Unhappy G-Reaver Mouse not working at all on Mint 13


Hello everyone,

i'm new to this forum, as i have been trying other forums and i found this one with a lot of info in it the past couple of days.

My problem starts when i bought a new gaming mouse, called G-Reaver (by team scorpion, China). Great mouse for the price. It does work perfectly in Windows XP (notebook). But i have problems when connecting it to my Mint desktop. It does not work at all.
The mouse has some lights on it, and those work, so it's receiving energy but it's not being detected by the OS.
Will show you some info about it:
Quote:
OS: Linux Mint 13 (Maya) 32 bits - Desktop edition (Cinnamon)
Kernel: 3.2.0-26-generic
CPU: AMD K8 Athlon 4600+ @2.4GHz
RAM: 2 Gb DDR2 @ 800 MHz
HDD: WD Caviar blue, 320 Gb @ 7200 rpm
Mother: MSI am2 + nForce 410 (GeForce 6150)
Code:
$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 009: ID 24c9:1006  
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 1532:010b Razer USA, Ltd 
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 062a:327c Creative Labs
I think my mouse is "Bus 002 Device 009: ID 24c9:1006", because the Razer it's my keyboard (arctosa) and "creative labs" it's my wireless mouse that i'm using until i get the g-reaver working.
Code:
$ lsusb -v -t
/:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci_hcd/8p, 12M
    |__ Port 4: Dev 3, If 0, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
    |__ Port 4: Dev 3, If 1, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
    |__ Port 5: Dev 9, If 0, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
    |__ Port 5: Dev 9, If 1, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
    |__ Port 5: Dev 9, If 2, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
    |__ Port 6: Dev 10, If 0, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 12M
/:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci_hcd/8p, 480M
A friend told me that 480M it's a bus transfer property from usb 3.0, but my mouse is 2.0 so i don't know what's going on with this, seriously, no clue.
Code:
$ xinput --list --short
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Razer Razer Arctosa                     	id=10	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ MOSART Semi. 2.4G Wireless Mouse        	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Razer Razer Arctosa                     	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ G-SPY USB Gaming Mouse                  	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
Look at this, G-SPY USB Gaming Mouse should be refering to my G-Reaver, but it's recognized as a keyboard (???) Hope someone will understand what's going on and how to fix it, because i have no clue at all.

Thanks in advance

So my mouse isn't supported on linux kernel at the moment, as you can see in http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids all the devices that are, well, mine is not.

No solution to this, and of course, no solution from anybody at this forum. Hope that anyone who has the same problem will reach this post and see there is no solution, because asking in forums seems to be pointless do to the lack of cooperation from anybody.
