    Default Logitech MX1000 half buttons are not working

    Hello,
    I have a Logitech MX1000 mouse. Until my upgrade from 13.2, 10 from the 11 buttons were working. I am almost sure that the KDE 4 control panel was showing the mouse as an MX1000, but I don't remember now. What was not working was the "Show windows" button.

    After my upgrade to 42.3, I have only the 5 of them working.

    What is working:
    1. Classic 3 buttons
    2. Back/Forward buttons (side buttons)
    3. Scrolling wheel

    What is not working:
    1. Page up/down buttons (top and bottom of the scroll wheel)
    2. Tilt - Scroll left/right


    It's obvious that the button is recognized as a Logitech device, but other than that, I have no idea about the model that is recognized etc.

    Code:
    mouse:
      /dev/input/mice      Logitech Cordless Mouse Receiver
    
    grep -i logitech /var/log/messages
    2017-11-05T16:02:22.937080+02:00 peter kernel: [    2.981798] input: Logitech USB RECEIVER as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/0003:046D:C50E.0001/input/input3

    So, how can I see if the mouse if correctly identified as MX1000?
    And, most important, how do I configure the rest of the buttons?

    Which Xorg input driver is in use?
    Code:
    grep "Using input driver" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    * I would expect it to be libinput but it may be something else

    If 'libinput-tools' is installed, then 'libinput-list-devices' can be used to get a few device attributes reported...
    Code:
    sudo libinput-list-devices
    Current button mapping can be got from
    Code:
    xinput get-button-map <Device>

    Default Απ: Logitech MX1000 half buttons are not working

    Code:
    [     5.657] (II) Using input driver 'libinput' for 'Power Button'
    [     6.465] (II) Using input driver 'libinput' for 'Video Bus'

    [  6187.197] (II) Using input driver 'libinput' for 'Microsoft Natural® Ergonomic Keyboard 4000'

    It looks like it's getting only the receiver, not the mouse.
    Code:
    Device:           Logitech USB RECEIVER
    Kernel:           /dev/input/event3
    Group:            5
    Seat:             seat0, default
    Capabilities:     pointer 
    Tap-to-click:     n/a
    Tap-and-drag:     n/a
    Tap drag lock:    n/a
    Left-handed:      disabled
    Nat.scrolling:    disabled
    Middle emulation: disabled
    Calibration:      n/a
    Scroll methods:   button
    Click methods:    none
    Disable-w-typing: n/a
    Accel profiles:   flat *adaptive
    Rotation:         n/a
    And then... boom!
    Code:
    xinput get-button-map 9
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
    So, it's 20 buttons... But, the device has only 11...
    And of course, KDE doesn't care about the rest of them.

    Ok, so that confirms libinput is in use as expected.

    It looks like it's getting only the receiver, not the mouse.
    Code:
    Device:           Logitech USB RECEIVER
    Kernel:           /dev/input/event3
    Group:            5
    Seat:             seat0, default
    Capabilities:     pointer 
    Tap-to-click:     n/a
    Tap-and-drag:     n/a
    Tap drag lock:    n/a
    Left-handed:      disabled
    Nat.scrolling:    disabled
    Middle emulation: disabled
    Calibration:      n/a
    Scroll methods:   button
    Click methods:    none
    Disable-w-typing: n/a
    Accel profiles:   flat *adaptive
    Rotation:         n/a
    That's just how the USB receiver annunciates itself, but I guess it might have an influence on how the device is handled by libinput.

    And then... boom!
    Code:
    xinput get-button-map 9
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
    So, it's 20 buttons... But, the device has only 11...
    That will be the number reported from the device itself, even though only a subset are connected to actual physical buttons.

    You could use 'libinput-debug-events' to help with debugging perhaps. Refer https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...roubleshooting

    It may be possible to get some of the "missing behaviour" enabled by way of a custom Xorg file (in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory).

    Just in case these wiki pages are helpful with getting the horizontal scroll function working....

    Default Απ: Logitech MX1000 half buttons are not working

    It's very frustrating in 2017 to talk for the mouse buttons, like we did in 1997...
    It's even worse, when you consider that in KDE 4 it was working perfectly fine!

    I will study them and check what I can do. I am not sure that I like the fact that I have extra software for the standard libraries...
    Thanks!
