  Bluetooth Logitech keyboard and mouse issues

Status in “bluez” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When booting up or making changes in the system BIOS, the Logitech
  DiNovio Bluetooth keyboard is perfectly usable but once Ubuntu 8.1
  loads to the login screen, it is necessary to use a wired keyboard to
  enter the login and password, then the Bluetooth keyboard works just
  fine once Ubuntu finishes booting up. Clearly Ubuntu is taking away a
  basic system function before returning it again with its own driver.
  This issue also existed in 8.04.

  Also, after booting or reawakening the system from sleep, the mouse
  reverts to right-hand even though the settings remain for left-hand.
  The only way to get it straightened out is to set it to right-hand,
  save the changes, then set it back to left-hand operation every time.
  This problem did not appear to exist until 8.10.

  With the same Bluetooth hardware, the screen on the separate MediaPad
  is useless and, as the keyboard itself has no Cap-Lock light, there
  needs to be some on-screen text to say so but it is not there. I see
  many postings on Linux and Ubuntu forums about this hardware so there
  is definitely a need to better software for it even if Logitech itself
  has fallen short in the Linux area. Applies to 8.04 and 8.10.
