Review of Linux Compatibility

The Gigabyte M7700B is a laser mouse, which communicates with the PC via a Bluetooth dongle.

The mouse is fully supported under Linux (e.g., since Ubuntu 13.04): left, right, middle button, wheel and speed switch are supported. Even the additional buttons on the left side of the mouse can be used in order to browse forwards or backwards in the web browser (under Firefox and Chrome).

The mouse is supported by the Linux kernel:

    Hi All,

    Had one of these Bluetooth mice for a month now , no issues whatsoever , I am running a Tri Boot system XP Pro / Win7 Pro (64 bit ) / Ubuntu 13.1 , on HP 8740w and the mouse works brilliant on all 3 running systems , never have to hit the reconnect button ,just turn off swap OS turn on and it reconnects.

    The issues come from Win 7 , you need to change the local service user account password for the Bluetooth service , look on google many people have
    a walk through , basically go to SERVICES find the local Bluetooth Support Service and remove the password .This allows the mouse to work before
    Windows fully boots , you can use it now to login your password for Windows.

    The other bit is this , when loading the mouse search for it but DO NOT hit the next button when it is discovered , right click and choose properties ,
    then select services and tick the box for HID mouse and keyboard , it will now connect without having to hit NEXT , BUT this time it will connect as a
    STANDARD mouse under properties ( Bluetooth devices , right click your mouse ,properties , Bluetooth ) if you connect normally it will connect as an
    AUTHENTICATED mouse causing you to authenticate everytime it connects , this is why you have to turn off/on or hit your reconnect button ,this is Win 7 going crazy on Bluetooth security and NOT the mouse .

    Good Luck , this took me a few hours of geeking and many hairs pulled out , have 6 BT mice here ranging from Microsoft BT 5000 / Trust MI 5300m to no name Chinese mice and the only mouse that could do all 3 with no issues was the Gigabyte M7700 B .

    So if you have these issues , remove the mouse from the list of Bluetooth devices and reboot , then try reconnecting my way , and your trouble should be gone , if you need BT at login then you have to do the BT Support service password.
