    The roms that I had loaded were for advmame-0.94.0. edit the advmame-0.94.0.rc configuration file
    cd .advance

    I used the advmame-0.94.0 roms
    edit advmam-0.94.0.rc in the retropie/.advance folder

    edit the following lines
    device_keyboard raw
    device_mouse raw

    device_raw_mousedev[0] /dev/input/mouse0
    device_raw_mousetype[0] ps2

    input_map[p1_dialx] mouse[0,x]
    input_map[p1_dialy] mouse[0,y]

    input_map[p1_trackballx] mouse[0,x]
    input_map[p1_trackbally] mouse[0,y]
