    You can use piper (available on github) to configure the leds, dpi etc. through a UI. But this only works when the mouse is wired. It won't detect the g900 currently in wireless mode. However, as the setting are stored internally in the hardware of the mouse, you can just configure it when plugged in and then unplug it. Though looking forward to being able to do this wirelessly too.

    as you can see, your mouse is called 'logitech inc' or 'logitech receiver'. i guess it will be called better and maybe even handled by non-generic module

    That's it.
    But that's also enough for 99% of use cases.

    With tools as such, you can access all the additional bell and whistles which aren't standardized yet in USB HID protocol.
    (Switch on coloured LED lights, switch the mouse sensitivity between different DPI settings, map hardware macros to buttons, change the wireless binding to devices, etc.)
    Ah, I see, thanks for clarifying.

    device name probably with lsusb, list of modules with lsmod. also you could check dmesg or journalctl -f during receiver insertion.

    Sorry for asking, but what's the difference compared to without the driver? I've been using my g900 for like year now in wireless mode.

    Cool, input devices have been one of the weakest parts of the Linux kernel. It does seem to be speeding up a little bit but is still months after release. I'm thinking of picking up a G305 or G Pro Wireless and it doesn't look like either of them are fully supported (and the DPI toggles and performance/battery mode toggles are in software so having support would be very helpful).
