    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    I was able to get the mouse 'working' with altered config under Edgy by setting the driver to "evdev". Here's my current config:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
        Driver        "evdev"
        Option        "Dev Name"		"Logitech USB Receiver"
        Option        "Dev Phys"    	"usb-0000:00:02.0-4/input0"
        Option        "Device"      	"/dev/input/event3"
        Option        "Buttons"     	"8"
        Option        "ZAxisMapping"	"4 5 7 8"
    EndSection
    Adding 'core pointer' as suggested above stops X from starting.

    I still can't detect the side-scroll, even in 'xev'. Suggestions?

    Will probably need IMWheel for the tilt wheel...

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    Thanks, with a little tweaking I get every button on my G7 working properly in Edgy (side-scroll and all).

    Here are the changes I made to xorg.conf:
    I had to insert -- Option "CorePointer"
    Code:
    #Logitech G7
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Dev Name"      "Logitech USB Receiver"
            Option          "Dev Phys"      "usb-0000:00:1d.0-1/input0"
            Option          "Device"        "/dev/input/event2"
            Option          "Buttons"       "8"
            Option		"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5 7 8"
    EndSection
    And the setting I used for .xbindkeysrc
    Notice I had change to the mouse button numbers (8,6,7) from the original. I guess the key-bindings have changed. Check your's with 'xev'
    Code:
    "/usr/X11R6/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
      m:0x0 + b:8
    "/usr/X11R6/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Right]""
      m:0x0 + b:6
    "/usr/X11R6/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Left]""
      m:0x0 + b:7
    I tried setting the tilt wheel to change tabs in firefox, but it was far too sensitive.

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    NM. It works on my case, but not on my Icemat. i have to force it to work in windows by alt+f4ing the software for it. Is there a similar way to do that here?

    And to make the buttons work, i just put that in the xorg.conf file, then follow the rest of your instructions?

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    tried the advice on the 1st post on Gutsy and X would not restart... Gnome would not come back and I had to restore the backup copy of xorg.conf from within RECOVERY...

    any updated info on this for 7.10?

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    In order to make most of the buttons on my G7 work (except resolution buttons) on Kubuntu 7.10 I had to edit the mouse entry on /etc/X11/xorg.conf with this:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Option          "Phys"  "usb-*/input0"
            Option          "Device" "/dev/input/event4"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Name"  "Logitech USB Receiver"
    EndSection
    Also add the Identifier name that you choose, on the Section "ServerLayout" (around the bottom of the file) like this:

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
            ...
    	Inputdevice	"Configured Mouse"
            ...
    EndSection
    Keep in mind that you have to change the Phys and Device entries to the ones that you see when you type the command:
    Code:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices
    Now to reconfigure the resolution buttons (+, -):
    I encountered this guide which at the bottom suggest that by using the tool g5hack you can reconfigure those buttons.
    Although I compiled and run the tool I didn't manage to stop those button from changing the resolution.

    Can someone test that utility for G3/G5 or G7 and share his experience?

    Re: HOWTO: Logitech G7 Mouse

    This guide got my mouse working, but the sidescroll isn't detected by xev or xbindkeys -k, and the xbindkeys is somehow off... It's like that right now:
    Code:
    "/usr/X11R6/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
      m:0x0 + c:100
    Problem is that now my left key doesn't work, and when I thumb click it works as if I hit the left key...

    So howto fix that?

    I'm in the same boat as you. Sidescroll won't show up, except via
    Code:
    evtest /dev/input/event4
    Where it is listed as HWheel (so something's going right?)

    I had to use this xorg.conf section to get x to start:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "evdev"
            Option          "Protocol"      "auto"
            Option          "Dev Name"      "Logitech USB Receiver"
            Option          "Dev Phys"      "usb-0000:00:1d.1-1/input0"
            Option          "Device"        "/dev/input/mice"
            Option          "Buttons"       "8"     
            Option          "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection
    EDIT: the back button works perfectly now, so I'm really happy so far.
