Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

Hello,

I bought a Logitech G305 USB Mouse and am finding much to my displeasure that the mouse cursor fails to move after login. Interestingly, both my laptop touchpad and an older mouse still work, (that is, the Logitech mouse does not work) and the Logitech mouse *does* work when I'm in the login screen. Here's the current troubleshooting steps I tried:

1) I attempted to install Solaar, Piper, and ltunify as recommended in the Logitech Unifying Reciever page on Arch Linux. (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Logite … g_Receiver) Solaar properly detects the device and displays info, but the cursor still fails to move. Piper properly paired the device once and then never again. ltunify never worked and just crashed each time I tried using it.

2) lsusb lists my device under

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 046d:c53f Logitech, Inc. USB Receiver

, which is a start.

3) Attempting to check

dmesg -w

does not yield anything glaring. I can provide the specific output if requested.

4) I inspected `xinput -list-props` for both the Logitech mouse and the working older mouse and they look the same.

I'm out of ideas on how else I can troubleshoot this mouse, can someone give me advice?

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

Post a xorg.log, what are you logging into exactly? Which environment? They might have their own settings you need to configure

Shoot I knew I was forgetting something. I'm logging into a KDE Plasma environment, here is the relevant portion that contains information about the Logitech mouse.

Is there any extra info I should provide that might make this easier to help me debug the problem?

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

No idea whether that applies but https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Logitech_G300 makes it sound as if the device comes w/ a bogus keyboard device and

[     5.138] (II) event15 - Logitech G305: is tagged by udev as: Keyboard Mouse

certainly supports that idea.

Check the props for the device(s) and see whether you can disable the keyboard.

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

There is indeed a bogus keyboard that appears (at least when I check xinput list) and the included script does disable the keyboard as far as I can tell.

Device Enabled (185):   0

However the mouse cursor still unfortunately doesn't move. Would installing ratslap help?

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

Afaiu ratslap is only for programming the mouse.
Does it produce input in "sudo evtest" and "sudo libinput debug-events"?
If you look at the xinput properties for the mouse, is it enabled? Can you "xinput enable <name or id here>" it?

"sudo evtest" does yield events, here is the output for it:

As for libinput debug-events, the only events that generate input are those from the mouse buttons. One interesting thing to note is that libinput reports that the mouse button event codes aren't actually from the mouse. Here is the debug-events output showing the mouse buttons being pressed:

-event21  POINTER_BUTTON          +0.000s       BTN_EXTRA (276) pressed, seat count: 1

mouse even event21  POINTER_BUTTON          +5.282s     BTN_MIDDLE (274) released, seat count: 0

which may correspond to

-event21  DEVICE_ADDED            Keymapper                         seat0 default group16 cap:kp left scroll-nat

I'm pretty sure that corresponds to Keymapper, (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/keymapper/) which I did install to remap one of my keyboard keys. Would this be a possible source of the problem?

I can also give you the mouse properties from xinput -list-props.

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

It probably manages the device because it thinks it's a keyboard - try to stop the daemon and see…

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

Wow, it worked! (God having a mouse that actually scrolls properly feels so good) Thanks for the help.

So now there's the second problem of keymapper thinking that the mouse is a keyboard, is this something I should be taking over to the keymapper developers?

Re: Logitech G305 USB Mouse fails to move cursor after login

Probably - it tests for "const auto required_bits = (1 << EV_SYN) | (1 << EV_KEY) | (1 << EV_REP);" but might also have to test against any of REL_X,  REL_Y, REL_HWHEEL, REL_WHEEL, REL_WHEEL_HI_RES, REL_HWHEEL_HI_RES or make sure to not suck those events.
