Question Logitech G300 Mouse - Stable and Unstable movement on Kubuntu 11.04

Got the new logitech g300 mouse. It is stable on windows, but not too stable with Kubuntu 11.04. I know the mouse is new, but I was wondering if there some simple logitech modifications that might have it working decently till the drivers are worked out properly for it.

Currently, inside certain applications like X-Chat, the mouse in it's productivity mode works nicely. Outside on the Kubuntu desktop and some other programs like Sauerbraten, it is hard to shut down programs and it will randomly resize windows and normally when you press the mouse button 1 it moves to the center of the screen (top-bottom) on the left side then jumps back.

If there is no current fix that might make this work (not sure if there is), I would be willing to help out getting the mouse working correctly with any info or tests I can provide, I just don't know what sites develop the new settings for these mice or what would be needed.

Any hints or ideas would be welcome.

You could try installing "lomoco" ( Logitech Mouse Control ) and playing around with that. It's in the repos.

Disabling the keyboard part of the mouse worked for me, as described here:
