Also, you could try unplugging the keyboard, waiting a few seconds, and then plugging it in again to see if it is recognised then. I hate USB!
It seems to me that as a linux users you would! In windows usb is fantastic! Even from an unbiased perspective.
I'll look into hotplug... sounds like an app that allows dynamic interface with usb or something might mean i can just unplug and replug otherwise though i've tried already.
I can't get rid of the keyboard cos my sister likes to use it in windows its got all the media player buttons... i don't mind it either, i honestly thought an operating system like linux would have no trouble adapting to it
