Post your mouse and keyboard here.

Post by Instigator »

Hi, I've decided to compile a list of what people's use, it's purpose is to create a list of working devices that work with Linux mint.

List should help my self and others ensure they are buying the right devices.

For example madcatz is a bad one
Will also make an avoid list too if people know anymore.

List so far

Working perfect
Logitech MK320 keyboard/mouse combo.
Logitech K400 wireless keyboard with built in touchpad
Tecknet M268 mouce
IBM kpd8923 white keyboard with an orange
Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
PixArt USB Optical Mouse / Throwaway @ Bestbuy $12.oo
KB-28G keyboard
CoolerMaster Devastator 2 wired keyboard and mouse (needs script for lights)
Corsair M95 and K70 mouse and keyboard (user unsure on mouse extra buttons)

Semi working
Roccat Isku keyboard (grub no arrow keys) but works for rest.


Not working
Mad Catz R.A.T.3

:D Yes there is but its a huge mess having a list of only mice and keyboards what real users use, would make searching much easier.

I don't know what I've got. Something used from the Goodwill second store. (Three bucks each.) The keyboard says Compaq on it, and I can't find any brand on the mouse. Oh, wait, it says Onn on it.

I too have the Logitech 400 usb keyboard/touchpad. Working, but does anybody know how to make the touchpad controls show up in the hardware control center? I want to disable mouse clicks with touchpad.
Thanks.

All the below is with LM 18 Cinnamon 64-bit.

Working perfectly:

Logitech K800 wireless keyboard (USB receiver in USB 3.0 port) and Logitech T630 wireless bluetooth mouse
Logitech k740 wired keyboard (in any USB port) and Logitech T630 wireless bluetooth mouse
Logitech k740 wired keyboard (in amy USB port) and Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse (with receiver on a USB 6' extender cable plugged into a USB 2.0 port and the receiver as far from a USB 3.0 port as possible).
The Logitech T630 bluetooth mouse pairs, connects, and works perfectly with LM18 right out of the box and upon every reboot/power cycle.

Barely works:

Logitech K800 wireless keyboard (USB receiver in USB 3.0 port) and Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse (with receiver in USB 2.0 port)
Logitech K800 wireless keyboard Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse with receiver in USB 2.0 port and the keyboard paired to the same receiver as the mouse via solaar.

Essentially non-functional:

Logitech K800 wireless keyboard Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse with receiver in USB 3.0 port and the keyboard paired to the same receiver as the mouse via solaar.

Completely non-functional:

Trying to use the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse via bluetooth. It will pair and connect to the laptop bluetooth but no mouse functioning at all. Only works with a USB receiver even when using one of the other of 3 device connection settings.
