Do you have a problem with it?  Or are you asking in advance of trying

If it needs a special driver available only under Windows, good luck;
you need to hope somebody's asked Kensington or reverse engineered it.
But most hardware uses the standard protocols (one reason for using
Logitech).  I'd say try it and see what happens.

If you have tried it and it doesn't seem to be recognized, grep
/var/log/dmesg for "mouse".
