Logitech Mouse goes crazy

Hello everybody,
since this morning I have a little problem with my mouse. Last night, everything was OK!

OK, how can I describe it? The mouse can no longer perform properly on the screen. She jumps at each move back and forth, mainly on the left side of the page. The keys still functioning!

I also did a test with a second mouse, and the same result. In my Linux Mint installation the mouse runs without problems.

I hope I could explain the problem of course!

Greetings,
Stefan

What did you change on your system last night?

I presume that installation is on the same machine, yes?

Does the problem also occur if you load up the live session from the BunsenLabs ISO image?

Yes, on the Live ISO is the same problem. However, after installing everything was OK and the mouse worked without problems.

That's a bit worrying.

I have to go to $DAY_JOB now, I'll look at this again tonight wink

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

Yes that's it!
Is there a program with which I can configure the mouse? Speed, buttons etc?

I use "lxinput" for that. Should install without pulling in other LXDE dependencies...

`xset` is the command to configure the mouse

man xset

Get current settings:
xset -q

Example:
xset m speed 1 accel 1

There is some configuration available in the Openbox GUI config ( Preferences -> Openbox -> GUI Config tool -> Mouse);

Also see `man synclient`

There used to be a gui configuration tool for wheezy which you might be able to use: `gpointing-device-settings`

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

I couldn't find any way to configure the extra mouse buttons with either xset of the openbox/rc.xml, so I use xbindkeys to call xte to emulate keys presses, pgup and pgdown, when mouse  clicks with buttons 5 and 4. (my .xbindkeysrc)

"xte 'key Page_Up'"
  b:9

"xte 'key Page_Down'"
  b:8

xte comes with the package xautomation, and you might have to install them ( they are in the debian repositories.) 
I see there's a package in the debian repos called xbindkeys-config, which is a gui for xbindkeys. I never used it though, but it might be worth looking at too if you take this route.

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

Thanks pingu, but the problem is not the key assignment but the uncontrolled jumping of the cursor when moving the mouse. But I'll take a look.

I just wanted to reply to this question (because I`ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to assign keybindings to the mouse buttons like the logitech windows software does ):

but of course, none of this will be useful if your mouse keeps acting crazy. I'm sure somebody will help you with that soon though.

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

@searchone: can I ask you to unplug the mouse and then open a terminal window and run this command:

udevadm monitor

Then keep the terminal open and plug the mouse in.

This should give some output in the terminal, please post that.

Keep the terminal open and move the mouse around a bit and trigger the unwanted behaviour and if there is any new output generated in the terminal, post that as well.

Thanks!

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

@searchone

I wonder if it is a graphics driver problem? Did you just upgrade Nvidia by any chance?

EDIT: I see from the screenshot you posted that you have an nvidia GPU. It might be worth investigating that.

Re: Logitech Mouse goes crazy

Hello BLenderer,
I will take a closer view my NVIDIA GPU. Thank you!
