Change hidden settings in the Logitech Control Center
Authored by: glowurm on Sep 26, '03 08:17:54PM

While I don't know what this "Receiver" is that you speak of, I do agree that it's bad interface design and also bad driver design in general as I am not able to allow the control of the mouse by other software (such as USB Overdrive) and also enable control of the keyboard by Logitech drivers. That's what Logitech Tech Support told me, anyhow.

For this reason I've sold my Logitech keyboard and purchased a Microsoft Office keyboard in its place. I really like the Logitech, too, so it was frustrating for me to have to part with it, but my programmable mouse buttons (with application-specific settings, currently not possible using the Logitech drivers AFAIK) were more important to me than the keyboard.

Anyone know a way to disable the Logitech Mouse drivers and keep the Logitech Keyboard drivers?

I have this problem....the only work around i could find was set the mouse buttons (all but the left click) to something really really weird (i.e. shift-apple-option-9) and use another program to map those key combinations (and therefor the mouse buttons) for each application you use...

Also for the people out there like me who want to have there media buttons controlling something other than iTunes (well, i actually use them to control iTunes on another machine but that's besides the point) you can change the apple-scripts that Logitech have setup. To do this go to

/Library/Application\ Support/Logitech/

Show the package contents of the file "LCCDaemon"

Go into Contents/Resources

Show the package contents of the file "seraph.plugin"

Go into Contents/Resources/Scripts

(So the full path would kind of look like....

/Library/Application\ Support/Logitech/LCCDaemon-->Contents/Resources/seraph.plugin-->Contents/Resources/Scripts
If you take --> as a sign to look at the contents of the package)

In that folder you will find a list of file with strange file extensions. these are just plain text files. You can replace the text in the files with an apple scrip. The Logitech drivers will use osacript to compile and run the scripts on the fly.

You can have newline characters and it will still work. The changes take effect immediately. I found (tho i did no testing and it could be a placebo effect) that if you replace the text files with compiles scripts (with the same file names) they seem to run a little faster.
