Review of Linux Compatibility

The Logitech T400 is a wireless mouse, which has a touch zone at the place where normally the mouse wheel is located. The mouse communicates with the PC vie the included Logitech Unifying Receiver, which is automatically recognized by the Kernel:

 kernel: usb 3-4: new full-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd
 mtp-probe: checking bus 3, device 2: "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb3/3-4"
 mtp-probe: bus: 3, device: 2 was not an MTP device
 kernel: logitech-djreceiver 0003:046D:C52B.0006: hiddev0,hidraw3: USB HID v1.11 Device [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:14.0-4/input2
 kernel: input: Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4026 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb3/3-4/3-4:1.2/0003:046D:C52B.0006/input/input18

To use the touch zone as a replacement for the scroll wheel, the X-Server has to be configured accordingly (e.g. xinput).

First the ID number of the Logitech mouse is needed. This ID can be found out with the command

xinput list

where the mouse is listed as “virtual core pointer”.

Afterwards, the the following command has to be executed

xinput --set-button-map <ID of mouse> 1 2 3 4 5 8 9 6 7

where <ID of mouse> has to be replaced by the number that is found by the first command. In order to get full automatic support of the mouse at each reboot the xinput –set-button-map command shown above should be added to the autostart list of the X-Server.

    A nice mouse design-wise, but there seems to be **NO** way to configure the middle button for X11 paste, so it’s essentially *USELESS* for my needs.

    • JeanBednarek says:

      I bought one today, to use on windows 8, and I just wanted to know how it works on Linux. I had nothing to do, just plug the receiver and power on the mouse, all worked fine. To use the middle button for X11 past, make sure you click the back end of the touch strip.
