View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless keyboard and mouse cut out randomly?

January 17th, 2012, 11:14 AM
Morning all,

I am using a Logitech K520 keyboard and mouse pair.
I used to run it on ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 (can't remember the names). And it worked straight out of the box no problem.

I've now done a completely clean install, (new hard drive), of ubuntu and loaded 11.10.

Keyboard and mouse work as they should, and they work fine with the BIOS too, before I loaded an OS.

However, they do now randomly cut out and stop working. Either the mouse or the keyboard. The only way I can get them back, is to reboot, and then they work just fine.

[I've obviously tried fresh batteries and it makes no difference.]

Has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this? :confused:
Aside from waiting for 12.04 and hoping, or switching distro.

Thank you

So has anyone else seen this? Is there any related issue that people know about?

Shall I register it as a bug??

Is there anyone out there?

I know it's old. But I have similar problem. The keyboard randomly stops working for a while (like 3 s) while mouse is fine. Re-plugging the dongle seem to help.
