Logitech G502 Hero, linux support ?
Guppy commented on 7 August 2019 at 12:10 pm UTC

I've finally had enough of gazillion tiny button on the side of my old razor and I've been looking for some thing with 3-5 side buttons of a resonable size.

I've found the G502 Hero but what worries me is that one button aparently is wired to lower dpi? can this be changed with out windows software - I've very much like for it to just send a generic "mouse button 5" instead.


Also accepting other suggestion for mice with 3-5 resonably sized buttons that don't alter mousebehaviour / or have linux support.

It seems like you should be able to configure the G502 Hero using piper/libratbag. It is listed under supported devices. https://github.com/libratbag/piper

Solaar had a big update 12 days ago, maybe you could try it. As far as I now, you should download & install the latest version from Github, Ubuntu / Mint provides an outdated version.

Do you use this your self?

when using the PPA piper complains about incompatible version ( required:1, found: -1 ) piperctrl show that the 502 is found tho

nvm: seems the PPA is broken and I'll need to wait for "someone" to fix it

I use the flatpack. You may need a newer version of libratbag then what is on mint. You can compile it from source https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag. I have the g502 proteus core and it works great with it.

Think I'll a few more days for the PPA - I've broken too many a system by mixing packages with self built ^^

Could still try the flatpack. If it needs a newer version just uninstall it.

I think the Flatpak is also broken.

Seems the PPA maintainer is missing in action (libratbagd has failed to build 4 weeks ago), guess I'll be removing the PPA and installing from source

Can't even manage to compile piper on ubuntu - I'm missing pygobject3 development packages, and I can't for the life of me figure out what the package name is
