Thanks for starting this thread. Neat to have no cables as keyboard/trackpad replacement when I have a few keyboards that failed badly on me :-( 

Just hoping for a plug and play solution

Can't get the lsusb utility ... said package not found by yum.

The wireless stuff are from Logitec...with model
mk260 (logitech wireless combo with mouse)
k400r (wireless keyboard with trackpad)

Cheers and will try the workround.
