freezeups with Logitech wireless mouse
I purchased the Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard combo (I really like
it) but have always had some amount of trouble with them.
Under Mandrake, I could never start X with the wireless mouse connected.
If I did, the mouse would be very jerky. Instead, I had to connect a
wired mouse, start X, then connect the wireless mouse.
Under Debian (and XFree86 4.2), if I start X with the wireless mouse
connected, the computer freezes. I literally have to power-cycle it. If
I start X with a wired mouse then switch, it works fine.
Clearly, the mouse is the problem.
Any thoughts as to how I can fix this annoyance? Granted, I don't reboot
the machine often (this is Linux!) but if I forget to swap out the
mouse, rebooting becomes very time-consuming.
Related issue: the logitech mouse has a scroll wheel and an additional
button for the thumb that I've never been able to get to work under Linux.
Thanks in advance!
