View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.04 with Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard/Mouse

May 19th, 2008, 03:23 PM
Hi guys,

Recently installed 8.04 and am having fits getting my Logitech MX 5000 keyboard and MX 1000 Laser mouse working.

first I tried following the steps here:

had no success - got all the way through, but the system wouldn't even recognize the keyboard/mouse

so I then read about Ubuntu 8.04 having a graphical interface - sweet (or so I thought)

If I put the devices in detect mode, they are detected fine, and the system will even say they are connected, but they are dead, they don't work for input at all.

mouse won't move/click, keyboard won't even let me type the passkey.

If someone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

At this point, I'd like to just start out from scratch, but don't know exactly how to do that.
