Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

If they're 'standard' keyboards they should work fine. Most peripherals like those obey the HCI standards, so I'd be very surprised if they didn't work. There *MIGHT* be some special keys (volume controls and the like) that may not work right off the bat, but you'd probably be able to make all of them work easily if they don't.

yap. i did buy QUE KBQ2200-BT and QUE KBQ1800 yesterday. and actually the volume control works. but the other function keys dont. can some one remind me how to do it ?
the last time i gotten a new keyboard and had to configure function keys was 7 years ago.

Well, you don't tell us what version/distro of Linux you're using, with what desktop environment. Both Gnome and KDE have control-center pieces to map keys for different things, and you could use xev to see what the keypress event is, then add it to your xconfiguration.
