I have a Logitec ERGO K860 Bluetooth keyboard and an ERGO M575 Bluetooth trackball. I installed LMDE 6 a couple of weeks ago. When I made the changeover, the keyboard and trackball stopped working. Upon research, I learned that it is a common issue when changing over to Linux. I did some more research and found a solution on GitHub - LogiOps by PixiOne. I tried to install it, but in the end, it was like I was stuck in mud and going nowhere. Is there anybody here who has run into this problem and has a solution or could literally walk me through the GitHub solution step-by-step?

I have spent the last couple of weeks figuring out a printer problem. Now time for the next item on the list to be fixed.
Mark - if I get through setting this system up without breaking my glass desk, it will be a miracle!

That's fine IF the keyboard and trackball support both Bluetooth AND the unifying receiver. If so, then the OP can install Solaar - an open-source app for controlling multi-pairing via the Unifying receiver - and both devices can be set-up to pair with the one USB dongle.

I believe it also works with the newer "Bolt" dongles, too.

I'd take this route any time. Bluetooth's a PITA under Linux, even now. Personally, I want as little to do with it as possible.


Mike. ;)
