Supposing you have a synaptic touchpad, as most do, install the synaptics driver if you have not already, usually called xf86-input-synaptics. Installing the KDE touchpad config modules (usually kcm-touchpad or kde-touchpad) should provide you with the configuration GUI. I am actually quite surprised this was not included by default by your distribution, ...

I found this: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xf86-input-evdev-debounce/ after googling for "linux xinput mouse debounce" I'm not gonna test it. It's been a long time since you asked, but maybe someone has the same problem with a favorite mouse, so here it is. Also, I'm not an Arch user; but they really rock!


I also faced similar issue. I think linux does not have appropriate drivers for this mouse. The issue is related to HID that the mouse is passing is being treated as a keyboard. There have been similar issues with other mice. See : http://askubuntu.com/questions/232564/sharkoon-drakonia-gaming-mouse-doesnt-work-at-all


This answer is specific to Logitech devices with Unifying receiver, but you're mentioning one explicitely in your question. Install solaar, a tool which can be used to pair devices with the unifying receiver, but also provides basic device configuration (and status information like battery level). Select the mouse, disable "Smooth Scrolling".
