    That is one ridiculously broken mouse. I have been looking for new a mouse, but it seems all the latest Logitechs are doing increasingly weird and broken shit, that will never work well outside their small specific target groups.

      I have a A4Tech mouse (witch I like very much) that have a annoying bug. It gets recognized as a joystick by the kernel driver, so some games have problems working with the actual joypad that I use, a Xb1 Controller.

      So I start to look at Logitech mouses (I already have a wireless keyboard with a unified receiver) and the M560 looked like the best candidate to buy (money wise). When I look at the reviews I couldn't believe at the design decisions regarding the functions of the buttons.

      In the end, I took the dust off a old Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 (what a name...) and loosed interest in the Logitech mouse. If this new kernel driver cold make it work normally in Linux, I can start thinking of buying it again.

          Logitech really goes down the drain...
          They used to make such good mice. But it seems they're getting crazy. I still have some older Logitech equipment but new devices currently are from Roccat.
          Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

            I have an A4Tech mouse with this bug too. So some months ago I got a Roccat Mouse and am happy ever since. Great linux drivers, super hardware, much smoother pointer movement.
            They are a bit overpriced, but I think the linux support is worth it.

              I looked at their mouses too, but they no longer sells wireless mouses.

                ROCCAT really is the way to go if you can afford it. But if you just want a cheap mouse, any 3-button mouse will work. It is true that they haven't updated their wireless line-up. It's my biggest petpeeve right now. Also they've stopped selling the optical Kone XTD.

                I'm personally waiting for their tenkeyless mechanical keyboard with RGB-lighting.

                  I want/need a wireless mouse with lateral buttons, back and forward "browser buttons". It's really useful um FPS games. The A4tech mouse got me used to small mouses, about 10/11 cm in length. The Microsoft Laser 5000 fells too big now.

                  The A4Tech modell I have is a G10 wireless model, with the browser buttons, a button to change configurations on the fly (I use it to change the DPI) and a macro button (between left button and the wheel) that I use as a turbo for the left mouse button. I can live without the configurations and macro buttons, butt the browser buttons is mandatory for me.

                  The problem is actually difficult to find a good, small wireless mouse with the browser buttons. Microsoft don't make then anymore, Roccat and Razer too, and Logitech has a long list of mouses with small butt annoying problems/limitations.

                    Sorry to hear that. Maybe you should just bite the bullet and get used to a larger mouse? :/ It will make buying mice easier in the future.
