    Logitech MX 5500 connected via internal USB and mx5000-tool

    I am attempting to use mx5000-tool to set my Logitech MX 5500 keyboard's lcd screen settings. However, my keyboard is connected via the computer's INTERNAL BLUETOOTH.

    What works:
    • Installing and mx5000-tool and getting it to run.
    • Keyboard is connected and working properly, all keys work with an exception of a few that don't register in xev.
    • I can find the mac address of the keyboard.

    What doesn't work:
    • Can't run any mx5000-tool commands using my mac address or anything else that I can think of.
      Code:
      nicholas@alipaz-asus:~$ hidd --show
      00:07:61:B5:A4:BF Logitech MX5500 Keyboard [046d:b30b] connected 
      00:07:61:AD:4E:7C Logitech MX Revolution Mouse [046d:b007] connected
      nicholas@alipaz-asus:~$ sudo mx5000-tool -d 00:07:61:B5:A4:BF -b

    Same problem, Ubuntu 10.10 MX5500 with generic BT dongle - any luck?

    Re: Logitech MX 5500 connected via internal USB and mx5000-tool

    Hi,

    this is a question of permissions. More information about configuration can be found here. Just try it with a "sudo" before.

    Currently I'm running Lucid on my desktop and Maverick on my notebook. On both systems I get the the following error if I try to send a command to the keyboard:

    Code:
    tom@daemonenstall:~$ sudo mx5000-tool -d /dev/hidraw0 -b
    Could not open device or improper device (Inappropriate ioctl for device)
    Any clues?

    Best, rolvo_volvo
