    Contribute support for your mouse to libratbag on GitHub.

    Here is an example device file:
    https://github.com/libratbag/libratb...device.example

    Run "lsusb" to get information about your device. You can use the --verbose parameter for extra information.

      Well, that's disappointing; I was expecting a Logitech keyboard that had high resolution scrolling.

        Same here, or at least a mouse that had high resolution typing. Personally, I'm holding out for a USB3 keyboard and mouse. USB2 is too slow for my l33t gaming moves.

          Peter Hutterer's article on the patches http://who-t.blogspot.com/2018/12/hi...olling-on.html

          TL;DR is: old Microsoft mice are using standard HID protocol which Microsoft themselves got into standard in time of Vista. But for some reason newer MS mice doesn't seem to use it anymore. Also behavior of their mice wildly varies, but apparently it was dealt with somehow. Logitech are using a custom (proprietary?) protocol, which was implemented.

          [quote="Peter Hutterer"]Coincidentally, if you know anyone at Microsoft who can provide me with the specs for their custom protocol, I'd appreciate it. We'd love to have support for it both in libratbag and in the kernel. Or any other vendor, come to think of it.[quote]
