I've finally managed to install Ubuntu in dual boot on my PC. Only problem is that I can't use my mouse, which is a Logitech G300.
Basically, the only things that work are the pointer and the scroll up/down. All clicks from all button just do nothing.
Every issue about this mouse seems to be about erratic behaviours of the buttons, or remapping them but I don't have any behaviour at all.
I've tried the methods in this thread but nothing works.
I've also tried to use the command
xinput test <id> to see what is going wrong and the results are quite surprising.
Basically, the mouse is listed twice in the xinput list : Once as a mouse, once as a keyboard. When I test the mouse side, clicking the buttons do nothing, as I would expect (Moving and scrolling do work though). Testing the keyboard side however, shows that the buttons events are registered, but fired as motion events I guess.
Since I'm back on Windows to write this question, I don't have the exact results but a left click would result in something like this :
I also checked the button mapping for both the mouse and keyboard device, and the mouse has a 1 to 24 mapping, whereas the keyboard has nothing.
Is there anything I can do ? I'm honestly all out of ideas and I don't really want to buy another mouse when this one works fine ...
