My site may help:
Be sure to block pop-ups (those are forced on me), and when there, click on Linux and the English flag on top.

Xorg and XFree86 both support many Multimedia/Internet keyboards.

If you use KDE just start up the Control Center and select:
Regional & Accessibility --> Keyboard Layout
Now put a check in the box:
[X] Enable keyboard layouts

Now you can use pull down menu:
Keyboard model:

And look at all the available keyboards.
