That logitech-applet link is dead, and google is offering no help, anyone have a copy of the archive they can put online?

I looked for 30 minutes on google last nite, thanks for your help. ANd FYI, every link i found points to the dead frogmouth one, what search params did you use? Or are you just making smart ass remarks? And people say americans are rude.

Can somebody explain what exactly 800dpi is?

Also, where would I go to see if my mouse supports it? I have a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse. Not sure of any type of model number or anything.

Quite sure that 800dpi will NOT work with you microsoft mouse. That applet ist only for Logitech Mice.

The Link for The Applet works fine: http://www.frogmouth.net/logitech-applet-0.3.tar.gz

I don't necessarily mean THAT applet, but would it be possible to get 800dpi with this mouse using another method?

Hi :)

I've edited the original patch a bit, by adding a config option. (USB_HID_MOUSEHACK)

This patch is included in the latest release of love-sources (2.6.9-rc1-love1), and can currently be grabbed from the url below:

http://omfg.linux.dk/pub/patches/new_hid_mousehack_menuconfig-UPDATED.patch

I did this mainly for the numerous amounts of patchsets that have popped up on these forums lately. I've seen the original patch included in -nitro recently, and as far as i remember, it was also in -love a couple of months ago, but not everyone wanted it in, so it was removed. But i have a feeling that a lot of people really like this hack.

Since the original patch obviously isn't working too well for everyone, I thought I'd be nice and add a config option, so it can be disabled or enabled depending on the what the user wants.

If you're using MENUCONFIG, you can find the option by doing the following:

* Enabling "USB support"
* Enabling "USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support"
* Enabling "HID input layer support"

An option named "500Hz USB HID Mouse Polling (EXPERIMENTAL)" should now be shown below the "HID input layer support" option.

Hope you enjoy it!

If you have an MX Duo wireless keyboard/MX700 mouse you'll need this in your logitech-applet.c
Code:

    { VENDOR_LOGITECH, 0xc50b, "C-BK16A-DUAL", "MX Duo Receiver", HAS_SS | HAS_CSR },

Apparently you can't do 800cpi with an MX700?

Hello again,

I don't know if any of you has noticed this, but with newer kernels (from 2.6.8 and above, I think) the hack prints the 'HID Mouse <whatever> forced to 2 ms polling', but isn't actually working.

There is a workaround though... You have to reload the USBHID-driver, thus it's neccesary to build USBHID as a module...

The easiest way to reload the module in Gentoo, is probably just to put something like

'rmmod usbhid; modprobe usbhid'

in your /etc/conf.d/local.start, or alternatively use this initscript:

http://omfg.linux.dk/pub/misc/usbhid_fix

EDIT:
The stuff above assumes that you are auto-loading the usbhid at startup...
If you aren't, you should edit the script, or your local.start to load the module, then unload, and load it again.

Here we go again! :lol:

I fixed the bug! Hurrah! :P

I decided to start from scratch, and use the old mousehack as a refference...

I removed a lot of unneeded code from it, and made it even more customizable.

You are now able to adjust your desired polling interval in your config. (Through options 'USB_HID_CONFIGURABLE_POLLING' and 'USB_HID_CONFIGURABLE_POLLING_INTERVAL')

You can grab it from the URL below:

http://omfg.linux.dk/pub/patches/configurable-hid-mouse-polling-2.6.9-rc1.patch

And oh, as the filename implies, the patch should be applied to 2.6.9-rc1.

Enjoy! :twisted:

krejler, aye man. could you take a look at this compile error. i just tried to compile your patch in a 2.6.8.1 kernel, and it would'nt work. i set the mouse polling to "1" if that makes any difference.
---------------------

Hi!

This version compiles on 2.6.8.1, (and below, I think) and /should/ work... I haven't tried it yet, but I will in a bit. :)

hmm I'm a bit confused with your last version. Now you can have usbhid built in the kernel and it works fine ?

also , i have set if (CONFIG_USB_HID_CONFIGURABLE_POLLING_INTERVAL == 0)
+ endpoint->bInterval = 1;


from 10 to 1 , is this correct for 1ms polling ?

any help is much appreciated :D.

thx

I have no idea what 'mouserate' is, sorry, but you should be able to feel if the hack is working...

Hmmm, it seems like you're approaching this the wrong way. :D
See, I added a config option for this hack (see the posts above), so you shouldn't mess with the code to get it to work...

The default polling rate for the 'old' hack was 2 ms, which is 500Hz (1000/2=500), therefore, 1 ms would mean 1MHz, and I'm not sure it's a good idea to poll it that 'often' but I'm not stopping you. :D

As far as i know, the only mice actually officially supports to be polled at 500Hz is the Logitech MX-serie, but I can't see why other mice wouldn't work.

Also, are you using a 2.6.9 or a 2.6.8 kernel?
You mentioned 'endpoint->bInterval', which is only used in the 2.6.8 version, so if you're on a 2.6.8 kernel, fine... If not, hurry, use the 2.6.9 patch instead... The 2.6.8 patch doesn't work with 2.6.9 kernels!

Farewell! :twisted:

hey,

im using 2.6.8-r4 (gentoo-dev-sources) for amd64 , i applied the 'old' patch and the new one , but the old one does nothing and i dont have a menuconfig for the new one , bcuz its for 2.6.9 i guess ^^ ,
i have a Logitech MX310 btw.

1Mhz sounds like an awful lot to poll a mouse :D , dont really think its safe , so will try on my old mx510 :D

thx for anything u could help me with, it just does nothing :(

[edit]

fix ur 2nd link for 2.6.8.1
it says nfigurable

will http://syscrash2k.hopto.org/~krejler/configurable-hid-mouse-polling-2.6.8.1.patch work on my 2.6.8 kernel ? :o

hmm , i've just cleanly emerged , development-sources , which is for me 2.6.9-rc1 , i downloaded http://syscrash2k.hopto.org/~krejler/configurable-hid-mouse-polling-2.6.9-rc1.patch

patched it
Code:

patch -p1 <configurable-hid-mouse-polling-2.6.9-rc1.patch


did menuconfig.

but i cant find the usb polling interval config menu :(
i checked everyware , also the patch apply goes smoothly without any errors.

First of all, browse to 'Device Drivers' -> 'USB Support'.

The config-options depend on 'HID input layer support' and can be found just below that option.

The config-options are: 'Configurable USB HID Mouse Polling' and 'USB HID Mouse Polling Interval'...
