Hi all, i have a new keyboard and mouse, Genius ErgoMedia 800, with some "programmable" keys, the use a software, and a driver i think (i dont have windows to try..)
the problem is that these keys dont work, even if i cat /dev/input....
do u know of any driver for linux o any software so i can look at the init sequence on windows?
my old "TwinToch LuxeMate pro" has the same problem, but the programmable key is only one...
i also tryed dmesg and there are no messages.
the lsusb output is:

Run the command ' xev ' and see if they generate keycodes when the key is pressed. If so then write down the keycode it produces and the key it is used for. Many ways of making keys work but may depend on gui using. A good tool for keys like these is xbindkeys.
Genius makes weird peripherals, my Genius mouse does this too, and I've tried many things. I think indeed, someone will have to write a driver for them ... as soon as someone figures out how they work.
