lomoco - Logitech Mouse Control for Linux


lomoco is a fork of lmctl, since we were not able to get in contact with the lmctl developer.

lomoco can configure vendor-specific options on Logitech USB mice (or dual-personality mice plugged into the USB port). A number of recent devices are supported. The program is mostly useful in setting the resolution to 800 cpi or higher on mice that boot at 400 cpi (such as the MX500, MX510, MX1000 etc.), and disabling SmartScroll or Cruise Control for those who would rather use the two extra buttons as ordinary mouse buttons.

A rewrite is currently be done (see current development)


./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

Send us the ouput of the following commands to the developer mailing list (see below):

We need the name of the mouse and the model name too. You can find on the hardware, look for M/N: ...
If it is a cordless mouse, we need the model name from both the mouse and the receiver! What kind of receiver is it (bluetooth)?
