    Default Lomoco Is Still Around For Logitech Mice On Linux

    Phoronix: Lomoco Is Still Around For Logitech Mice On Linux

    While we haven't talked about Lomoco in a few years nor has there been a new release of this free software project for Logitech Mouse Control under Linux in a while, Lomoco is still being developed. Andreas Schneider is still working on Linux support for the latest Logitech mice via Lomoco...

    I'm perfectly happy with my Steelseries Ikari Laser which does not require a driver for any OS to use it to its full potential. It would be nice to see other manufacturers follow their example, or at least support all the OS's their customers use their devices with.

    This is exactly why I don't buy Logitech products. If they cannot even be bothered to release a basic driver for their products then I am not wasting my time and money on them.

    This got me wondering: How good is the basic support from Logitech?

    Of course you get a "working mice" from all USB mice, but I guess it's the shizzniz you're actually paying extra for that you're lacking in their Linux support.

    I have an old MX510, and I'm suing logitech_applet with it to increase the dpi to it's maximum supported value. But that's it.

    Get a mouse that does not need driver. A mouse with DPI key on itself.

    Well, yes, that would be the solution today. But now my mouse is around 8 years old, and still working =)
    But when it fails to do so, I'll look into something that works well in Linux, out-of-the-box.

    I have the MX518 which has 2 little buttons above/below the wheel to increase/decrease dpi, so every time i restart i got in the habit of pressing that little button many times. There used to be an xorg.conf option to increase dpi that stop working at some point and never cared about it again. the rest of the buttons (i barely ever use) work just fine. I also have a joystick, wheel with pedals and pads from logitech and they all work fine.

    I agree, support the companies that supports us.

    Ow, WOW. Respect to developer.

    When I needed wireless mouse and 89key keyboard, I asked Logitech direct if they support linux for advanced functionality. The answer was "No, we do not support a community OS". Oracle, IBM, Novell are communists YEAH. Stupid answer, stupid company - stupid product. Using revoltec c202 and mstech lt390, no logitech garbage for me =)
