    Logitech g703 battery level reporting

    Hello - I'm hoping someone can help me
    I have a Logitech g703 mouse connected through a Lightspeed received and would like a command to report the battery level. I realise that this hasn't been possible until Kernel version 5+, but I'm now on 19.10 with the latest kernel and was expecting `upower -d` to report the battery level, but it doesn't

    I've also been looking at ratbagctl - but no battery information is being reported by that either

    Any suggestions? Thanks very much in advance

    You can install the "Solaar" program with a GUI interface.
    Code:
    sudo apt install solaar
    Or cli with:
    Code:
    upower --dump
    Not quite as elegant as Solaar though.

    Thanks for the reply.. Solaar doesn't work ("battery level unavailable") and nor does upower --dump

    Code:
    $ solaar show

    It seems like the mouse/ receiver isn't recognised by upower:
    Code:
    $ upower --dump

      power supply:         no

      has statistics:       no
      unknown
        warning-level:       none
        icon-name:          'battery-missing-symbolic'
    
    Daemon:

      on-battery:      no
      lid-is-closed:   no
      lid-is-present:  no
      critical-action: PowerOff
    Any further suggestions?

    Re: Logitech g703 battery level reporting

    Well if you could of seen your battery, it would of went like:
    Code:
    upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/mouse_hidpp_battery_0
      native-path:          hidpp_battery_0
      model:                M510
      serial:               1025-5f-c3-cb-e4
      power supply:         no
      updated:              Mon 21 Oct 2019 12:16:00 PM MDT (100 seconds ago)
      has history:          yes
      has statistics:       yes
      mouse
        present:             yes
        rechargeable:        yes
        state:               discharging
        warning-level:       none
        battery-level:       normal
        percentage:          55% (should be ignored)
        icon-name:          'battery-low-symbolic'
    That output of yours has me stumped ATM.
    I'm not sure the device has support just this yet. I think it has to do with Bluetooth version of device)

    Yeah - that's what I would have expected
    I also posted on Solaar's github and just got a response that they know they need to add support for it: https://github.com/pwr-Solaar/Solaar/issues/570
    Hopefully they'll add support soon

    I got nothing to solve the problem but can confirm its not just that device. My apple mouse used to report battery now it doesn't same with my logitech mx.

    Looks like support is coming in kernel 5.4 https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...=Linux-5.4-HID

    Support for the Logitech G700/G700s receivers as well as the Logitech Lightspeed receiver.
    Hopefully..
