    My old Logitech MouseMan decided it was finally going to start dying (it was sticking every so often and just being annoying), so I picked up an MX510. Very cool mouse, almost as comfortable as my MouseMan was.

    Anyone else using this mouse on Linux? I can't seem to get the side buttons to work. Scroll-wheel and scrolling buttons work fine, just the side buttons not working (and the little app-switcher button, but I understand that might take some special Windows software to recognize or something?).

    I got all the buttons working now, with the side buttons doing page up/page down and shift+scrollwheel doing home/end. Now I don't even need to move when surfing OT. This mouse is god :bowdown:

    I picked up one of those at Game Stop last night.

    ...then I put it back down. :) (the only one they had was some :greddy: marbled/pearlescent red color)

    Looked pretty cool though. I negelcted to look. Is it cordless?

    I have the MX500 and Love it... I am going to get the MX510 for my Gaming system this weekend... Logitech is already working a releasing an upgraded version of the 510 with a higher quality laser in it foe even more percision.
