Solaar - Logitech Unifying Software for Linux
« on: 2016/03/05, 03:37:08 »
I recently purchased 2 Logitech MX Anywhere and 2 Logitech MX Performance mice as replacements for my Logitech Trackman Marble.  The Anywhere mouse is ambidextrous for the most part, which is why I purchased it in addition to the Performance mouse.  The Anywhere mouse will allow me to switch to my left hand in an effort to stave off RSI-related hand issues.

So, I was wondering if there was any software available for Linux for Logitech products.  Turns out there are a few packages under Debian.  I found one in particular that caught my eye; solaar.  Solaar enables you to pair a Logitech unifying device with the unifying receiver, which is a very small USB dongle.  Solaar can also provide a battery status icon, which sits in the tray area, for some Logitech unifying devices.

The battery status icon for the mouse is on the far left in the screenshot below.
