Logitech MX 5500 on Slackware 13 x86_64


I am having difficulties to connect MX 5500 Keyboard and mouse through the Bluetooth dongle. I am running on the latest kernel, 2.6.32.7, from Slackware64 current.
I have done some searches and followed the procedures below:

Quote:
# chmod a+x /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
edit /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth
Quote:
HIDD_ENABLE=true
HID2HCI_ENABLE=false
Quote:
# echo -n "1234" > /etc/bluetooth/passkeys/default
edit /etc/dbus-1/system.d/bluetooth.conf
Quote:
...
<allow send_destination="org.bluez"/>
<allow send_interface="org.bluez.Agent"/>
<allow send_interface="org.bluez.PasskeyAgent"/>
...
Restart my system.

Plug in the dongle with red button pressed.

Same thing happened when I tried to connect keyboard.

What should I do to connect keyboard and mouse?

I solved this problem.

The Bluetooth keyboard and mouse name are misleading. Logitech MX 5500 Keyboard and mouse can be used like a regular wireless keyboard and mouse.

1. Plug in the usb dongle without holding the red button.
2. Slackware will recognize both keyboard and mouse.
