Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-runtime

I use a Logitech Cordless Optical TrackMan with Kubuntu 11.04 (64 Bit;
KDE 4.6.2). When it is connected, I have an additional tab (named with
the name of my mouse) in kcontrol's mouse options, telling:

Sie haben eine Logitech-Maus angeschlossen, und libusb wurde bei der
Kompilierung dieser Module erkannt. Es ist aber kein Zugriff auf diese
Maus möglich. Die Ursache dafür ist wahrscheinlich ein Rechte-Problem.
Bitte ziehen Sie die Dokumentation zu Rate, um das Problem zu lösen.

To translate this in English, it says that I connected a logitech mouse
and libusb was detected when compiling the modules. However, I don't
have access to the mouse, which might be an access rights problem.

At http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Logitech#KDE-Konfiguration I found a hint, telling that one has to do:
sudo chgrp plugdev /etc/hotplug/logitechmouse*
sudo /etc/init.d/hotplug force-reload
However, there is no such directory, as Kubuntu 11.04 or the used KDE version is not using hotplug anymore, but something else.
