[SOLVED] Logitech MK850

Just bought a Logitech MK850 keyboard & mouse combo. Plug and play! Works perfect on Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon.

I'm running kernel 5.8, everything works, battery status in taskbar, every function and all fn keys.

Just posting this for anyone seeking info on this type and model.

Mint XFCE 19.2 would be the most viable option for that laptop, MATE and Cinnamon would be too demanding. I'd actually point you towards trying out MX-Linux instead though.
MX is a very good option idd.

Re: Linux Mint on HP 6730b Laptop

1. Distrowatch.com might help
2. No idea
3. You can download an .ISO file and use that with Linuxlive, you are not limited to it's list. LM17.1 is no longer supported
4. Yes, more or less
5. No
6. Again distrowatch

@Da Londo - dd is not copy and paste, it's cloning sector by sector.
Yes, idd. I was actually not referring to your reply. Just stating that it is not as simple as it sounds to make usb sticks like that.

Re: Copying an installation of LM

That will not be as copy paste as you think. As for the drivers, they come with the kernel, it will be very unlikely to have got to search for them online.

Re: Linux Mint on HP 6730b Laptop

I used LinuxLive USB Creator back in the day when I was still on Windows. https://www.linuxliveusb.com/

With a Live USB stick you can find out if your hardware suppports Linux, or the other way around actually.

When you install you will have the option to format the drive.

HexChat is the IRC client for getting help on LM. It was definitely not started remotely.

Re: Strange Crashes

As a fellow Ryzen user, I urge you to upgrade your kernel. You absolutely need at least version 5.7 to take advantage of the recent AMD-specific optimisations, including the integrated Radeon Vega Graphics hardware acceleration. Mint supports kernel 5.8.

You're probably on another kernel with 20, you should try another program.

Re: Power Management turns screens off but they pop back on

So, I installed 20.1, clean install, problem persists. I'm not sure but it seems to me the monitors have something to do with it, will test with another monitor shortly.
