It means use titles to threads that mean something and give readers some clue as to what you are looking for help with.

It also means spend a bit of time thinking about your question and framing it in a way that gives the reader a sporting chance of working out what you are on about and therefore helping. A bit of basic punctuation would be a start, and yes that includes using your shift key more than once.

Things to include in your post:
1)what distro you are using, since many distros have different ways to configure things.
2) for hardware questions, the output of "lspci -v" and "lsmod" are very helpful. lspci will list all your harware devices, and lsmod will list the drivers that have been loaded.
3) You could go to and do a search for the model of the keyboard along with your distro as a start. Or search the LQ forums for the name of your keyboard.
4) A thread title like "how to get keyboard xyz recognized in your_distro" would be good also.

See here, you may realize why your rudeness is being met w/ such a cold response. (Isn't it wonderful to quote yourself. :))

To amplify: You're (notice correct homonym) asking us to help you, be polite & respectful of us & our time.

Seriously, did you <rude participle deleted> read the references Bruce gave you?

In addition to the shift key, learn about the apostrophe, " ' ", and homonyms:

especially the set:

its: belonging to it (analogous to my, your, his, her, our, their)
it's: contraction for "it is" (analogous to I'm, you're, he's, she's, we're, they're) or "it has" (analogous to I've, you've, he's, she's, we've, they've)
Filling in a complete profile would also help.

OMG, this is also effectively a double post -- it's the same Q as
I'll let someone explain why that's a no-no. Add patience to your list plus an understanding of the LQ process, especially why it can take a while for people to see, consider, & finally answer your Q.

Which is it:
not getting the model right is pretty sloppy (see Raymond & Moen, for the implications of that). Providing a link to the mfr's info is helpful & polite.
