Logitech Dinovo Mini
« on: May 01, 2009, 01:44:38 am »
I'm having trouble with the install of a Dinovo Mini and 0710. The keyboard works as does the trackpad, but the trackpad only works as a directional pad- I want to use it in click and point mode ie. like a mouse.

I have a PS2 keyboard and USB mouse already connected. One thread suggested a change to /etc/modprobe.d/options with

options usbhid quirks=0x046d:0xc71f:0x00080000

followed by

sudo update-initramfs -u

but no difference. So I'm assuming I have an xorg issue?

Here are the xorg InputDevice Sections:

Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier   "Generic Keyboard"
   Driver   "kbd"
   Option   "CoreKeyboard"
   Option   "XkbRules"   "xorg"
   Option   "XkbModel"   "pc105"
   Option   "XkbLayout"   "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier   "Configured Mouse"
   Driver   "mouse"
   Option   "CorePointer"
   Option   "Device"   "/dev/input/mice"
   Option   "Protocol"   "ImPS/2"
   Option   "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
   Option   "Emulate3Buttons"   "true"
EndSection

Help please?!

Yes, I did try the quirks mod from the wiki.

The Dinovo has a slide switch that changes the operation of the trackpad. It can act either as a directional touchpad or as an actual mousepad. The issue I have is that the keyboard and touchpad work fine- when I change the slide switch to mouse mode, only the keyboard works.

I'm wondering if I need an xorg change since the Dinovo may appear as both a keyboard and mouse in a single usb device? What else could be missing?

an HID template will need to be made for this device, along with a DCE driver that detects switch operation, and flips things accordingly.

How to do that is an exercise for the reader.

I have edited the wiki after some factfinding myself, the 0x0008000 quirk did not do it for me as well, 0x0002000 worked like a charm however and I love the pad  ;D. I can say I am very pleased with it because it gives me a keyboard in a decent size without losing the multimedia options.

Thom,

of course you are right, but I was taking baby steps for now. Hopefully next I will be able to make it supported in whatever way (with possible help  ::)
As far as myself concerns the story continues..

Tom, the Dinovo Mini is already plug and play!
Well, not in 7.10, but in 8.10...

There is a few missing buttons, that do not show like the Fiire and Gyration remotes.
The MCE button and zoom +-.

If you get the HID stuff done, you might be able to fix those buttons to work as F6, F7, F8 since this keyboard does not have any F keys.

Hi,

Did you see this wiki?

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Logitech_Dinovo_Mini

Cheers.

OKey. here is my story. I did fresh install 8.10 two days ago and my logitech Dinovo was kinda plug in play. mouse pad was working just fine. all the media buttons as well. to get my Fn7 and Fn8 keys working i followed wiki guide. but it seems to me little confusing. I have few questions for the wiki guide.

Q 1.  where should I add the line, options usbhid quirks=0x046d:0xc71f:0x00080000 in my options file ? I mean beginning or end ?  What is the command in Kubuntu to edit text file ?

Q.2  My /etc/X11/xorg.conf file does not have any thing that says.....

Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier     "Keyboard0"
   Driver         "keyboard"
   Option         "XkbLayout" "us"
   Option         "XkbVariant" "basic"
   Option         "XkbModel" "pc105" 
EndSection

so what am I suppose to do. ?

I modified my /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes

put those FK08 ; FK07 numbers and  I got my window key working but still no key working to bring main menu.  I am lost , Please help me.

by the way, I am editing those files with sudo kate (file path) in terminal. I am not sure is it the proper way ?

Thanks.

Hello Mr. LMCE God, Guru or whoever using this little device.

Someone please reply this post whenever you get a little free time. Do I need to do any thing with my Xorg.conf file ??

Thank you.
