Logitech Unifying Receiver

Several months ago, I have acquired wireless keyboard using tiny Logitech Unifying Receiver. Since that time I was a little worried by the lack of appropriate management options, however recently I found Solaar - a Linux device manager for such peripherals, which solves my doubts.

Check out list of supported devices before installation.

To use Solaar, add the following repository at first, then update list of the available packages, and install solaar package.

$ cat << EOF | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/solaar.list
deb http://pwr.github.io/Solaar/packages/ ./
deb-src http://pwr.github.io/Solaar/packages/ ./
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install solaar

After that execute solaar application to use graphical user interface or solaar-cli if you prefer command line interface.
