Where does Logitech Control Center install to?

    I decided to install LCC for my new V470, but I can't for the life of me seem to be able to actually find it. When installing it asked me where I would like to install it to and the only option was Macintosh HD, I expected to find it in the Applications folder, but there's no sign of it whatsoever.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    If I were you, I'd run the uninstaller right now - the logitech drivers are buggier 'n heck.

    However, it should have installed a prefpane (at least, earlier versions did - it's been a while since I was brave enough to try installing any logitech driver - I just rely on OS X's built-in support these days) - try opening system prefs and see if it's there.

    I had read a few bits and pieces about LCC being buggy but figured I'd give it a go anyway, however, in light of your reply I've just uninstalled it as I can't afford any instability.

    I ran the uninstaller but should I be looking to delete any other files at all? I'm pretty new to Macs and installing/uninstalling is the one thing that I'm really having trouble coming to terms with :eek:

    Oh and cheers!

    The uninstaller should have gotten all but the prefs file (which isn't doing any harm and is only a couple of k - you should find it in your ~/library/preferences directory with a name something like com.logitech.xxx.plist if you want to get rid of it)

    I love logitech's mice, but their drivers. Ugh!! lol

    If you want to enable extra features, take a look at USB overdrive or SteerMouse - they're both shareware, but well-regarded. Personally I just stick with the built-in support :)

    oh, and you're welcome! :D

    If you ran the uninstaller, most of the files should be gone. Logitech's OS X mouse drivers are really crappy in my opinion. My wireless Logitech mouse was worse when using the Logitech drivers than when I just let OS X manage it.

    Well there's no sign of the prefs file [at least not in the Preferences directory], I guess the uninstaller took care of that to, the stupid thing is that I'm not even that bothered about enabling extra features; I'm just a bit of a completist!

    This is why MacRumors.com is easily the best Mac forum around, thank you both :)

    I have it installed and I experience no problems with it what so ever.

    It installs as a preference pane in system preferences.

    It messes up your system.

    Use USB Overdrive instead. It's 100X better.

    Ape???

    Does anyone know if APE is still being installed with LCC 2.4.0? My dad just bought a Logitech VX Nano and would like to program the buttons. He would prefer to stick with original drivers, but if APE is still being included then I will steer him in toward the other drivers previously mentioned.

    No.

    I've had no issues with the latest LCC. It's not necessarily better than the alternatives but it's no so bad anymore.

    I updated iMac 24" (Core2Duo) to 10.5.2, then installed LCC 2.4, restarted iMac and... Mac stopped booting at the blue screen. Waited 10 minutes - no progress. Had to log in in Safe mode and remove all LCC kext files from the System folder, delete LCC Prefpane, then iMac could boot in normal mode. So I can say that LCC v.2.4 is NOT 10.5.2 compatible!

    ...on your iMac maybe. It is 10.5.2 compatible though.

    I currently use a mx laser bluetooth mouse and this is the last Logitech product that I will buy due to their crappy software. A simple program such as steermouse enables me to use ALL my buttons. But Logitech cannot make it happen. I was hoping that they cleaned their act. My hope has ended. Logitech as well as Motorola is on my black list. Two companies with great hardware but ridiculous software.

    I use LCC all the time and it works great. It installs to your System Preferences. Open that as you will see in in the bottom line under OTHER.

    Had difficulties with LCC with Tiger but in Leopard it's fine. It's in the System Preferences folder, BTW

    Logitech Control Center is in System Preferences.

    Also, you can use Spotlight to find it. Just type, "Logitech.." and it should pop up.
