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).

Usage

  1. Clone this repository.
  2. Open g600.c and fill in the commands for the keys.
  3. Compile with gcc g600.c -o g600.
  4. Run with sudo ./g600.

For command ideas you can look at programs like xdotool, xdo, pulseaudio-ctl, xclip, i3-msg. You can also run your own scripts.

The program needs privileges to communicate with G600 so typically it'll be started with sudo. Alternatively (works on Ubuntu 18.04) you can force the program to run as the input group with:

sudo chown .input g600
sudo chmod g+s g600
You can’t perform that action at this time.
