How to get logitech m705 working in linux mint

I am using a new laptop, ASUS Zenbook, running linux mint cinnamon. My preferred mouse is a logitech m705 for use on the go. I needed to get it working since it wasn’t out of the box. There’s several ways to get the unifying receiver working. The easiest for me was using a project on github, logitech unifier.

Simple to do.


cd ~

wget https://github.com/treeder/logitech_unifier/archive/master.zip

unzip master.zip

cd logitech_unifier-master

./autopair.sh

Then followed the prompts, turned it on and it worked. Much simpler than the other options I considered.
