Targus laser presentation remote works on Linux

targusA few weeks ago I bought a Targus laser presentation remote, model AMP13EU. I can report that it works perfectly on my Ubuntu box. I tested it under Ubuntu 12.10 and 12.04.

The user manual doesn’t mention Linux :( It says it works with Windows and Mac OS so when I bought it, I was just hoping that it would work with Linux too. Thank God it works like a charm.

Technical details
After connecting its USB receiver, “dmesg” produces the following output:
