I have heard that there is a web site somewhere that have a pdf or
something that has enough resolution that if you print it out, ti works
just the same. I have a friend who needed one, and tried this. His
printer did not print it ou tat the correct resolution and it worked
just not very well.

life:

Print it as, well, poscript and let us know if you try it out.

Take a look at http://retrocomputing.c3po.it/Retronomicon/html/sunpad.htm

There are several pad styles so if the printed one doesn't work with your mouse it may be
because it imitates the wrong style, maybe the pattern density could be adjusted?

320-1017 - mouse pad, type-5 optical
320-1018 - M4 pad, 200 CPI, .032", 177.8mm x 196.9mm
320-1079 - M4 pad, 200 CPI, .032", 228.6mm x 196.9mm
370-1399 - Type 5 Optical Pad, 300 CPI aka 403368-001

The first problem you have is what kind of Sun mouse. There are at least 3
kinds of pads. some work with a couple of different mice some don't work
with anything but the correct pad. You will need to determine which mouse
you have first.
