lomoco – next generation

I’ve finished my diploma thesis (more about this later) and started to work on lomoco again. lomoco can configure vendor-specific options on Logitech USB mice (or dual-personality mice plugged into the USB port).
Since there are some places where you can find code to control Logitech mice, I decided to write a shared library. We will provide a command line client to configure your mouse. The shared library makes it possible to use it for example in KDE’s kcontrol which has his own code for Logitech mice at the moment.

Some days ago Peter Feuerer (piie) was able to sniff the commands which have to be send to the G5 to change the resolution. With some already existing hiddev code, he was able to set the different resolution modes. The G5 has only 4 resolutions: 400, 800, 1600, 2000. The rest of the resolution you can select with the windows server is just interpolated! You can find the hack here. There is existing code for the MX610 and MX Revolution too.

You can find the lomoco homepage here.
