Wireless Keyboard and Mouse


I'm planning on going to Walmart, or wherever, and buying a wireless keyboard and mouse for a Linux machine. Do I need to look into whether the product is linux-compatible? Or is it generally the case that they all work with Linux and compatibility isn't an issue?

In the main they all work. What might be an issue is using the extra functions on the keyboard or mouse. Make sure you have legacy usb enabled in your bios.
