Logitech BT Mini-Receiver on Debian 6

I had a Logitech MX 5500 bluetooth mouse and keyboard that unfortunately broke. They came with a small USB dongle that can be used as a bluetooth receiver. It took me forever to figure out why the device wasn't registering as a bluetooth receiver on Debian Linux 6.0. Ultimately, the issue was with the udev rules.

In /lib/udev/rules.d/70-hid2hci.rules, I changed these lines:

KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c70[4abc]|c71[34bc]", \
  RUN+="hid2hci --method=logitech-hid --devpath=%p"

to:

KERNEL=="hiddev*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c70[4abc]|c71[34bc]", \
  RUN+="hid2hci --method=logitech-hid --devpath=%p"
