Logitech MX700


I would really like to get this mouse, but haven't found anyone that has used it under linux. Does it work under linux?

Zoomer,

I just got this mouse today and I am currently using it on a box with RH 8.0 installed. It works flawlessly.

The only downside is that I have not found a way to program all of the buttons since Logitech only makes the configuration software for Micro$oft machines.

You can buy the mouse right now at Amazon for $42.99 after a $20 rebate.

Good luck...and let me know if you figure out how to program all the buttons to behave better!

Ryan

I'm having trouble with my mx 700 losing contact with the OS when I switch with my Belkin 4-port omniswitch. When I get to linux I can revive the mouse by Ctrl-Alt-Fn-ing out to a text screen and then back into X. Any ideas?
