Mapped / Assigned Mouse Buttons On Logitech Mx5x0


A friend and i were arguing about what 'should' be mapped / assigned to the different buttons on our logitech mx5x0 mice. I personally have the left back thumb to double click, front to minimize all, scroll wheel click is alt+f4, button behind the scrollwheel is auto scroll down and the one behind that is restore all, with the front button being mapped to backspace. I use basically the same thing for gaming but when world of warcraft comes out i'll probably make a specific set for it. When i had a 5 button ms intellimouse i had mapped keys much the same way, double click, close, and show/hide desktop.

Mouse With 3 Buttons And A Scroll Wheel

I need to find a mouse that has 3 buttons and a scroll wheel. I do not want one where the scroll wheel is meant to be the 3rd button. I need 3 actual buttons and also a scroll wheel (and if that happens to be a button that is ok i guess). There is some software i use that really needs a middle/3rd button, but it is impractical, annoying, uncomfortable, etc to use the wheel as a button i need to press alot. Any ideas?

Mouse Buttons Non Functional After 5 Or 10 Minutes

This past couple of days i've been reformatting and re-installing windows and tweaking my partition sizes. However, yesterday evening, after finishing loading up windows xp and in the middle of loading my programs my mouse buttons just stopped working for no apparent reason. The cursor movement works just fine but the buttons are non responsive. I reformated and reinstalled windows again this morning thinking everything will be fine but low and behold during my program load up the buttons packed up again after about 5 or 10 minutes. Any ideas?

Ratpadz Xt Mouse Pad For Logitech G9 Mouse

I have the g9 mouse which is awesome but my current mouse pad seems to not work sometimes. It acts like a ball mouse does when you don't clean it for a long time. It skips and doesn't seem to track till i mess with it. It is rare when it happens but it does happen. The mouse pad i use is just a cheap cloth one i got from fry's for 3 bucks. I was looking into getting a new mouse pad. Specifically the ratpadz xt because i can send it back if i don't like it or it doesn't work the way i am expecting it to. Does anyone have a g9 mouse and a ratpadz xt pad? How does it work? Do you have something else you prefer over the ratpadz xt? I want to get a pad that doesn't skip.

Mouse Pad For Logitech G5

I'm ordering a logitech g5 and was wondering if i really need a mouse pad for it? I could care less if the mouse pad gives me that slight edge. Will it work ok on my desk (wood)? The reason i don't want a new mouse pad is because i have a very small area for my mouse and i couldn't fit a mouse pad really without cutting it.

Logitech G5 Laser Mouse

So i picked up this logitech g5 laser mouse at a garage sale last year for $1, brought it home and found out that it skipped around when attempting to move the cursor. It jumped left and right when i was moving vertically, and its movement was very sporadic and intermittent. I cleaned it out and the issue persisted. Eventually i decided to install the software / driver: setpoint. It all worked right away after that. The skipping juts went away. That was all on my windows box. Problem is that i want to use this on my os x box, and there is no driver for os x. Also, using overdrive for os x wasn't able to change the jumping around. I read through some logitech kb articles, and they suggested updating the firmware on the mouse. I did that, and the issue persisted. What i am looking for is this:
Is this a common issue? Has anyone seen this issue, with the g5 skipping around on the screen?

Long shot - any suggested solutions for getting this to work on my os x box?

Logitech G5 Mouse Problem

So i've had an original logitech g5 for around 3 years now and it's worked perfectly with multiple computers, but in the last month or so i've had some frustrating problems with it. Just over a month ago i purchased a logitech wave keyboard and installed the setpoint software to use the function keys with xp and vista (i dual-boot and the problems seem to occur with both oses). All was well, but i seem to be getting the following problems:

1) mouse will freeze for a few seconds (usually 5-15 sec. ) While playing a game (any game. Bf2142, cod4, waw, coh, l4d, etc. ). This freezing includes things like the dpi lights being on but the mouse being unresponsive and the dpi lights going off totally (ie. Like the mouse being unplugged). Occasionally when this happens the dpi setting is automatically lowered when the mouse becomes responsive again. 2) mouse will permanently disconnect (no lights) while gaming and during normal usage requiring it to be unplugged and reinserted. 3) mouse will become totally unresponsive (with lights on) while gaming and during normal usage requiring it to be unplugged. 4) dpi lowering itself during normal use (spreadsheets, word procession, browsing, etc. )

I've uninstalled setpoint, but the disconnects happen on average about once per hour during normal use and once every few minutes while gaming. I'm using a non-oc'd c2d e6850 and have 4 gigs of system memory so it's not a resource problem and i've also tried switching the usb ports and using a hub, but that has been unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated.

Logitech Mx 510 Mouse Problem

I've been having mouse problems for the past three months or so. I had an mx510 mouse (from logitech) and it began to cut out. Eventually, it got so bad that every ten seconds or so, it would cut off. Sometimes my pc (i have win xp) would play the noise it plays when you unplug a device and the light would go out (it's an optical mouse). Sometimes the mouse light would just go out with no sound. Sometimes a tooltip bubble would pop up saying that a device is no longer working. After it cut out, it would sometimes begin to work again on its own-sometimes not. If i unplugged it and replugged it in (it is a usb mouse), it would work again, for a few seconds or a few minutes. So i purchased a new mouse (mx518 from logitech) and it worked pretty well for about a week or so and then started cutting out as well. Thus, i believe the issue is that the usb mouse is not getting enough power (i tried 5 different usb ports-2 on my monitor and three on my computer, and it cuts out on all of them). However, i have what i thought was a good power supply (and its relatively new-like 11 months old: (enermax liberty elt500awt atx12v 500w power supply 90v~265v (auto adjusted) ul, cul, tuv, cb).could the issue be with my motherboard perhaps (abit ab9 pro lga 775 intel p965 express atx intel motherboard)? Any other ideas? I don't want to use the ps2 port or whatever. Is a powered usb port my only option (any suggestions for good powered usb ports?). I tried reinstalling the setpoint driver from logitech as well, but that didn't help.

Logitech Mx610 Mouse Problems

I have been using the logitech mx610 mouse, which i bought new, for about half a year now. It's a wonderful mouse, but about two weeks ago, i started experiencing a problem. There seems to be something wrong with the left click. When i click on it, it does not stay clicked, so that when i try to drag and select items, some items get dragged and then the left click stops working, then starts working again so i end up dragging other items. Also, when i click the left click button, sometimes it double clicks. I have reinstalled the newest driver, to no avail. Can someone let me know how i can try to fix this or test to see what is wrong with it?

Logitech Wireless Notebook Mouse Problem

Anyone have a clue how i can get my logitech wireless notebook mouse to work with my dell latitude d600 after coming back from stand-by. The mouse will work, but only if i plug-in the usb key while the laptop is completely powered-off and then turn it on. I've tried a few different things and this is the only thing that will work. It's not that big of a deal, but i run to and from campus a lot and just like the load times from stand-by versus turning it on/off.

Problems With Logitech Vx Revolution Notebook Mouse

I don't know if the one i have is defective but i almost threw it through a wall last night. It was a replacement for a ms laptop mouse that was great but the dongle broke. My old mouse could track on anything, including couch cushions whereas i have not found a surface that the vx with track consistently on. It will be moving sideways then the cursor will stop and eventually move over some more. The left mouse button also sucks in that i have to press it 4-5 times for it to actually acknowledge that i pressed it. I never had any of these problems with my old ms optical mouse. Has anybody else had problems with their vx revolution mouse?

Logitech G5 Mouse Game Bind Problem

I've had a g5 for quite awhile, and i can't seem to get the thumb buttons to work as other mice have worked. My problem is that i want the two thumb buttons to work like the left/right/middle mouse buttons do. If i bind something to one of those buttons, it works to hold the key press until i release it. So if i bind crouch to mouse 2, it keeps a game in crouch until i release. However, if i bind crouch to either of the thumb buttons, it does not hold the crouched state. It crouches for a half second and comes right back up even if i hold the key down. I have tried changing the function of these two keys in set point to other keys to see if that might help (i have them set for normal windows as forward and back for the browser). Still does the same thing. I'm running vista 64. If i can't figure this out, i'm going to have to go mouse shopping as it's driving me crazy.

Logitech Mx1000 Mouse Custom Keys

Ok, so i;ve got logitech's wireless mx1000 laser mouse (about 2 years old) and it works great. Now, this is what i'd like to do. I'd like to lay on my bed which is about 10 feet away from my mouse's receiver. While i am watching tv shows from my bed, and want to fast forward, i have to take my wireless mouse, put it on a flat surface and try to clcik the pointer at the appropriate spot on windows media players "tracking" bar. My mouse has a scroll wheel that tilts to the left/right

Is there any way i can set them to tilt right = fast forward, left = go back?

I cant find "program specific" settings (like my old miscrosft mouse) in logitechs "setpoint" and im using the latest version. Any help on how to do this?
Or any other options?

Its just that at that rage, the mouse pointer is a tad small to accurately click on the trackbar.

Logitech Mx610 Wireless Laser Mouse Features

So my nyko air-flo mouse has finally decided it's going to act like it has a split personality. It decides to jump all over the screen when i'm using it. I've tried various mousemats and surfaces, same problem. This can be annoying when you click on something and the mouse decides to jump, the thing you clicked on get's dragged around everywhere. I've decided to get a new one, i've ordered it today off of ebay (good old ebay, you've gotta love it) it's a logitech mx610 wireless laser mouse. It's got some rather cool features:

- Syncs with your pc - it sleeps, wakes up and turns on and off when your pc does, saving battery life. - E-mail and im notification buttons, these buttons light up when you have a new e-mail / im and a press of the button takes you to the app. - Volume control, allowing you to increase, decrease or mute your volume from the mouse itself. - Zoom, the scroll wheen tilts to allow you to zoom in and out from the mouse itself too.

Logitech Mouse Is Jerky - Issue With Setpoint Driver

I've recently switched from ati to nvidia and ever since my mouse is jerky as ***. When i vnc in to my pc it's completely unnoticable, but when i work on it it's annoying. I just formatted and reinstalled windows and that didnt fix it. I'm guessing there's an issue with logitech's setpoint driver and nvidia, what it may be i haven't a clue. I'm running the latest version of setpoint and uninstalling it doesnt help. Using the latest version of the omega drivers and switching between the latest nvidia to older versions didnt help. I have no idea how to fix this, any ideas?

Does Logitech G5 Will Not Work On Black Colored Mouse Pad ?

Has anyone here heard of the rumors that this mouse will not work on a black colored mousepad? If this is true, logitech really f'ed up and made a big mistake. A friend is looking to buy the g5 and had heard that it will not work on a black surface. There are even claims that logitech has confirmed this and is simply telling people to go out and buy a blue mousepad.

Logitech V220 Mouse Randomly Stoped Responding

My mouse is giving me some hard time. The last few days it just randomly stoped responding and i had to take the usb dongle in and out for it to start working again and today it completely stoped working. I decided to open the dongle to see if there are any loose welds on the pcb but everything seems to be ok. Now when i plug it in the only thing i get is either no response at all or a weird pop up message saying "usb device not recognized" i'm sure the problem is in the dongle and not the mouse, coz when i wiggle it and plug it in at weird angles it gets detected but only for a few seconds. Does anyone have any ideas?

Logitech Lx8 Laser Wireless Mouse Reviews

Does anyone know of any decent reviews for this mouse? I can't find anywhere what dpi it is and how accurate it is. It seems very similar to the g5, but some full specs for it would be good. Even the logitech site doesn't tell me what dpi and hz it operates at.
