Ubuntu – Undetected Logitech MX 5500 Keyboard and Mouse


I want to install Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit but I can't since Logitech MX 5500 Combo (Keyboard/Mouse) is not detected. I'm new to Ubuntu.

  • That is part of a bug had been around for a while. Launchpad Bug 870227.

    The only fix for now for 12.10 is to have a separate keyboard (or boot in to an OS that can modify your installation) and go in to /lib/udev/rules.d/97-bluetooth-hid2hci.rules and comment out these lines:

    # Logitech devices
    #KERNEL=="hiddev*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c70[345abce]|c71[34bc]", \
    #RUN+="hid2hci --method=logitech-hid --devpath=%p"

    Just put a # at the beginning like in the code above.
