Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard  

Connecting your logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard to your ubuntu PC and persistently retain the connection is a cumbersome process. This method automates the repairing of the K810.

Installation #

You should first make sure hidd is installed. Its deprecated but worked best for me. I then checked it with blueman because the default bluetooth manager did not help me at all.

sudo apt-get install bluez-compat blueman

Acquire the keyboard and keyboard.sh files from


Edit keyboard.sh so your bluetooth mac address is filled in and place the files as /etc/keyboard.sh and /etc/init.d/keyboard and make them executable.

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/keyboard /etc/keyboard.sh

If you want to connect manually then just;

sudo /etc/keyboard.sh

Thats it. Next time you reboot you should be able to connect the keyboard if the keyboard is in pairing mode.

This script was tested on ubuntu x64 14.04
