Thread: How add/configure wireless keyboard/mouse for opensuse?

    Default How add/configure wireless keyboard/mouse for opensuse?

    I'm about to add a wireless mouse and keyboard to the computer (running opensuse 11.2). Do I just plug them in? Do I have to load any drivers? Do I keep my wired keyboard/mouse plugged in at first?

    It's: logitech cordless desktop wave pro

    In my wife's case for openSUSE-11.0 (some time back), we just plugged it in and booted. I think we had to go into the BIOS to change the USB setting to legacy mode (but I'm not certain). We removed the wired (but it may not have been necessary - I'm not certain).

    She has since switched to a different wired keyboard (she disliked the wireless keyboard behaviour under MS-Windows).

    WOW. Here's the complete list of install and configuration steps I needed to get this mouse+keyboard to work with openSUSE 11.2:

    1. Plug in the USB stick

    ....
    That's it! I don't think I've ever used a single piece of hardware where that was the case.
