Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse battery warning

Postby dnel on Tue Nov 12, 2013 12:37 pm

Hi, I have a Logitech K350 keyboard and M505 wireless mouse. Since installing LMDE (coming from Mint 15 MATE), I get reports of low battery on my mouse even though the battery is brand new after replacing it. It usually reads 100% from the power tray icon but occasionally drops when doing a drag-click it seems. My keyboard always reads 1% also with brand new batteries. It's clearly reading the battery level wrong, is there any way to fix or disable this warning?

H
i bring up this topic because i have the same problem now and it seems i cannot find a solution around.
I am with LMDE 64 UP7 and i also got Logitech trackball m750.
The warning of low battery is quite annoying.
Thanks in advance

Sorry, can't add much except I have the same problem with the Logitech K340 keyboard under LMDE UP7. The battery level of the corresponding mouse is read correctly.

Interesting enough, SolydX (with Gnome) reads the both mouse and keyboard levels correctly. Must be some subtle difference.

I hope, UP8 will fix it. SolydX is based on a newer snaptshot of Debian testing than LMDE UP7, so let's see.
