Is Kit a brand name. I can't find what you are talking about because kit is such a common term it is gets lost in other results. Could you supply a link?

I wouldn't recommend a wireless keyboard. They tend to have weak security. If the security can be broken on a wireless keyboard, you have yourself a fancy wireless keylogger.

Kit is not a brand name. kit = keyboard + mouse.
I want to buy keyboard and mouse wireless. I use them on home. So no problems with the security.

I use one of the Logitec wireless keyboard/mouse combos. Not sure which one, but totally problem free.

If it has a usb transceiver, you shouldn't have any problem. It will operate just like a usb mouse and keyboard. It's simply another HID device.

First my keyboard is set to the layout US International , choice it during installation.
Then all the keys met the description on it
For instance at the top of the keyboard numeric 2 is two
If use numeric 2 at the top of the keyboard and shift I get @
Same goes for all the other function keys

If you used this kit http://pcalien.ro/index.php?main_pag...roducts_id=574 you see some special keys like "play" etc on the top of keyboard. How you use this on linux ?

Linux is about 200 distros so it depends somewhat on the distro you use
For instance to make the sound louder, softer sound stop the sound if you
choice as master channel front it is enough to do the trick , sometimes not.
So giving a general answer is difficult
