@Mr. Sinister: Your reciever is for both a keyboard and a mouse. A few pages back, someone mentioned what they used to get the udev rule to grab only the mouse part, so you might want to check that out as well.
@ijanos: hmm, not sure.
@rmjb: Thanks for helping out man!
No probs, we're all a community, I just hope I don't give the users wrong advice some time.

I've gone over the instructions and I really don't know what I'm missing.
All the files were created using sudo, so I'm assuming they have the right permissions.
I've changed the 19-local.rules to read input/event3 and I also changed my xorg.conf to /dev/input/event3 and still no luck.
It worked fine until I rebooted my system, so I don't really know what changed.
Thanks for the help though.
I have a g7 and I was trying to bind the left/right wheel clicks to go through Firefox tabs, but when I restarted X, the mouse didn't work at all. when I removed the entries from the xbindkeysrc and rebooted, the mouse worked fine. I haven't done anything with udev. Here's my info

event3 didn't work at all had an infinite atomic loop or something like that, so I tried event2 and all of the buttons are being read by xev. in xev, the left/right wheel click events are 6 and 7, so do I need to change my ZAxisMapping?Code:Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Configured Mouse" Driver "evdev" Option "CorePointer" Option "Dev Name" "Logitech USB Receiver" Option "Dev Phys" "usb-0000:00:1d.3-2/input0" Option "Device" "/dev/input/event2" Option "Buttons" "8" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 7 8" EndSection
Thank you for the HOWTO...now my Logitech desktop comfort mouse works even with the nautilus!!!!
Hey guys, firstly thanks for the great guide. Secondly, here's my config for anyone wanting the same setup:
I'm using an MX610 (righty) and I like to have the left and right tilt of the scroll wheel cycle left and right through my tabs in Fx.Code:"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Control]\[Page_Down]"" m:0x0 + b:6 "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Control]\[Page_Up]"" m:0x0 + b:7 "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]"" m:0x0 + b:8 "/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]"" m:0x0 + b:9
Damn, what an arduous task. Setting up evdev and xbindkeys was fine, but trying to find the text codes for xvkvd was a pain in the ****. I couldn't find them listed anywhere...
In XP I bind the tilts to Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab as it has proven a little more reliable than Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn. So naturally, I tried to copy that. No dice. xvkbd doesn't seem to like \[Control]\[Shift]\[Tab] or \C\S\t (from man pages) or any combination of those I could think of.
I ended up running xvkbd (once I figured out it was just a virtual keyboard) then trying to simulate what I wanted. Turns out the Ctrl+Shift+Tab doesn't actually work properly in xvkbd (for me at least). Firefox responds to the keypresses from my real keyboard fine; so I figure it must be a problem with xvkbd. Hence, just settled for Ctrl+PgUp.
Works fine mostly, sometimes it moves two tabs with only one tilt (same prob both ways) - about one in every ten tilts. Not sure if this is the mouse or evdev or xbindkeys or xvkbd or Firefox. Too many links and not enough experience with Linux to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm have an ibm thinkpad. My mouse works fine now, however, I no longer can use the touchpoint or touchpad. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
