How to make G300 work correctly
This Wiki page will show you how to get your G300 mouse working as desired.
G300 is recognized as both mouse and keyboard by system, you could check by execute:
xinput list | grep G300
We have to disable the G300 keyboard to make it work correctly.
Here's the code:
#!/bin/sh DEVICE_ID=$(xinput list | grep "Logitech Gaming Mouse G300" | grep keyboard | sed 's/.*id=\([0-9]*\).*/\1/') if xinput -list-props $DEVICE_ID | grep "Device Enabled" | grep "1$" > /dev/null then xinput set-int-prop $DEVICE_ID "Device Enabled" 8 0 fi
Simply execute the code above to see if it's working.
And you could put it into your xinitrc.d to make it load automatically.
Another version but short:
#!/bin/sh G300ID=$( xinput --list | grep G300.*Keyboard | cut --field 2 | tr --delete "id=" ) let $( xinput --list-props $G300ID | grep "Device Enabled" | cut --field 3 ) && xinput --disable $G300ID
The above script works as intended but it also disables the buttons, since we disabled the keyboard function of the g300.
To make this mouse working as a mouse and being able to use the buttons, we can use ratslap from aur for customizations (colors and buttons).
