Ubuntu with Logitech V470

Just got in hand my new Logitech V470 Bluetooth Laser Mouse -Tikus Laser Gigi Biru, my college said in Indonesian :). I purchase the white one, look nice with Apple style, more lighter than my previous Logitech V400 and got punch pocket to store it.

Ok, here are the step-by-step enabling your Logitech Mouse V470 in Gutsy:

  • If you don’t have gnome-vfs-obexftp were not installed, so issue this command:
    $ sudo apt-get install gnome-vfs-obexftp
  • From bluetooth applet right-click to show the context menu, and choose Preference
  • Click Services tab, make sure Input service checkbox were enabled, click Add button
  • Choose Bloetooth Laser Travel Mouse
