I'm not sure if this is just a Mac problem as I haven't used the mouse on a PC. I picked the LX6 up over the weekend to use with my computer at work. It works fine, for the most part, except that the cursor just decides to relocate itself randomly. I can be in the middle of clicking something, and suddenly the cursor will have shot to the other side of the screen. It's been doing it all day. I've used it on a mousepad, on the desk itself and on a blank sheet of white paper. It continues to behave the same way with all of them.
I've got the Logitech Control Center installed, but I didn't see anything in there that would help address this issue - no settings on sensitivity or anything like that.
Any advice? It's a nifty little mouse, and inexpensive, so I'd love to be able to keep using it without a problem.

I have the same type of problem, but it is with my pointer rather than cursor (unless we mean the same thing). I will be pointing somewhere and in the middle of moving the LX6 mouse, the pointer will jump from one side of the screen to another. This is happening very frequently, on the order of a few times per minute. If I can't find a resolution to this problem, I will most likely end up having to throw this mouse away because it is too old to exchange and the exact same problem occurs on my PC as well.

I have an LX7 with the same problem. It worked well with OSX 10.5 until I upgraded to 10.6, Snow Leopard last week. I deleted the old Logitech Control Center (LCC) and installed LCC 3.2 to no avail. I tried a USB mouse and it worked with no problems.

I opened a case to see if a tech can address this issue, but this seems to be a common problem with many Logitech mice, and there are many complaints all over the web on all kinds of forums. They really should be all over this, but I'm thinking this is not a good sign. If Logitech can't resolve such a basic issue in a timely manner, I would recommend never buying anything branded Logitech in the future.
In case support is performing standard due diligence and reading these forums, PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM ASAP !!!

I agree, Logitech should be addressing this problem as their mice are quite popular with Mac folks.
As an experiment, I tried a Logitech V470 Bluetooth mouse I had lying around. It works perfectly and, therefore, the problem seems to be with the LX series or, perhaps, all Logiatech wireless mice. They should examine their wireless driver(s).

I've got the same problem with MX 1000. The fact that this problem hasn't been resloved in 3 months even though it affects so many users really makes me wonder whether I should buy a Logitech mouse for my Mac next time. The Magic Mouse seems like a far better choice.

i agree yyylny. i'm currently in the market for trackballs, probably several, and i don't think i'm going to get logitech's because the software has been such a nuisance for so long. my wallet is probably going to vote for kensington's.

By the way, it seems like installing version 3.1 of the Logitech driver for Mac solves the problem, so if you don't mind downgrading you can download from here: lcc310.zip . Just make sure to uninstall the previous version first (there's an uninstaller in Applicartions/Utilities).

yes, i'm also running 3.1. yet, it only solves (or really.. doesn't create) _this_ problem, but it has others. my biggest problem with 3.1 is how it is completely unknown whether it can hang my usb subsystem when i disconnect the mx1000 receiver from my apple aluminium keyboard usb hub. sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, what it does, only reboot solves it. this kind of unstability is also pretty much unacceptable.
