welcome to superuser! Your question is a bit short on context, to get a meaningful answer you could add info on, for example, version of Debian and your hardware. See the FAQ for this site. Good luck! – FredrikD Nov 10 '12 at 9:42

Hopefully this is the right format to add my experience, wasn't sure about the improve question feature. I recently purchased the same mouse and experienced the same problem when booting into Ubuntu. I use a 10.08 distribution of Ubuntu. I dual boot along side Windows 7. My Laptop is an ASUS G74SX-A1. The mouse is fully functional in Windows with the exception that the Logitech Gaming Software used the program the buttons on the mouse does not detect the mouse. I booted into Ubuntu to see if I would have any better luck and discovered that when I pressed any button on the mouse, the screen would have a brief garbled graphic and then go straight to the login screen, regardless if I was already at the login screen or already logged in. Based on how the drivers in Windows appear and the functionality of the mouse, sorry I don't know this for a fact, the mouse appears to have an onboard controller that interfaces with the mouse and keyboard aspect of the mouse and stores the programmed button configurations. I am assuming this is where Ubuntu is having the issue because it sees this controller before the mouse and if Ubuntu does not have a driver for the controller the signals from the controller is sending a misinterpreted signal to Ubuntu that is causing it to go the the login screen. Hope this helps.

OP has been rather concise so your 'answer' may help with the question but is too long to squeeze into a comment. I'm not convinced it is really an answer - or is your answer (the fairly standard!) "Make sure your drivers are up to date"? – pnuts Nov 30 '12 at 5:58
