I am having inconsistent clicks with my logitech m510 mouse with my new linux computer. Everything about the mouse works properly (tracking, scrolling) except the clicking action, which works intermittently.
If I depress the mouse button for longer, it seems to be more reliable.
kernel version 6.1.0-1028-oem
ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS
framework laptop 13
What I have tried:
I have dissasembled the mouse and cleaned it
I have swapped the mouse to my old windows laptop and it works fine, pointing to Ubuntu
I have tried disabling autosuspend in the kernel
I have tried inspecting the mouse with Solaar, most options are greyed out for my mouse
I have tried moving the mouse receiver to a different expansion slot
Failing that, it seems like you could get a stream of events from your mouse using this package libinput-debug-events(1) — libinput-tools — Debian testing — Debian Manpages (should be available on Ubuntu). If the click event does not register at all I would suggest that perhaps the mouse itself is at fault. Perhaps the physical switch in the mouse is damaged or in the process of failure.
But actually I think piper and ratbag will give you better troubleshooting tools anyway…
Really appreciate your help. This is the third forum I’ve tried to get help from
I am having trouble getting ratbag to cooperate with my mouse, it might just be unsupported, but this is a pretty run of the mill mouse, I had to manually add a device file in /usr/share/devices according to this tutorial.
Yet I am still not getting the mouse to show up in piper. Here’s some output from ratbagd that might be enlightening.
