    Logitech does not let you assign right click. Left click only. How stupid.

If you go into the logitech mouse setup program "Setpoint" there should be a section that tells the mouse what each button will do. It's probably got "Nothing" or something similar selected. See if you can find one that says "Right Click" or something along those lines, and select that, and press OK/Apply to save settings, and see if it changes anything.

Copy and paste for dummies

You're following instructions for an IBM-style machine and mouse. You need to be reading instructions for Apple. Often their version of a 'right-click' is to double-click, but it depends on the program. Read your manual about using your mouse, and always look for Apple-specific instructions for any program or application you are using.

If you are only facing the problem when doing a copy paste online then it could be an issue with the Internet browser and not the mouse.

I have a g5 logitech mouse

I had the same mouse, and the exact same problem happened to me, in the middle of Half Life 2, only 5 months after buying it.

Unfortunately I had lost my receipt. If you still have the reciept or proof of purchase, Logitech does have a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. You may want to send it to Logitech and get a replacement.

You can try to open the mouse up and see if you can find the component that doesn't allow the right click to work anymore, but it may be difficult to open, and if you are within the 1 year warranty, opening it up will void that warranty. I remember taking a look at it and from my memory there is no screws holding the mouse together and would be a hassle trying to crack it open and try to fix the button. I ended up just going to the store and purchasing a new mouse.

Left button of G5 laser mouse wont work

If you are talking about the left mouse button not on the sides, your mouse may have some buildup in the mouse on the sensor that says it was being touched. if you remove the screws and blow it out with a can of air, it may resolve the issue if not i would check the warranty and see about getting it replaced if there is no warranty. If you are talking about the mouse buttons on the left side of the mouse, you need to install the software from the following site.,en
I would follow the instructions and update the firmware and then install the setpoint software as well. If it still doesn't the mouse will need to be replaced.
