Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome

Logitech MX900 bluetooth mouse worked fine in Gutsy and Hardy (updated from Gutsy). After update to Intrepid, movement of cursor on screen was jerky, making it difficult to position the cursor precisely. This also happened when using the Intrepid LIveCD. I have now reverted to Hardy and mouse again works as normal.

I tried to enter package as "gnome desktop" - it said there was no such
package, to put "I don't know" . When I did that it said there was 1
error so eventually I put "gnome" which it accepted.

Regards,

keith

My mouse has worked fine since Jaunty but I have the stuttering problem again now that I have installed Lucid! I used the entries below in the bluetooth config file previously but it does not seem to exist in Lucid.

BLUETOOTH_ENABLED=1
HIDD_ENABLED=1
HIDD_OPTIONS="--master --server"
HIDD_OPTIONS="-i 00:07:61:1d:78:2d --server"
#line above enabled Jaunty

This problem still exists in Lucid 10.04.

The Logitech MX900 mouse used to work OK but is now so jerky that's it's unusable. Common workarounds mentioned on the internet about this problem refer to config settings that no longer seem to exist in Lucid.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Can you test this with a Live CD of Maverick (Ubuntu 10.10) please? If this is still a problem, please run "apport-collect 294822", and if asked please allow it to "Change Anything" in Launchpad. This will grab all the relevant information for this bug report for the latest version. Thank you.

Hello,

yesterday I upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.10 and unfortunately my bluetooth mouse (MX 900) shows now the described behaviour. With Ubuntu 10.04 the problems are there, too.

I have connected the mouse using the bluetooth hub (connected to USB) which was delivered together with the mouse by Logitech.

I am having this issue myself as well. I am on Ubuntu 11.10 and the mouse is practically unusable. I have been making due with a USB mouse but this is no longer an option for me as I have 4 systems set up with KVM and a dedicated monitor on one system, the one with the bluetooth. Is there any fix or any word on this? Is the problem in Bluez or in xorg input?
