    Killing the Daemon is not a permanent fix, even if it worked for you. It will resume either right away or at next boot. By the way, mine won't die.

    Anyway, the fault is not tied to Options, as it occurs even with it not installed.

    Logi Options is not saving anything, as soon as i leave the app or i jump to another app it goes back to default settings.

    @Jonathan Blaine - Mine wouldn't die either but I just tried multiple times (out of frustration) and it eventually died.

    I have not had an issue with my mouse since I did that. I havent restarted my comp yet, but I have disconnected from the BT mouse multiple times and it has reconnected and had no issues since.

    It does work again after updating the firmware of the unifying receiver.

    I updated firmware. Still dead.

    Terminal reports ICC as

    .ControlCenter.HIDDriver (3.9.9)

    Receiver:

    ch.Unifying.HIDDriver (1.3.9)

    We STILL have a problem, Houston.

    Note: This post was updated <11:39 AM PST>

     

    If you use Logitech Control Center (LCC) 3.9.8 or earlier, please update to the latest version of LCC before you upgrade to macOS 10.15 (Catalina).

    To install the latest version, open LCC and click on any device. From the menu bar, select Check for Updates. You can also get the latest version from the Download page here https://support.logi.com/hc/articles/360025297833

    If you experience any issues, please check this FAQ: Important information for Logitech Control Center and macOS Catalina and Mojave https://support.logi.com/hc/articles/360023202814

    NOTE: We are aware that after upgrading from macOS 10.14 Mojave or earlier to macOS 10.15 Catalina with LCC (Logitech Control Center) versions 3.9.8 or below, some Logitech Unifying-based devices may stop working. This is a known issue on macOS 10.15 Catalina and we’re actively working with Apple to address it.

    In the meantime, if your Unifying device is not working after upgrading to macOS Catalina, please upgrade to LCC 3.9.9 from this link and reboot the system to complete the installation.

    If your device is still not working, please check which version of the Unifying drivers are loaded into the system, to do so:

     

    1. Launch Terminal from /Applications/Utilities folder

    2. Run the following command :

    kextstat | grep -i Logi

    105    1 0xffffff7f8252b000 0x47000    0x47000 com.Logitech.ControlCenter.HIDDriver (3.9.9) BB513FDB-C9C7-3A6F-AD71-58CDD322B095 <104 76 49 25 6 5 3>
      106    0 0xffffff7f82582000 0x16000    0x16000 com.Logitech.Unifying.HIDDriver (1.3.9) 4E15EC6B-3BB3-3644-B366-F5EFB857C2BB <105 104 49 25 6 5 3>

     

    If the “com.Logitech.Unifying.HIDDriver” is any version other than 1.3.9, then the new driver was not properly loaded by macOS Catalina. To fix this issue, please try the following steps:

    1. Start your system in Recovery Mode:

    - Restart your computer (From the menu bar, click on the Apple logo and select Restart)

    - Hold the "Command" and "R" keys until the Apple logo appears

    2. You should see "macOS Utilities" screen, if not, repeat step (1).


    3. Close this window using the red button on the top left

    4. Click on "Choose Startup Disk..."


    5. Then select "Restart.."


    6. Lastly, select "Restart" again - you may see a spinning icon for a few minutes before rebooting.

    Even though I had the correct drivers, I switched startup disks then back. Same problem.

    Options recognizes the M705 but cannot get it to pair.

    This worked for me, when I ran the command in Terminal both software versions were .8 after doing the suggested restart both versions are showing as .9 adn my keyboard works.

    My M570 worked thru and after updating to Catalina but my K350 keyboard quit working. Both are working now. I do hope it stays that way!

    I'm sorry but I don't pay good money for a premium product only to spend hours going through forums to install/uninstall endlessly. This needs a proper fix now.

    This is definitely a driver issue.

    I went ahead and purged everything related to Options by searching and deleting in Library. It then worked! Of course, I couldn't customize it, but it was working.

    BUT on restart, the mouse had the same problem. Worked for 1 or 2 seconds and froze. The mouse should work without Options installed.

    So, I'm guessing those who get their products working by updating to the most recent drivers and then get it working by updating to 3.9.9 are having different problems than those with other products like the M705.

    Update: My M705 does not work in safe mode, so the issue is not Options software related. But my G602 gaming mouse, that uses a non-unifying dongle that is tied only to that mouse, works just fine.

    This is extreme expert black diamond skiing stuff that gets deep into the engine of your Mac. Not for the timid nor inexperienced and could kill your Mac. I will not be trying this.

    "Time for their engineers to step up their game."

    They haven't fixed the Double Click of Death problem in over a decade, so I'm not holding out much hope.

    So much difficulty. I am NOT going into the Terminal on my work Mac for fear of screwing things up. Its a good think this happened before I bought a new Master mouse for my home Mac. Not going any further with Logitech which is a bummer since I hate the Apple mouse. Also, Logitech says to install the new driver BEFORE installing Catalina. WTH?!?!?! How are we supposed to know that it was not going to work? F. Now Im even more pissed off.

    I created a user here just to post that this fixed the problem I was having with the K780 Keyboard and Catalina on a Mac Mini.

    After upgrading I was locked out of the Mini since the keyboard didn't work; I was able to log in with a Magic Keyboard (a loaner).

    Upgrading Logitech Control Center to 3.3.9 didn't fix the issue nor giving all the user permissions explained here:

    https://support.logi.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360023202814-Logitech-Control-Center-permission-prompts-on-macOS-Mojave

    The command above shows that Logitech Control Center wasn't upgraded properly. 

    Thanks LogiLaurie!!

    That is working only where there is a software glitch. Many of us simply can't get mice to work even without the software installed or in Safe mode, which should occur (even if basically).

    Right

    Just wanted to post my experience with the K780 Keyboard and Catalina

    My Logi M320 Mouse has worked fine without issues.

    I installed Steermouse, which is like a gauge on your car's dashboard, and not the Logitech "idiot light."

    It cannot see my M705. On the other hand, it IDs my G602 gaming mouse perfectly.

    Obviously a Logitech.Unifying.HIDDriver issue tied to the Mac OS, NOT anything we can install or troubleshoot.

    Both my M705 mouse and keyboard are not working. I'm freaking out because I have a paper due an REALLY need to use my computer. Why is Logitech not providing support?? I'm really regretting buying Logitech equipment... having such a critical outstanding issue for a week now is unacceptable. Why was this not fixed in the Catalina beta? And why were registered customers not notified? Big fail on part of Logitech. :-(

    Brandon,

    Go and buy a cheap wired mouse for the time being.

    They didn't fix this issue nor notify us because they were asleep at the switch.

    Aha, restarting to Recovery Mode worked.  I have a wired Logitech Wave keyboard (eg no Unifying kexts) and kextstat reported this before restart:

    107 0 0xffffff7f8252b000 0x47000 0x47000 com.Logitech.Control Center.HID Driver (3.9.8) no UUID <106 81 63 49 6 5 3>

    and now after:

    107 0 0xffffff7f8252b000 0x47000 0x47000 com.Logitech.ControlCenter.HIDDriver (3.9.9) BB513FDB-C9C7-3A6F-AD71-58CDD322B095 <106 81 49 25 6 5 3>

    For note, the keyboard and Logitech Control Center worked correctly the first boot into Catalina so I have no idea why that happened. Lastly, trying to manually unload the kext for the old 3.9.8 LCC errored:

    (kernel) Can't unload kext com.Logitech.Control Center.HID Driver; classes have instances:

    So, the only solution that worked was restarting to Recovery Mode.  My setup is slightly different than that shown by LogiLaurie as my drive is encrypted, but unlocking the drive in Recovery Mode was just one extra step and everything else behaved as expected.

    I have always had a problem where every time I reboot, my devices are not detected by LCC until I remove and plug the receiver back in, at which point my K750 and M570 will both show up.  They work ok without showing up, but I don't get any of the pointer acceleration or extra button settings on the mouse until the mouse is detected.

    After updating from LCC 3.9.8 to 3.9.9, now my devices are not detected at all even unplugging and replugging in the receiver.  I'd really like my pointer acceleration and mouse buttons back!

    It seems like it worked fine, both the drivers look ok... is there anywhere else to check?  I have updated the firmware on the unifying receiver already.
