Wireless bluetooth mouse keyboard?

Postby Sunnz » Sun Nov 19, 2006 12:40

I am trying to convert one of my friend into the world of GNU/Linux!!!

The first thing came to mind was Ubuntu, a supposedly easy version of Linux. Unfortunately the mouse/keyboard just doesn't work, and their forum offers no help.

Then Sabayon comes to mind. Now, Sabayon is huge, but it'll be impressive if it works!!! So, does bluetooth usually works with it? Has anyone tried?

Thanks.

. . Sabayon is a LiveCD, so probably quickest to try it out rather than wait for firsthand feedback from someone with the exact same hardware [which BTW you have not posted].

It is not my computer.

I only get to try it once a week.

There is no way I can remember the exact model number off by heart. All I know is that it is a logitech.

It be will to good if Linux works with any wireless mouse keyboard at all.

Ok thanks, I'll try it.

Another questino, IF it works, is there an option to install AiGLX/Beryl out of the box? Or is it just XGL/Compiz at the moment?
