This is an unofficial driver for Logitech mice and keyboard.

This project requires a C++14 compiler, cmake, libevdev, libudev, and libconfig. For popular distributions, I've included commands below.

Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S cmake libevdev libconfig pkgconf

Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt install cmake libevdev-dev libudev-dev libconfig++-dev

Fedora: sudo dnf install cmake libevdev-devel systemd-devel libconfig-devel gcc-c++

Gentoo Linux: sudo emerge dev-libs/libconfig dev-libs/libevdev dev-util/cmake virtual/libudev

Solus: sudo eopkg install libevdev-devel libconfig-devel libgudev-devel

openSUSE: sudo zypper install cmake libevdev-devel systemd-devel libconfig-devel gcc-c++ libconfig++-devel libudev-devel


To build this project, run:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

To install, run sudo make install after building. You can set the daemon to start at boot by running sudo systemctl enable logid or sudo systemctl enable --now logid if you want to enable and start the daemon.
