[Bug 269851] Re: Bluetooth Logitech Dinovo Edge Keyboard/Mouse dones not work anymore

After doing a 9.10 to 10.04 upgrade, I noticed on the first boot that a
screen appeared asking for permission for my Logitch bluetooth
keyboard/trackpad (Dinovo Edge) to connect.  There was also a check box
to "always remember" this setting.

Unfortunately, while I was reading it, after about 10 seconds, it timed
out and closed.  I could not figure out how to get that dialog back and
the Dinovo edge did not work.  I hooked up a Ps2 keyboard and mouse and
followed the instructions in Post #25 by Tommy.

That worked and my Dinovo edge is back to normal.  The file the
instructions tell you to edit has a warning in it saying not to edit
this file because it will be overwritten on subsequent upgrades, so this
is just a temporary work around.

Assuming the dialog that showed on first boot would have fixed the
issue, there should not be a timeout on it.  It should stay up until
dismissed.  There should also be some way to get it to come back.
Rebooting the machine did not help.  Once timed out, the dialog will not
come back.  Also, even if it stayed on screen, you could not use the
Dinovo Edge to click it, because it doesn't have permission to connect
yet, so you need time to hook up another keyboard.

Why was the default changed in the 70-hid2hci.rules from hidraw to
hiddev for 10.04?  I assume there had to be a good reason, but it
negatively impacts Logitech bluetooth keyboards.
