Bug Description

I have a Logitech Mx610 mouse, and all of it's special buttons doesn't work on linux.

I have contacted logitech, but they declared they were unable to support linux users.

The mouse has 12 buttons :

Left/Right/Center click (3) (those are the only ones that work)
Scrol up/down/left/right (4)
Zoom +/- (2)
Zoom 100% (1)
> and < (2)

TOTAL : 12

There is also another version of this mouse that has two additional buttons and with leds, one for email, and another one for IM (not the one that I have though)

there is a forum post with instructions on how to hack it and make it work : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=332256

Does 'xev' show any events when you press them?

Hi wladston,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you've made any customizations to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

Hi Wladston,
Can you test this in Karmic please? If it still does not work as expected, please provide both the "General information" and the requested information in the "In case some mouse buttons or scrollwheels don't work (as expected)" section. Thank you.

Okay, I did what you suggested Teej, but I am using the left-handed version of MX610 (which should not and does not make a difference):

Here's what xev says:

left-button: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 1, same_screen YES

right-button: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 3, same_screen YES

scroll-wheel-press: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 2, same_screen YES

scroll-up: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 4, same_screen YES

scroll-down: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 5, same_screen YES

The buttons for volume+,volume- and mute-toggle don't appear in xev but they *work*

forward: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 9, same_screen YES

backward: ButtonPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x6200001,
    state 0x10, button 8, same_screen YES

email-button: (like the volume-buttons) doesnt appear in xev, but it works!

IM-button: does not produce any xev event and is currently the only button not working

"The mouse is a bit strange - it has two logical "interfaces" for the USB receiver/transmitter. They are on the same plug, but they are treated as separate devices by the Linux USB subsystem. The first USB interface is the normal mouse device - it has the X/Y motion, the normal buttons and the scrollwheel. The five buttons down the left edge (Vol +, Vol -, Mute, Email and IM) are on the second interface, which probably has the additional features like battery status as well as the indicator LEDs for Email and IM."

Sorry I haven't been back to this bug report. There is enough information here for a developer to take a look at it, so I am marking it Triaged and will let them handle it from here. Thank you.

Hi Wladston,

This bug was reported against an earlier version of Ubuntu, can you
test if it still occurs on Lucid?

Lucid, please run the following command to refresh the report:

If you are not the original reporter, please file a new bug report, so
we can work with you as the original reporter instead (you can reference
bug 164793 in your report if you think it may be related):

  ubuntu-bug xorg

If by chance you can no longer reproduce the issue on Lucid or if you
feel it is no longer relevant, please mark the bug report 'Fix Released'
or 'Invalid' as appropriate, at the following URL:

I have a left-handed MX610, and on Lucid it works flawlessly:
- left and right mousebuttons work as they are supposed to: left-handed mouse so swapped
- forward and back button work in firefox
- scroll up/down works, left/right only tested in firefox
- volume buttons work
- mail starts default mail application (Thunderbird, thank you for changing default when installing a new app!)
- IM doesn't do anything

If someone could give me the best way to swap the button order of buttons 1 and 3 per device it would be appreciated, but I'd say this bug was resolved.
