    Logitech Dinovo bluetooth keyboard fails after upgrade to 11.10 or 12.04

    I have a Logitech Dinovo bluetooth keyboard/trackpad that was working perfectly in Natty (11.04). After upgrading to Oneiric (11.10) it no longer worked at all and kept popping up a bluetooth connect dialog that consistently failed.

    How to fix for 11.10:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/62-bluez-hid2hci.rules
    How to fix for 12.04 (thank you QuadeHale)
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/97-bluetooth-hid2hci.rules
    Look for the line under "# Logitech devices" that starts with:
    KERNEL=="hiddev*"
    and change it to:
    KERNEL=="hidraw*"

    Leave the rest of the line intact.

    Save the file and restart the machine. (You probably really only need to log off and back on).

    If you are doing an upgrade, ( I just did 11.10 to 12.04), at the very end, when it's ready to restart, just do the edit as above before restarting. That way your keyboard/trackpad/mouse will continue to work after the restart. If you restart first, you will lose the bluetooth keyboard/mouse and you will have to plug in a wired keyboard/mouse to make the changes.

    I have entered a bug on this at:

    Thanks - worked a treat.
    I had to use the onscreen keyboard for typing (lent my normal wired keyboard out as thought I wouldn't need it again).

    My logitech keyboard and mouse is a Logitech MX5500 Keyboard Mouse combo.
    (logs reported device id's so match was OK with config line in rules file)

    Thanks again. I have a MX550 keyboard and a MX Revolution mouse. It worked for me, but volume keys on the keyboard stil doesn't work, while in 11.04 was fine.

    Thanks! I was getting the grant access to service prompt too for my Logitech MX5500 Performance Mouse. Updated the config file, disconnected the USB receiver for a second then plugged it back in and it's working!

    Take a look in system settings -> keyboard ->Custom Shortcuts and see if the volume up down settings are correct. You can change them by just clicking on the volume up shortcut for example and then hitting the volume up key on your keyboard.

    Thank you so much. Works on my bluetooth MX revolution keyboard and mouse. Boy, was that a nuisance.
