Does anyone have any experience using the Logitech Performance Mouse MX on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or other? I'm thinking about getting one since my Logitech MX1000's sensor is dying on me (which never had particularly good Ubuntu-fu) and want to make sure it'll actually perform well.

I've got one on 10.10 and it works fine right out of the box, even the horizontal scrolling feature.

here is a good tutorial I found for getting the extra buttons to work:

You can make the mouse with all buttons working. I've written a tutorial here:

And for DPI?

I have not played with the DPI, but all other functions work -- I know other mice can have their DPI set using Windows and then used on Linux, but not sure about the MX.

For DPI take a look here:

You can assign the xinput command to a button of the mouse as described in the tutorial in my previous post. Haven't tested it but the article says it was tested with current Ubuntu versions and Logitech mouses.
