    Florian Woitzel I am having similar issues but a slightly different setup with my MX Keys. I have a bare-metal ESXI server setup with multiple VMs on it. I am using a Macbook Pro Late 2019 edition and I have my MX Keys connected to my MBP via Bluetooth and it works great, I can install Logitech Options, everything works perfectly. Couldn't be happier with the product. However, when I open up a VM in console mode which is just the desktop through a web browser, I cannot use the Super key to work with anything. I have also set up xrdp and xrdp-sesman on various Linux distros, like Ubuntu 21.04, Debian 11, ArchLinux, Manjaro, as well as Artix Linux and I still cannot get the Super key to work properly. I can install a package on Arch, Manjaro and Artix called xorg-xev and when I run the following command, I can see that the computer is picking up that the cmd/alt key on the left is Super Left.

    xev | awk -F'[ )]+' '/^KeyPress/ { a[NR+2] } NR in a { printf "%-3s %s\n", $5, $8 }'

    But if I install any tiling window manager on Linux, the Super key does not work. VMWare tools is installed on each machine as well. I cannot find anywhere on the web where it indicates what keyboard layout or variant to use so that I can manually configure my ~/.Xmodmap on my machines so that I can use this option. I have chosen the PC-105 keyboard option which I know is not correct. I just wish Logitech would at least define a setxkbmap layout or variant that would allow this to work or even a logiops.cfg file which works on Linux is an example file on how to configure a Logitech device for Linux using logiops package. The only thing I can find online about that configuration, is configuration examples for the Master MX 3 mouse which clearly won't work. I don't need Logitech to support Linux persay, I just need the keyboard layout of various .cfg/.conf files that would work for the MX Keys layout so that I can do it manually. The MX Keys does work in Linux, but a number of features are limited.

    You might also want to check out solaar on GitHub, it might help you with the issue you are having.

    Hi Bryan,

    Thanks for reaching out. 

    I would like to inform you that options software is not compatible with Linux but you can use the keyboard linux, the F button cannot be customized for Linux.

    In case if you need any additional support, please write back to us.
