I've bought an M570 mouse from Logitech. It runs plug and play with Ubuntu, but the system hangs on boot with the Logitech unify receiver inserted. I must unplug the USB receiver before booting and insert it again on the login screen. Nothing appears in syslog (it freezes at very early stage).

Note: Another Logitech receiver is plugged on my computer (Cordless keyboard receiver)

What can I do to make these devices work without freezing?

Have you tried changing the USB port? –  cprofitt Dec 5 '11 at 13:37
    
Yes, with no results –  Pascal Dec 5 '11 at 15:40
    
Solved ! You were right. Changing USB port on the same hub didn't solve freezing, but changing to the front panel USB port works. –  Pascal Dec 5 '11 at 17:23

Try changing the physical USB port that it is connected to on your computer. If it is in a hub, try moving the hub and/or the usb device itself.
