How to Report the Keyboard and Mouse Type


I am setting up an office computer. I really like my home keyboard and mouse. I want to look up the price for another one for the office, since I can't buy it in town again anymore. It is a matching wireless logitech pair. My city library has the same keyboard mice set. But beyond that, I don't know. How do I have my Linux Mint system report to me by commmand line, exactly the model of keyboard and mouse, so I can go look it up to buy on Amazon? I bet a lot of other people want to do this too. I'm trying:

Code:
inxi -Faz
...that I've used in the past, but no luck. I tried looking at the man page, but it's too hard to understand that for this program. I understand what the program does in general. The other thing I might know to do is have the library find the information for me by using their own computer's device manager.

For now, the keyboard and mouse I have is fine, depeding however on this problem's solution and the price. Mainly, I hope the price. But I would hope it's not too mmuch! I really want that keyboard and mouse!

All available information you're likely to get can be had from /usr/sbin/hwinfo --keyboard and /usr/sbin/hwinfo --mouse. Inxi output is generally limited to commonly useful information, but has many options for controlling verbosity.

All the Logitech keyboards and mice I have, have that info on stickers on the mouse bottom, or moulded into the plastic. Have a look there.

No sticker on the back. There's a serial number, which might be of use later.

The bottom, I think, is what I want, but it's not so helpful. Unless I'm decoding it wrong? What now? I know the reciever name now, and I will try, but I bet it won't find what I'm looking for.

When I google the reciever, I can see from a picture, I must have a Logitech MK320 keyboard.

Comes up on amazon too. Problem avoided, but not really fully solved, as I was trying to get it to report to me that. But it did get me what I was looking for. So closing, but if someone knows how to report, don't hesitate to post.

If the keyboard and mouse are battery powered (mine are) then running 'inxi -Bxx' should show the devices (as will inxi -Fzxx). For example
Code:
# inxi -Bxx
Battery:
  Device-1: hidpp_battery_0 model: Logitech MX Ergo Multi-Device Trackball
    serial: 06-e4-a3-3c charge: 55% (should be ignored) status: discharging
  Device-2: hidpp_battery_1 model: Logitech K350 serial: e6-28-b0-cb
    charge: 70% (should be ignored) status: discharging
shows mine as a Logitech K350 & Logitech MX Ergo which is exactly what they are.
