    Re: Wireless mouse not recognized at startup or reboot...

    I called up logitech and they're replacing my Anywhere mouse. I never had problems with it until I used it on Ubuntu 12.04.

    Even though I think I know the answer, I'm going to ask anyway: Is it at all possible that "Ubuntu" could have fried the transmitter?

    Yep. Last year, I nuked a BT dongle while working on BT authentication for legacy devices -- which also fried the attached HID keyboard

    So is it possible that "Ubuntu" (or the Kernel) is frying all these mice using the Darkfield technology? I find it curious that others are having this problem, but worse that the mice also suddenly don't work on OS or MAC? Is there a correlation?

    Does the mouse show up in dmesg? I don't have a Logitech mouse, but when I use the following command:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep Microsoft
    I get the following output:

    cariboo@alexis:~$ dmesg | grep Microsoft
    [ 1.533834] input: Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse\xffffffc2\xffffffae\xffffffae 1.0A as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb2/2-3/2-3:1.0/input/input2

    "Frying" is not very likely -- More likely is that the mouse has been unpaired from the unifying receiver. I know it's a drag but you should see if you can pair the mouse+receiver in Windows (as far as I'm aware Logitech hasn't ported that app to linux although there's a link to a user-contributed pairing tool here *which I've never used* http://forums.logitech.com/t5/Mice-a...rt/td-p/548124).

    BTW, the driver for the logitech unifying receiver (hid_logitech_dj) was contributed by Logitech.

    BTW, you guys with logitech unifying receiver wireless keyboards: I'd appreciate if you could waste a bunch of your time and try to install from the alternate iso. It will appear to hang after 'Install Ubuntu' but in actuality only the keyboard is unresponsive *because the logitech hid driver is not included in the kernel modules* -- hahaha...

    When you do repro that, would you please 'me too' this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/975198 ? Also wouldn't hurt to report the iso failure:
    amd64 here http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...5293/testcases
    i386 here http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...5295/testcases

    Thanks, I tried that with a tech support technician at Logitech. The "pairing" software didn't work which led the tech to conclude that either the transmitter was bad or the receiver (in either unit).

    Logitech is sending me a new mouse, as we speak. If the latest Ubuntu/Linux was somehow to blame, I don't want to fry 49 dollars worth of mouse. If the same mouse stops working for other users on 12.04 and Windows, then I'm really going to start worrying. So far, though, that doesn't appear to be the case. Evidence points to the problem being isolated to my mouse.

    Re: Wireless mouse not recognized at startup or reboot...

    When I let GNU Grub time out, the mouse isn't recognized, but when I choose from the list or simply just hit ENTER, the mouse is recognized? I've gone through eight reboots, and 3 out of the 4 times I let Grub time out, the mouse wasn't recognized, all 4 times I selected the highlighted entry, the mouse was recognized, and the only thing that ruins the theory was the one time when the mouse was recognized after Grub timesout. Could this issue stem from GNU Grub? Coincidence? I'll start a running tally of reboots to see if there is a correlation.

    Re: Wireless mouse not recognized at startup or reboot...

    I have a Logitech M305 wireless mouse, but have never had a problem. I'm currently using 12.04 with all updates installed.

    The touchpad used to drop out quite regularly ion 11.10, but never the mouse.

    What does all that mean? I don't know, but someone might.
