the "official sources" are dead since ever, but i found the ubuntu/debian 
repos to be a good source then:
just download and compile the source

the ting is a bit tricky, "-e" enabled the "cruisecontrol" button, "-d" 
disables it, but any further query will say it's enabled and silently disable 
long story short: this is a snip out of my ~/.xprofile

logitech_applet -e
logitech_applet -d
logitech_applet -es 800

(t's first enabled, then disabled to get a defined state, -es 800 reanables it 
and sets the resolution to 800dpi - don't call it afterwards, not even for 
checking the cc state - use xev to see whether it worked)
