Ubuntu :: Logitech SetPoint - Allows More Functions For Logitech Keyboards And Mice
Apr 15, 2010
Does anyone know of a variant on the Logitech SetPoint software (it allows more functions for Logitech keyboards and mice) for Ubuntu? Would the Windows version work in Wine? I didn't think it would because the app uses Bluetooth, and I don't know if Wine can do that.
I would like to be able to have two sessions, each with their own monitor and each having their own, assigned input devices, all off of one computer. In other words, two people would be able to use two different keyboards/mice and two different monitors simultaneously using two different sessions. Is this possible, or should I look into a terminal server machine?
I installed two apps that were supposed to give me more settings for my mouse. I installed from Synaptic and everything seemed to work fine, but I can't find anywhere to start the apps so I can do the adjustments. where I can find these to run them?
I'm having a very strange problem with my Logitech MX5000. It used to work fine but now I am experiencing some problems.When I start up my PC WITHOUT my spare wired keyboard plugged in, does not type more than one character -I mean only one character- after a random number of key presses (50-100 or more).However, if I start up my PC WITH my spare USB keyboard plugged in, my MX5000 works perfectly.Bluetooth (on) has recognized, installed and connected the keyboard. In fact, now, I am typing this message on MX5000 -with the wired keyboard connected to the PC.
Cannot for the life of me get my MX 5500 logitecheyboard/mouse combo to work with 10.04. It worked with 9.10 and 9.04 fine out of the box, but i upgraded my computer to the new version and suddenly it wont work at all. I have tried pairing it with the bluetooth manager to no avail. Did some research and i believe the problem is it wont switch over to CVS mode or something which would let it also work in the bios.
I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 and everything is ok except my USB Logitech Headset. The problem is that volume of the device is very low and I can't hear the music or any sound like I use to heard. Even if I increase the volume up to 100%, I still hearing the sound with a very low volume. But if I use the analog output of my sound card I can hear very well. I remember that i used to have this problem in ubuntu 9.10 but I fixed with a script that I found it in this forum, but I can't find it again.

I have two computers--a Zareason machine (no details yet) running 8.04. I also have a Dell 1525N laptop running 9.10. I purchased recently a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 Webcam. The video works on both systems with Ekiga and Cheese. I can also see the video in Flash applications (but *not* in Meebo even with the other person logged into Meebo). (Both computers are running the latest Flash plugins).
However, the built-in microphone is problematic. With 8.04, I get playback when I test it under System|Preferences|Sound--but with lots of echo. But I get no sound with any Flash chat applications. I've not been able to test it with Ekiga as the testee (a Windows 7 user) can't get Ekiga to work on his machine (probable Windows firewall issues). I haven't installed Skype because Skype pulled its 8.04-compliant .deb packages and I've not tried yet to compile it from source code.
With 9.10, the webcam works with Cheese (video) and I can get both webcam and mic to work with Skype. (Again, no test result possible for Ekiga until I get a testee). However--my Win7 testee friend says that when I log into Googlechat using Pidgin on my 9.10 laptop, a webcam icon appears next to my userID telling him that I have an open webcam (even when there's NONE actually plugged in). He doesn't see the same icon when I log into my 8.04 desktop with no webcam plugged in. I have searched Pidgin and my System preferences and see no evidence that any of these applications or my system sees a webcam that's not there.
So--how to get the mic to work? (I am thinking the simplest answer will be to simply upgrade my desktop to Lucid). And also, why the webcam icon in Googlechat even when no webcam is plugged in on my 9.10 laptop??
My goal is to be able to use my gamepad as a normal mouse, and also have some of the keys configured to open certain programs or do other things. Does anyone have any advice on what I need to install or if this is possible?
In a development project currently going on, we do plan to use an usb steering wheel for controlling an system by using its input. The device used is a "Logitech G27 Force Feedback Racing Wheel", which also has three pedals and a clutch, both connected to the steering wheel device itself and then to the pc using an usb connector.For i'd love to use ubuntu to connect that input controller, i'd like to know, if it is possible to read that devices inputs to the system using ubuntu linux. Important: It is not necessary to have a working driver that could be used in any games (e.g. TORCS), i only have to get the controller's outputs [and maybe set force feedback].I already did some searches on the www, but failed in finding any appropriate information on this topic.
Just found my old Logitech webcam again, and tried to get it to work on 10.04. Somehow this doesn't work. I tried searching the forum, but did not get an answer to my situation.
Here is what I can see: After connecting (or rebooting), dmesg shows the following lines uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:08cc) input: UVC Camera (046d:08cc) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.0/input/input5 usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
And that's it. No message that cam was registered to /dev/video<x>. I should add that I already have another cam (Philips) that works and is registered to /dev/video0, and I also installed a Hauppauge PVR350 card that also gets registered to various /dev/video<y> files. Why the Logitech cam won't register? I'm guessing I can't do anything until this cam has its own /dev/video<x>, right?
I upgraded recently to Ubuntu 11.04 and have been trying unsuccessfully since to use an old webcam: Logitech Quickcam Messenger. The system doesn't recognize it at all as far as I can tell, which it did on 10.10 (I didn't really use it then, I just remember I could get a picture at some point.
I found my web cam it is a Logitech Express cam I just want to know how to get the driver so I can use it in Firefox for like tinychat it works for cheese fine but That doesn't mean that it works for my web browser?
I'd like to get the scroll wheel's left and right tilting to work in firefox (go back and forward one page). A lot of the forums suggest ways to do this with xorg.conf, but I see that it's been removed in 11.2. The only mouse support in Yast is this "text console mouse model" thing- what is that?? At any rate, it doesn't have Logitech LX or MX series mice in its list.Any suggestions for getting this to work? Am I going to have to create an xorg.conf file, and what will break if I do? Any ideas what the direction is for Logitech mice in openSUSE? It sure would be great to have better support for mice in this distro
When I plugged my Logitech Headset into this computer, it wouldn't produce any sound. Checked /etc/asound, /proc/asound/cards, etc. The headset would turn up as a USB identifier instead as of "headset". That made me check /var/log/syslog first:
Then I took a new one from the package, (I prevent disaster and bought 3 of them) plugged it in and it worked as well. Conclusion: hardware defect. It is unlikely, but you should not exclude the possibility. BTW lousy quality, only 6 months old, and Logitech is supposed to be one of the better brands. Unfortunately postage for warranty return will be more expensive than replacing.
