Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse..

Post by tenfoot » Wed Feb 14, 2018 3:32 am

LinuxMint v18.3 MATE

My Logitech Cordless InternetPro keyboard and mouse, Model No. Y-RAJ56A has served me well for several years. However, the characters on some of the keys have worn off and I'm finding it difficult to see them.

Currently I am looking to buy either the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo MK550, or the Logitech MK520R Wireless Combo, or the Logitech Wireless MK850 Performance but none of them specify that they work with Linux.

I have searched the Hardware Database at the Linux Mint Community website but the latest Mint version for Logitech keyboards is Rosa.

So, my question is: has any forum member used any of the models I'm looking at or knows of anyone who has used one of them successfully with LinuxMint, please? Alternatively, is anyone able to suggest a wireless keyboard/mouse combo other than Logitech, please?

That is aggravating isn't it?

My laptop's function keys will not work right unless you use the Function Key as a preface first...
F5 should always be "Refresh", but not on this keyboard.

I have the old LogicTech keyboard you talk about, I really liked it, just too much trouble to use it separately from a laptop.
