Hi, I have a logitech G700 wireless mouse which can be used with cable too. It works fine with the cable plugged in, but not wireless. One solution is ofc to use the cable... but I like it better wireless :) Any ideas? I'm not so good at linux. Did some searching. dmesg gives the following output:

Code: Select all

[  381.617438] usb 5-2: USB disconnect, device number 2

No change if I unplug/plug in the receiver. I can't see it being mounted as a device in /dev either. Before I switched to centos I was running ubuntu 14.04, and there the wireless part worked ok.

Is the xorg-x11-drv-evdev package installed?

Is that dmesg fragment from when you plugged it in direct or from the wireless receiver?

It was when I plugged in it directly. I get nothing when I plug in/pull out the receiver.

Then that's where the problem lies. Try a different socket. You should see something like

[1723782.507350] logitech-djreceiver 0003:046D:C52B.0031: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Device [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:14.0-2.4.1.2/input2

Sry for late response, been away. Trevor, it was as simple as you suggested, unplug and then plug in in a different slot :oops: Now it works
