Hello specialists, I have a budget mouse as described (Maxxter) which works fine in Windows 7 (I’m running a dual boot W7/Netrunner) but refuses to function under Linux. What can I do to remedy this? My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L 505-10M with 8 GB memory.

does lsusb show the device ?
[/quote]I have 3 usb 2.0 ports on my laptop. I have tried the lsusb command with the dongle on all three and, according to the port, I get different bus and device numbers but the ID is always the same: ID 248a: 8566. This is probably some kind of a vendor identification but that does not help me much.
That shows that it is detected at all which is good in this case.
But if it does not work at all it might be not registring itself as USB HID device which would be than a hardware problem you can nothing do about except blaming the vendor to ship such a shitty product. (USB HID is a standard for a reason)

don’t call me stupid, but what do you call “refuses to function”?
Does it not work at all, or do you mean just specific function like scroll wheel, or more than two buttons?
[/quote]Unfortunately, it does not work at all.

As I explained earlier, it really is a budget mouse.
