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.
You can use Solaar as a GUI application or via its command-line interface. It allows you to list the connected devices and show information about each device, pair and unpair compatible Logitech peripherals, and control some changeable features of devices, such as scroll wheel direction and function key behavior.
Up-to-date prebuilt packages are available for some Linux distros in their standard repositories.
