Hi JohnWiz,

 

The latest version of Logitech Control Center version 3.6 is already available in the Logitech Website.

Re: Logitech Control Center update for Mac OSX 10.8

One full month to say something completely out of place that will not answer the question.

 

Classic Logitech.

That's the problem with you guys, overall great products but awful customer service and support (specially Mac OS support).

 

Luckily Steermouse guys gave me an answer the same day.

 

First FAQ, for those interested

Re: Logitech Control Center update for Mac OSX 10.8

The answer from Logitech staff is not correct.

 

The version of LCC on the website is still not compatible with OSX 10.8. It won't pair with an M525...and there is no dedicated driver for the M525 for any version of OSX.

 

The steermouse answer might work...but it will set you back $20.

Hello blue_Shift, 

 

I see that you have a Wireless Mouse M525 and that you are using it on a Mac OS 10.8.x. As I understand, you tried to download the Logitech Control Center software from the M525 downloads page but it wasn't there. I'll be happy to assist you with this issue.

 

The M525 mouse is a mouse that doesn't come with extra buttons to program like some of the other Logitech mice. There isn't a dedicated driver for the M525 for Mac, because it is not needed. This mouse can work on a Mac computer using the OS native drivers and you can program your mouse buttons using the mouse options available on your Mac System Preferences.

 

You also wrote that the LCC version that is available on the website didn't pair the M525 with its receiver. This is because the LCC gives you options to program your mouse buttons and to change its settings. The software that would allow you to pair the M525 with its receiver is the Unifying software, you can download it from this link.

 

 

I really hope that you find this information useful blue_Shift. If you have further questions please let me know, I'll be happy to help you.

@blue_Shift:

The unifying s/w found pointed to by your link fails on a Mac OS X 10.7 MBP with this error when trying to install the pkg:

 

LCCVersionCheck_Failure_Title

 

Any solutions?

This information is not correct. Using the "native drivers", the tilt wheels and middle click on the m525 do not function on a Mac. It should be understood to be unacceptable. So this mouse does not "work on a Mac computer", indeed on a Mac it becomes dysfunctional product. Mac users would get better value buying a different mouse.

I had the same problem.  If you want to hack a solution, you can use pkgutil from Xcode in Terminal.app to expand the installation file, edit the problem LCC function in the Distribution file, and flatten it back into a mpkg file.  First install Xcode from the App Store (it's free) if you don't already have it installed.  Mount the logtiech installation utility:  unifying1.10.421.dmg in my case.  Run Applications > Utilities > Terminal.  Type this into Terminal:

 

pkgutil --expand /Volumes/Logitech®\ Unifying\ Software/Logitech\ Unifying\ Software.mpkg ~/Desktop/Logitech.unpacked/

 

Look for the Logitech.unpacked folder on your desktop.  Open the Distribution file in TextEdit.  Remove the 3 "if" statements from the LCCVersionCheck so it reads just this:

 

function LCCVersionCheck() {
	return true;
}

 Leave the other functions alone.  Save the file.

 

Repack the installer from the Terminal.app:

 

pkgutil --flatten ~/Desktop/Logitech.unpacked ~/Desktop/Logitech.mpkg

 Find the Logitech.mpkg file on your Desktop, and double-click it to start the installer again.  Once installed, the Logitech Unifying Software under Applications > Utilities should work fine under Mac OS 10.8.

Hello blue_Shift,

 

Based on the information that you posted there's a chance that the hardware of your M525 is no longer working properly. Please try to make sure that you have fresh batteries installed on your mouse and try to connect it to the receiver again. If after that the issue persists, please place a call to our support team. They will help you check if your M525 is under warranty.

 

I hope this helps blue_Shift, and that everything works out well.
