Logitech DiNovo Bluetooth Combo

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I just got OSX86 installed with very few problems and compatibility issues. Parts list:

Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 O/C'ed to 2.3 Ghz (max 3.5)

EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB (G80, reference board)

2 each Sata DVD and HD's

I also have an x-fi sound card(useless) and a tv tuner(equally useless)



Anyway, get through the install and get osx setup the way I want it using a wireless portable mouse and a spanish keyboard I picked up for $2. I plug in the bluetooth dongle for the Logitech Dinovo Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse after installing Logitech Control Center, and it recognizes the set as a trackball. :) Anyway, even though LCC only sees a trackball, the keyboard works fine, sans media keys, mediapad, and mouse.


I install some other apps and restart my compy and once osx loads back up, I find that neither the keyboard, mediapad, nor mouse work at all, but there is a constant, uncommanded 'f7' input. I unplug the dongle then plug it back in and LCC finds a wireless scroll mouse. However, the keyboard (including meda keys) and the mouse work perfectly. The mediapad works, sort of. The media keys work but none of the number keys tap out the correct number, if they don't input a return or caps lock.


So, hopefully this helps someone, and if anyone has any suggestions, shoot.

Sounds like the logitech BT dongle. See http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry742268 for a kext that fixes this or get a BT dongle that works. The logitech device run in RF mode by default so they don't require the same setup as when they are in BT mode and work in the BIOS, etc. It's also listed in the HW Compatibility List for 10.5.2 as well http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...her_Accessories
