    Can anyone tell me if the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse and its 231 Icc control Centre software work with Leopard. I just bought one and I was thinking of installing it but I thought I would ask first if anyone has tried it yet and if it works OK.

    I haven't tried it (and don't plan to) but I have the same mouse and highly recommend using Steermouse to map your buttons. Every button is configurable with Steermouse (as opposed to LCC, where the mousewheel/middle-click button is not) on a global or per-app basis, and it works really well.

    Same here. I gave up on LCC a while back and started using Steer Mouse instead (which has been updated for Leopard).

    I'm using the MX500, all seems fine. Although when i drag items to the trash i've been seeing the mouse move to different coordinates. But that might be a system problem.

    i have an mx revolution and do use the logitech control center. it didn't work for me immediately after upgrading, but it did after i re-installed the software. and it works really well. i have the thumb button set for spaces, the two side buttons for exposé and dashboard, and the wheel tilts for page forward/backward in safari. everything works fine.

    I agree...
    I own a vx revolution mouse and use steermouse as well...
    the logitech drivers for mac just are terrible...
    it caused random kernel panics on my macbook

    I've had crashes before LCC 2.3.1 but with 2.3.1 I haven't had a single problem yet and all the buttons are completely assignable (VX at least).
    No problems on Leopard either. I've had to reinstall LCC after Archive&Install method, though.

    My MX Revolution will not work after waking the computer up from sleep. I'm forced to hold in the power button to turn off my iMac and then restart to regain function. I'm not sure why this is happening. It must be a USB incompatibility. ???

    I had a similar issue with my vx under tiger.
    steermouse solved it for me back then.
    it sure is a great driver software for usb mice.

    and btw. it has been updated to be leopard compatible:)

    Ditto. Newest logitech works great. Installed after Archive/Install. Doesn't justify paying for steermouse. Actually, both Expose and Spaces now support mouse button configurations within those apps, so you might not need LCC or SteerMouse if you only want to tie those buttons to Spaces/Expose.

    same exact problem

    I experienced the same problem w my MX Revolution. Tried reinstalling Logitech software. Tried using Steermouse. Problem is still there. After waking from sleep, the cursor skips all over the page and is uncontrollable. Machine must be restarted. I've had to resort to using the Apple mouse that shipped with my PowerMac G5.

    I use a MX Revolution and the latest LCC, and I have had no problems.

    VX revolution works fine with my powerbook and leopard.

    Unlike everyone else here, I've never had problems with LCC. Steermouse needs to be registered which is annoying.

    I'm jealous...I guess you are one of the lucky ones...
    the issue with LCC seems like it happens randomly.

    I for myself am very glad that someone develops usb mice drivers like steermouse...it was a life saver for me.
