What do you mean? It only moves in a 2cm square? The cursor is 2cm square? Your mouse has physically shrunk and you keep losing it?

I just had to join to laugh at that... ... ... lol.

I'm getting ready to try Linux for the first time (Mandrake 9.2) and I have a Logitech mouse so I hope it goes okay.

Sorry for the mistake.






The cursor is 2cm square not the mouse.

Cursor is moving perfectly.



Using aone corner of the icon it is possible to click and open files, but it is difficult.

Two years ago (while being a green noob) I was faced with a very similar problem.
I got instant help here. See this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=10590

Hope your problem is solved - On the notion of Logitec products I would like to suggest voicing your troubles with Logitec equipment to Logitec in a friendly manner asking them for "better" Linux support.

I have myself done so as I while helping a friend found that Logitec does not currently have Linux support for their products and that most all driver issues etc. are solved by users figuring out little tricks for themselves.

As I would like to have the chance to "upgrade" from my trusty Trackman when it goes to greener pastures I approached Logitec who responded that they had no plans in the near future.

However every friendly letter suggesting cooperation between the community and Logitec that they receive will be an indication to the company that they stand to loose potential customers unless they join in, as those of us using Logitec products will not continue to do so unless they are properly supported...

I agree Nimoy and we should send some nice letters asking Microsoft to do the same for their mice and keyboards too...

Why not WL - being civil doesn't hurt.... and bear in mind that Microsoft has changed from along the lines of "NEVER A LINUX PRODUCT", to actually mumbling about - Not in the near future, when it comes to Office.

Can't remember the interview.... but there is room for change - Everywhere!

And going from NEVER to not in the near future is BIG CHANGE, especially coming from Redmond - The future is wide open!

BTW I am not being sarcastic and do not take your reply in that way either!
