羅技 Unifying 接收器是無線裝置的接收器,可同時連接最多六個相容滑鼠及鍵盤。 和該接收器一組的輸入裝置已預先配對,並能隨插即用。而針對額外的輸入裝置,羅技僅提供 Windows 軟體以供配對。 不過 Benjamin Tissoires 在 kernel mailing list 發表了一支程式,令 Linux 下也有其功能。

編譯 unifying_pair

此程式亦可於 AUR 找到。

首先確定系統已安裝了 C 編譯器。

# pacman -S gcc 

將下列程式碼複制到檔案並命名,假設名為 unifying_pair.c

將原始碼編譯成可執行檔 unifying_pair

$ gcc -o unifying_pair unifying_pair.c



$ cat /sys/class/hidraw/hidrawX/device/uevent |grep NAME

(你必須把 X 替換成系統上存在的整數) 直到找到 Logitech USB Receiver 為止(在此假設 X 恰為 0)

$ cat /sys/class/hidraw/hidraw0/device/uevent |grep NAME
  HID_NAME=Logitech USB Receiver


# ./unifying_pair /dev/hidraw0


Known Problems

Keyboard Layout via xorg.conf

With kernel 3.2 the Unifying Receiver got its own kernel module hid_logitech_dj which does not work flawlessly together with keyboard layout setting set via xorg.conf. A temporary workaround is to use xorg-setxkbmap and set the layout manually. For example for a German layout with no deadkeys one has to execute:

$ setxkbmap -layout de -variant nodeadkeys

To automate this process one could add this line to xinitrc.
