Mouse (Logitech M705) freeze on Fedora 34

I installed Fedora 34 and I experience mouse freeze after a while (20-30 minutes of work) but the keyboard works fine - I can still do something using shortcuts. I’m sure the problem is not in the mouse because it works fine with Windows 10 (currently writing this text on it). How do I fix it?
Additional information:

  • I made dnf update and restarted - it didn’t help
  • My mouse is wireless: Logitech M705
  • It’s the first time I’m trying Fedora but I have experience with Linux

Welcome to the community!

Cool, i guess i need to buy me such one. Mine not writes text, even being a logitech too :stuck_out_tongue:

Jokes by side, please read the #start-here section if you not had time yet.

looks old …

It is under the Windows downloads.

Seems I found the cause of the problem - an Xbox controller was connected to a PC. There is no freeze without it


For managing most of your Logitech wireless devices try solaar. For updating the firmware, use fwupdmgr. Did you get any errors in the logs around the time the mouse became unusable? Check dmesg or journalctl -kf.
