    Logitech MX500 button linking?


    Hey all. Nice fourms ya have here.

    Not a simple question and I have yet to find an answer.

    I have recently installed SuSE 8.2 and am trying to get my MX500 mouse to work. It works fine for the Left/Right and scroll. But it causes the entire system to lockup if I click on the scrollup or down button.
    Problem is it has left, right, scroll (is this 3 buttons , scrollup, down, and middle click), and button up above scroll and button down below scroll and button below these buttons LOL. I assume its 8buttons or 10 buttons depending how you look at it. I can not get more then 7 to be detected at a time. Anyone have a solution to my problem I would be willing to buy ya a beer.

    Other things I am gonna try to get running soon: DVD player, Divx Codec. I am in love with the DEV IDE thats provided and expect to spend hours playing with it tonight. If I dont freeze the system by clicking the wrong mouse button that is.

    suse 8.2 uses the 2.4.20 kernel? (correct me if i'm wrong)

    as far as I am aware the mouse drivers will not support more than 7 buttons on a mouse. I'm afraid the only advice I can give is to use a different mouse, which may not be too much of a good thing for you.

    sorry, i know it isn't the best of replys, but I thought I should try my best
