Solaar is a free and open source manager for many Logitech keyboards, mice and trackballs on Linux


  • Solaar is a Linux manager for many Logitech keyboards, mice, and trackpads that connect wirelessly to a USB Unifying, Bolt, Lightspeed, or Nano receiver, connect directly via a USB cable, or connect via Bluetooth;
  • Solaar does not work with peripherals from other companies;
  • Solaar can be used as a GUI application or via its command-line interface. Both interfaces are able to list the connected devices and show information about each device, often including battery status;
  • Solaar is able to pair and unpair devices with receivers as supported by the device and receiver;
  • Solaar can also control some changeable features of devices, such as smooth scrolling or function key behavior. Solaar keeps track of these changed settings on a per-computer basis and the GUI application restores them whenever a device connects. (Devices forget most settings when powered down.);
  • Integration with the system tray.
