Hello to the multitude of great Slackers on LQ.

I have a 2008 XP 2GB netbook, plus now a 2009 Win7 4GB 64bit (non-UEFI luckily).
N.B.: not yet 'ready' to do a (dual-boot) hdd install
So, I run in VBox, or boot live USB which I use Yumi to create.

Yumi doesn't have an option for (any) slack

Here's how I pair a Logitech K810 persistently, on Debian 9 Stretch (should work on most Linux distributions).

The important thing is to do the "trust" step AFTER the "connect" step. If you get the order wrong, your connection will not persist after a reboot!

I do the following as root:
bluetoothctl -a
