Update done on Plasma x86_64, from 1.1.3
MX Keys and MX Vertical got connected, both using bluetooth and RF.
Battery levels are unchanged.
Ok for me.

MGA8-64 Plasma on Acer Aspire 5253.
No installation issues.
The keyboard of this laptop is defective, so I am working on an USB attached Logitech keyboard.
Launching solaar shows its primary window, but no devices are detected. Looking for info I found https://pwr-solaar.github.io/Solaar/ and there I read
"Solaar will detect some Logitech devices that connect via a USB cable or Bluetooth."
So I can only suppose this particular keyboard is not one of those.
The rule editor opens OK, has two default rules for brightness with keys indicated 00C7 and 00C8, which are supposed to be Fn+F1 and Fn+F2, but this keyboard has no Fn keu (it's rather old) and therefore I cannot test this option.
The keyboard operates flawlessly, so I give it the OK, taking Christian's Comment 2 into consideration.

Comment 4 Thomas Andrews 2022-07-06 15:08:25 CEST
Herman sounded a bit hesitant, so I decided to do my own test as additional confirmation.

I dislike using the touchpad on my Probook 6550b, so I have a Logitech M325 mouse with the Unifying receiver installed. I am also doing this test with the proposed updates for binutils, gcc, and glibc already installed.

No installation issues. I did a reboot, for no particular reason other than to see what solaar would report after the reboot. It still sees my M325 mouse, and switched the systray icon to reporting battery level as soon as I moved it. Battery level is at 70%, correct because I'm using a rechargeable nimh battery in this mouse. It is also correctly reporting the spare M325 mouse that I have paired with this receiver, but is out of range at the moment.

So I'm confirming the OK, and validating. Advisory in comment 1.
