While Linux game developers and publishers have grown more interested in the Linux market-share over the past year following Valve's major Linux play, one of the sectors that is still lagging behind is gaming hardware and peripherals. Fortunately, Logitech is finally beginning to show their Linux cards.
As posted today in our forums
, Logitech is beginning to list "Linux compatible" products on their web-site. Sadly though at the moment, the list is still short with just showing off their M185 Wireless Mouse. A Linux compatible selector is shown next to Windows and OS X when browsing their products, which is a nice start but more is expected from the company.
Logitech hasn't officially released any Linux software or drivers for their gaming peripherals like advanced mice, keyboards/keypads, and audio products, but there is a growing independent software community
It was also last month I noted a coming Linux gaming peripheral play
. Besides Logitech, another company worth following for Linux-compatible gaming peripheral hardware is Roccat
, although the brand is less popular in North America.
