    i have used a logitech wireless mouse on my Acer netbook with various distros of linux and it always just worked. mint, ubuntu , elementary, and a couple of others i cant recall. i think the chances of a logitech working with they Pyra should be high.

    I try the mouse this evening, it works whit the Adapter on the GPD Win, and maybe also whit Bluetooth, but I don’t had luck whit my Pandora,
    Neither whit the Adapter or whit Bluetooth,
    Maybe the Kernel is to old and the Adapter needs to much current
    It’s a bit sad but maybe it was to expect..

    I just tried an old Logitech M185 (mouse) and a new K400+ (leopard) with my Pandora, both worked fine through a powered hub to the 'big' USB port. Other combinations, connecting them directly, or through a passive adaptor to the mini USB port, didn't seem to work.

    I used my unpowered Hub, maybe tomorrow I will try my Anker Hub connected to the Powerbank..

    The Power for the Pandora is also a issue:
    My Cable ditnt fit in the Pandora Connector so maybe I need a PSP USB Cable..
    i also tryed a Mini USB Cable on the Mini USB Port of the Pandora , but it didn’t work..

    Because I expect the Pyra Release somewhere in the near future:

    I have long experience as a Pandora User, I know how to start Games, and learned other things by using it, (also how to open the bottonpart and fix the shoulderbuttons)
    I have the usual user experience whit the Pandora,
    I can’t code and the terminal is only usuable for me if I can copy and paste a script,

    Will this experience be enough to use the Pyra??

    If you're happy with the Pandora for usability, then the Pyra won't be any different. If anything, it will be likely be simpler... at least once they have any software glitches fixed.

    Well I can live whit some starting issues,
    When I got my Pandora, not even the Powersaving Funktion where implementet
    And i will get (hopefully) a pretty early MP Pyra,
    For a MP, the 28th Pyra is close to nothing..

    Yes, I've not seen anything equivalent to PND Manager yet, although it's perfectly possible I've not been paying proper attention. Assuming that doesn't exist, we'll need to use web browsers and the file manager to install things to our SD cards manually, but having to resort to the terminal is probably beyond what most of us will need to do.
