    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    This worked great on my Mx518 in edgy. I only needed to do section 1. The side buttons magically worked as forward and back buttons automatically after doing section one, and since there is no cruise control on the 518 I ignored that section (and I prefer my + and - buttons to change resolution on the fly anyway... very useful in GIMP and gaming). I would like to be able to do something with the application switcher button, and the click wheel button. For now I'm happy with my back and forward buttons though.

    Re: HOWTO: Configuring Logitech mice in Ubuntu 6.06: New Guide

    I have a Logitech MX500 that worked flawlessly after following this guide, but after a fresh install (and kernel upgrade) it doesn't seem to be working.

    edit: I'm running Edgy/Gnome

    For clarity's sake, before I follow this guide, my mouse works, but the side buttons do not work.

    I'll post as much information as I can.

    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    yields

    Code:
    I: Bus=0010 Vendor=001f Product=0001 Version=0100
    N: Name="PC Speaker"
    P: Phys=isa0061/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
    H: Handlers=kbd event0 
    B: EV=40001
    B: SND=6
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c025 Version=9802
    N: Name="B16_b_02 USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input1
    H: Handlers=mouse0 event1 ts0 
    B: EV=7
    B: KEY=ff0000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    B: REL=103
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c509 Version=1904
    N: Name="Logitech USB Receiver"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input2
    H: Handlers=kbd event2 
    B: EV=120003
    B: KEY=10000 7 ff800000 7ff febeffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe
    B: LED=1f
    
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=046d Product=c509 Version=1904
    N: Name="Logitech USB Receiver"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input1
    S: Sysfs=/class/input/input3
    H: Handlers=kbd mouse1 event3 ts1 
    B: EV=7
    B: KEY=1fffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff ffffffff 0 0 3878 d801d101 1e0000 0 0 0
    B: REL=103
    Hence, my local rules would look like this:

    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB Reciever", NAME="input/event9"
    event 9 is available, and I've tried several different available events.

    However, the problem seems to be with editing the xorg file.

    If my xorg file looks like this:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"evdev"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Device"	"/dev/input/event9" 
    EndSection
    my mouse doesn't respond at all.

    Would I be able to follow section 2 without section 1 working, if my mouse is already working without it? Or is section 2 dependent on section 1?

    I'm noticing the same symptoms. They appear to have started after my dapper->edgy or the recent X.org upgrade.

    Well, I had success on Edgy in the past, so I don't think that is the problem. Perhaps the recent updates to xorg are the suspect?

    The wireless mice need a bit different setup which I don't remember for sure how to do. It's somewhere in this thread, try searching this thread for "Logitech USB Reciever"

    The MX/VX Revolution howto tells you how to get around the problem with two "Logitech USB Receiver" fields.

    You need to make the udev rule look something like this:

    Code:
    KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", SYSFS{../name}=="Logitech USB Receiver", SYSFS{../phys}=="usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input1", NAME="input/event9"
    You need to replace the bold part with your USB location for the device that shows up in cat /proc/bus/input/devices with a "mouse" in its handlers section. I used the one bg1256 gave in his /proc/bus/input/devices.
    echo -e "\x6f\x61\x73\x61\x6c\x6f\x6e\x65\x6e\x40\x67 \b\x6d\x61\x69\x6c\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d"
    It compiles! Ship it!

    Hmmm... changing the udev rule doesn't seem to make a difference. I'll explore the thread you posted to see if anyone else is having a problem similar to mine.

    edit: just so I'm clear, everything on the mouse works before I follow this guide except the back / forward buttons.

    But, once I edit the evdev rule, the mouse does not function at all. And I had this all working one time before, but after a fresh install of Edgy, it doesn't work...
