Logitech Cordless Desktop Optical and XFree86 3.3.6


I have the Logitech Cordless Desktop Optical combination of keyboard and mouse (mouse model is M-RR63). The keyboard works fine but the problem is to get the mouse work in XFree86 version 3.3.6. If I use protocol PS/2 or IMPS/2 and move the mouse left or right the cursor moves up and down but not left nor right (moving the mouse directly up and down does nothing) and if I press a button on the mouse the cursor moves one or two pixels to the right. I tried the Microsoft protocol and then the cursor goes crazy, all over the screen. I'm using the USB port and another USB mouse works perfectly. The Logitech mouse has been tested with another computer with XFree version 4.x and it works.
Is there anything that could be done to get the mouse to work with version 3.3.6?

Ok, I bought this setup yesterday and hit exactly the same problem. The issue appears to be that the usbmouse module does not like this mouse (or vice versa, if you like). The fix is to use the hid module instead. You might need to compile the hid module and fiddle with /etc/modules to make sure hid gets loaded at boot.

Actually i got the mouse movement to work already before.. Did something like what you said.
Now my problem is that all the mouse buttons act like the first button..
I started a new thread with this new problem since I wasn't getting any answers to this one..
