Cordless Optical Trackman not recognized
Posted on 2010-09-21
I have a Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman trackball, but the options to change the button configuration is not available with SetPoint. I have contacted Richard Owens who wrote Uberoptions with this problem and he has identified my trouble as the Trackman is not being recognized as such. The system sees it as an HID-compliant wireless trackball, but not the specific one. My TrackMan uses the USB input on a machine running Vista-64. I have the latest Logitech driver for the device. In fact, the TM operates OK in that all of the buttons work generically. I have R and L click, forward & back, scrolling manually or with the speed buttons, but I know that it can do more. I have ZoneAlarm on my computer, but it is no better with it turned off. Setpoint installs without a hitch and "advertises" all of the versatility available, but the promise is never fulfilled. Any help appreciated.
