Wireless USB keyboard & Mouse

Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:49 pm

Hi guys,

Hope this hasnt been asked before but im having a few problems with my USB wireless setup on the PI.

I got my RaspberryPI this morning and amazed at how small it is! for some reason i know it was said to be credit card size but wow its so small :) Anyway...

What it is i have an Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse set-up which i use on my everyday set-up, I thought that i might be able to just plug and play with the Raspberry PI with this set-up, BUT sadly i seem to be getting typing errors with it like keyboard lag and the enter keeps pressing, It picks it up as what it is i see the driver load on bootup.

Basicly is this a known problem or should i try something else? Or should i just go and buy a cheapy usb keyboard/mouse setup :) ?

Replies very much appreciated.

Jim

Can I add to this that I went out and bough (on day of pi arrival) a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, model Desktop 800 and it had exactly tha same laggyness and repeat char entry problem.
I would suggest avoiding this combo

I think it's a Debian problem. I don't see the problem with ArchLinux.

Just for reference:

I also saw this issue (having to press the key twice for the typed character to show up; also a 'sticking' issue - where the character 'auto-repeats' even though nothing is pressed) on a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo.

This was on the Debian build - I will try the other images to see what result I get.

I don't have the exact version /model numbers of the keyboard/mouse with me right now, but I'll follow up once I get hold of the details.

I use a cheap Logitech $25 US from Walmart. Absolutely no problems with any of the 4 distros I have tried. It is a keyboard and mouse and uses a single nano receiver.

It could be that your device requires more power than the rasbperry pi (version 1) can deliver. So: Can you power your keyboard through a hub?

If you're feeling adventurous, you can short the two fuses near the USB connector on the bottom of the board.
