    Default Cannot configure wireless keyboard and mouse

    Hi,

    I've bought wireless keyboard and mouse. (Logitech model MK270)

    I have two usb/bluetooth devices, but I can not make them work.
    Batteries are new, but I don't see any light on

    Do you know what can I do to make them work ?

    Thanks

    Hi
    The logitech devices use a 2.4GHz unifying receiver (not bluetooth) and usbhid driver... just plug that receiver (usually stored in where the batteries go) into a spare USB port and all should be good..?

    Install the Solaar package for monitoring/pairing up.

    Curious. I just plugged in the receiver, pulled the battery slips from keyboard & mouse, switched both on and booted. I've never heard of solaar and it's definitely not installed.

    Just Googling for others with mk270 as I can't get the Calculator hotkey to launch kcalc.

    Hi
    It may have been mis-paired with the receiver... if you have to replace the receiver dongle, solaar is the perfect toolto re-pair/add devices.
