My Logitech mx610 mouse has some LEDs on the top but I haven’t seen any Linux distro support them. Luckily, I found this source a while back that enables interaction with said LEDs. I just hooked the mouse up to a different PC and went searching to see if there’s an update… no dice. In fact, I couldn’t even find the version I currently had online anywhere. So I’m doing what any good open source contributor would do: host the file.

Here it is! mx610hack-0.3.tar

Disclaimer: I had this working in an old version of Ubuntu but haven’t even tested it with anything more recent yet. It did compile so that’s a start!

I should also mention that I did not write this code. I’m just sharing it because it seems to be hard to find these days. The original source seems to be here: http://blogs.kde.org/node/2029
