A Linux driver that made the extra buttons detectable in xev, and a simple CLI program that allowed you to change DPI settings, would be. About six years ago I approached them and they refused to even release information specs useless to people that didn’t buy their hardware that would let us write our own Linux drivers for their products, much less add their own support. For even more AMAs, check out our wiki link by clicking here. I mean, the trackpad works perfectly with absolutely zero configuration. I’m currently asking Logitech for Linux support for the Performance MX mouse, and possibly other products.

The volume pot is noisy. Please offer a solution. I’ve forgotten my password. I hope we’ll get them to listen.

Please re-enable javascript to access full functionality. So you’re saying because there’s no commits by logitech. Detectability means reprogrammability minus these special mouse functions.


The operating system is a collection of the basic instructions that tell the electronic parts of the computer what to do and how to work. If it becomes clear that we won’t get support pinux the near future, I’ll attempt to reverse-engineer the USB protocol for at least setting the DPI for a single mouse connected to the receiver.

Harmony is more of an issue. What is free software? You currently have javascript disabled. It’s not an ideal solution, I know, but I’d rather use it a few times to set some properties than having to either find a friend’s computer or “buy” a Windows licence.

I have now dual booted with Ubuntu 7. What do you mean by “internal to the mouse”? No support requests – This is not a support forum! Submit a new link. Please tell me an equivalent hardware manufacturer that is more “open” in their development and technical documentation.

That’s gonna be damn frustrating three years from now when you’ve upgraded the distro, the binary blob does some sort of kernel magic that doesn’t work on the setpoit you’re currently using and you need to change the settings on the mouse. I was amazed how much better my Razer Megladon worked on Ubuntu versus W7. My Logitech wireless mice and keyboards work fine with Linux. I have not needed to install any sort of proprietary software in any operating system to make full use of the mice.


Would anyone be interested in a logitecn spec?

I solved this issue long ago and now no longer use Ubuntu, I have switched to Kali: I’m just fine with the buttons I already use. Logitech makes really good hardware.

Want to add to the discussion? I use my current laptop as a desktop, and I prefer to use an linuxx mouse. Or clicks outside the window on another one. No misdirecting links, sites linxu require a login, or URL shorteners – In short: Posted 17 June – Is the “Set DPI” function not already bound to a physical button?

You really can’t beat an MX or G or whtever the new model is.
