Review of Linux Compatibility

The Logitech G500 is a wired, laser gaming mouse. The mouse has the USB ID 046d:c068:

Bus 003 Device 014: ID 046d:c068 Logitech, Inc. G500 Laser Mouse

and is automatically recognized and initialized under Linux:

input: Logitech G500 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.0/input/input38
generic-usb 0003:046D:C068.0023: input,hidraw2: USB HID v1.11 Mouse [Logitech G500] on usb-0000:00:1a.1-2/input0

There can be problems during the recognition of the mouse, if the mouse is used together with a USB keyboard on the same USB hub. This can leads to a lagging mouse cursor.
In such situation the mouse is recognized by the kernel as an additional keyboard:

input: Logitech G500 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.0/input/input38
generic-usb 0003:046D:C068.0023: input,hidraw2: USB HID v1.11 Mouse [Logitech G500] on usb-0000:00:1a.1-2/input0
input: Logitech G500 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.1/input/input39
generic-usb 0003:046D:C068.0024: input,hiddev0,hidraw3: USB HID v1.11 Keyboard [Logitech G500] on usb-0000:00:1a.1-2/input1

To solve this issue, keyboard and mouse should simply be connected to different USB ports.
