OS X Mavericks has just been released, and tons of Mac users are flocking to the Mac App Store to download the latest version of OS X, especially now that it’s free. However, as with any new software, it is not compatible with everything. For example, Logitech’s software for peripherals doesn’t yet have full support for OS X Mavericks, but luckily you can run it.
Logitech’s Mac software comes in what it calls Control Center, a utility for configuring your Logitech mice and keyboard.

Not sure why this works and Logitech’s website states it’s not compatible with OS X Mavericks (OS X 10.6.x to 10.8.x only), but either way this workaround works great and you can keep your Logitech peripherals running smoothly. for use. We’re also not sure when Logitech will officially start supporting OS X Mavericks, but hopefully it won’t be long before we see full support.
