Logitech Mouse Wheel Tilt doesnt work

Postby spherical » Mon Jan 30, 2012 10:14 am

Hello
I am newbe Linux user and I have problem with my mouse: Logitech M500 Corded device which has great drivers for Windows but they do not support Linux. Original drivers has great feature to define different shortcuts for each application separately e.g. For Firefox I usually asign Shift+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab for Wheel Tilt button Left and Right. I miss that functionality so much and there is no support for Wheel Tilt at all.
I tried hidpoint1 but no success.
How can I fix it?

Disappointing as it may be, Logitech does not have Linux driver support. Many functions of Logitech products that can me modified in Windows are not available in Linux. Also, I don't believe they will be in the future either. :(
Life is too short to waste it on Microsoft.

They have some products with Linux support e.g. Logitech Wireless Mouse M345. Only information about Linux support is: Linux® kernel 2.6+ http://www.logitech.com/en-roeu/mice-pointers/mice/9182
I plan to buy it next week so, if anyone have real experience with that mouse and linux please give some feedback.

Did you ever find a way to map them?
I just bought that mouse. Really great product, appart from the fact that I can't assign shortcuts to the tilts.
I usually use easystroke but it doesn't recognize the clicks as they are considered horizontal scrolling.

Since I didn't see this suggestion I'll mentioned BTNX, works great on a related distro
with a Logitech tilt-wheel mouse.
