How to pair logitech mouse using solaar


In case anybody else finds this useful...

I have a logitech mx anywhere 3s mouse, which only works via bluetooth out of the box. It is however possible to get the mouse to pair wirelessly with a logibolt receiver and, once done, the mouse appears to remember the connection making it much easier to use with tinycore.

Using the solaar extension in the tc-15.x x86_64 repo:

--- Code: ---tce-load -i solaar
sudo modprobe hid-logitech-dj
sudo modprobe hid-logitech-hidpp
sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---solaar show
Bolt Receiver
  Device path  : /dev/hidraw4
  USB id       : 046d:C548
  Serial       : 35363645374336303239334145323333
--- End code ---

Then using the serial number found above:
--- Code: ---solaar pair 35363645374336303239334145323333
Bolt Pairing: long-press the pairing key or button on your device (timing out in 30 seconds).
Bolt Pairing: discovered MX Anywhere 3
Bolt Pairing: press left, left, right, right, right, right, left, left, left, right
and then press left and right buttons simultaneously
Paired device 1: MX Anywhere 3S (MX Anywhere 3) [B037:C13AC561]
--- End code ---
