Check the HCL section here for the BENQ since not mention model number. It might be there. As far as the keyboard what do you want to do with it. Does it work or do you want to setup the extra keys if it has them. Need model number for it as well and what you want to do exactly.

I know there is a file to setup the extra keys for these types of keyboards but can not find the link. Search here and on google for that for setup multimedia keys on keyboards.

Here are some links related.

A better choice is this one. http://freshmeat.net/projects/xbindkeys/

Do not know what kooka is so can't help there.

Are you using gnome? If so, use gconf-editor. I can give more instructions if you are using gnome.
