Logitech G600 on Linux
Utility program for binding actions to keys on the Logitech G600 gaming mouse. Supports 16 keys and the G-shift button for a total of 32 fast shortcuts.
Before running this program open the Logitech Gaming Software on a Windows or Mac OS machine. Assign the three basic mouse buttons to their standard functions. The G-shift button should be assigned to the G-shift function. All the remaining buttons (scroll left, scroll right, G7, ... G20) should be set to emulate (unique) keyboard keys (but not modifier keys).

input group with:
sudo chown .input g600 sudo chmod g+s g600
