Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 156384
Logitech cordless mouse is not handled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
'kcmshell mouse' does not show me the special tab I should get about the battery
status and such for my logitech cordless PS2 mouse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q kdebase
Steps to Reproduce:
the control center part opens fine, but I only get the default 4 tabs.
I should also see a tab called Receiver that shows battery strength and channel
$ dmesg | grep tech
logips2pp: Detected unknown logitech mouse model 62
input: ImExPS/2 Logitech Explorer Mouse on isa0060/serio1
For the record, here is what I received from the kde mailing list when asking
about my problem:
In kde control centre the mouse should have a new tab called Receiver that
shows battery strength and channel of mouse. It works fine here under FC3.
It is appropriate to write to a kde list about test kde releases because kde
needs the bug feedback but it is pointless to write to a kde list when you
are running a fedora test as any problems are likely to be OS related not
desktop-environment related. The new mouse feature depend on a working
hal/dbus/usb setup si it can read that info so write to fedora about it.
The kc_input in KDE only supports USB mouse, it seems that your mouse is not
connected to USB port. Is the mouse connected to USB port?
Ow... no sorry, it's a PS/2 mouse.
I missed the fact that this feature was for USB mice only, my bad.
Apologies for the bother.
