Logitech mouse driver alternative for Mac OS X

Logitech mouse driver alternative for Mac OS X

I've had my Logitech MX Revolution for several years now, and I still like it a lot. However, when I first installed the software that came with it, Logitech's drivers required Application Enhancer (APE, which I don't want), and they kind of sucked anyway. They were glitchy and not particularly user-friendly or Mac-like.

"I've not found a lot of quality free replacement mouse drivers for Mac OS X. There's two non-free options that I've evaluated, and either is good for me. Note that I don't have a Logitech mouse on my Macbook, I have an Evoluent Vertical Mouse.

I bought a VX Nano yesterday and I didn't need to install any drivers. The back/forward buttons work as well as the tilt to scroll feature. But the web search button was mapped to autoscroll. To deal with the search button I installed usboverdrive which should almost definitely work for everything except the second scroll wheel and the auto activation of the hyper-scroll wheel. Unfortunately usboverdrive isn't free but if you are willing to pay $20, or don't mind closing a dialog box every time you log in, usboverdrive should work fie for you.
