    Works, but seems to drop out sometimes?

  • koema@___.ch says:

    Works flawlessly and can be paired/unpaired with ltunify-git

  • framari@___.org says:

    Works fine. To associate multiple devices an additional software is needed (i.e. Solaar)

  • Anonymous says:

    Works, but needs to be paired with downloaded software. Of course the software provided by Logitech does not support Linux. If you have access to a Windows device you can pair it there and then transfer the USB dongle over; this will work. Fortunately there are some libre solutions that work well if you don’t have access to this.

  • marcus.knappert@___.de says:

    Works without any known problem.

  • Anonymous says:

    Fx lights control doesn’t work in Linux despite trying various packages for that (Windows settings carry over to Linux). Special, modified function keys and some fx light keys don’t work. Other then that, rest works fine.
