LogiTech's MX510
Authored by: pete on Dec 30, '04 06:52:54PM

I never liked Apple's one button mouse. I always needed one hand on the mouse and one on the keyboard. I bought Macally's iOptiNet mouse which was cool, but was given a LogiTech MX510. I looked at it and laughed - 8 buttons? You gotta be kidding! But it is kinda cool. Fits better in my hand than Macally's.

Yes - all button are programmed, and I use them all the time!

I am completely lost at friends place with their one button mouse!

Wish it was possible to fully program all the buttons on the Logitech MX900... I really miss having an on-mouse Back, Shift and "Close Application" buttons. I have buttons 6, 7, and 8 mapped into Expose functions but it's not the same.

It's REALLY annoying that Apple doesn't provide for full mouse-button programability... I mean, it's obviously seeing the buttons because I can map them to Expose functions but can't seem to map them to *anything* else.

I love the MX700/MX900's for their weight and feel though and I just about refuse to use any other mouse since I first tried the MX700.

Does LogiTech not include their software to program the mouse? Mine is odd - it is a prefpane that calls up their app. Why bother with both when one will do?

Seems odd you can't program all the buttons!

I have buttons on my Logitech MX510 programmed for Hide App, Close Window, Cmd-Click (for opening web links in a tab). I used the Logitech "control center" app (available from their website).

For Hide App, I used to program the keyboard shortcut Cmd-H; but at least one app I use has a different function for that. So I used Butler (the great!) to set up opt-X as Hide, then the logitech "control center" to make a button do opt-X. Slick for all apps!

The logitech driver works with MX5x0 and MX700 but not with the bluetooth MX900 - this mouse doesn't really work at all, the responsiveness is very crappy. The MX700 compared to that is GREAT - I really love that mouse and I can program all 8 buttons without bigger problems - works like a charm. The only thing I'm missing are application specific settings.
