    Ok, that makes sense.

    For reference (not that you probably wanted to know), the Revolution allows a half-press of the wheel to enable/disable the clutch (if configured to do so by software), but it can also be enabled/disabled by sensing the speed that the wheel is being spun (the threshold is configurable). I'd say that it's software controlled, but that's only partially true. The settings stay applied even after reboots from Windows to Linux, so there is probably some sort of local storage on the mouse that retains those settings.
    Thanks for that precision.
    This one more argument in favor of my MX1100, as this mouse is more OS independant as the Revolution could be.

      You've got me there for now. I'm hoping that sometime soon I can get lomoco working with my Revolution (I haven't really tried yet).

        For those who could be interested, I still haven't changed the AA cells of my MX1100, bought at the end of february 2009. We are in the early days of june.
        I'm using the mouse for playing UT2004 and I never switch the mouse off (there is a little switch on the mouse that allow to turn the mouse off).
        The battery gauge on the mouse is still showing itself as indicating "full".

        The battery life is impressive, I didn't expect so much to be honnest.
        The battery is a standard Duracell, the one that I found on the box.

        I first was thinking about buying rechargeable AA. When I see that after 4 months of use (3/4 hours per day), the mouse battery gauge still indicates "full", I'll forget to buy rechargeable cells. Good Alkalines or lithium ones will go very well.

        I'll post back in that topic when the batteries will be completely dead, to let know how much months of battery life you can expect with that mouse.

          glad to find this thread!
          I just bought this mouse with the mx5500 keyboard and primarily use it under ubuntu.
          Does anyone know how to enable to side wheel? That's all that doesnt work for me.
          I think someone may have called it stealth scroll earlier, but either way its the left scroll button. I believe on windows its supposed to zoom in and out. I dont have any use for zooming in and out, but I'd like to know how to program it, still.

              I use the side scrolling without the use of btnx with the xorg-server-1.5.3 release, using "evdev" and "hal" (gentoo linux).
              I guess that latest ubuntu should take care of that nicely ?

              btnx has been stopped and is no more supported though.

              Note that lomoco (LOgitech MOuse COntrol) don't recognize the MX1100 (or, at least, didn't work for me 6 months ago, but that has perhaps changed ?). Is this project sill alive, that'll be a good question.

              Note that I still use the AA cells found in the box with the mouse. The power management of this mouse is really impressive !

                I'm not sure if the lomoco project is still going. I had to download the source for it and add in USB device IDs for both my MX518 and my MX Revolution. I ran into some weird runtime behavior with libusb2, so I didn't really push too hard into using the project... If I get bored in the future, I'll probably pick it up again and see if I can figure out what was going wrong.
