Hi hammadbw,

Welcome to LQ!

Did you want me to just take a guess? It would be impossible for anyone to answer your question correctly given only the information in your post. But I would guess: usb_hid.

In here. I find that some devices tend to show up in more than one place. https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux...ree/?h=v4.12.7

Recommend you check with your instructor. While we are willing to help with homework, it seems very clear that you are in a situation where you do not have the proper understanding to even communicate your problem. Asking others to provide a full answer to your very unclear, and also open-ended question is not the correct choice here. You, yourself can download the kernel source, especially since you have noted the kernel.org site, and perform a search for the word "keyboard". From there you can discern sub-directories where the drivers are located, you can learn where the kernel loads a driver for that input device, and you can learn what exact files are relevant.

Further, this is either a very introductory class or an advanced class.

If it is introductory, then your instructor likely has given obvious hints from references provided, or literally mentioned these details in class, but also more likely is that they are looking for a general answer, such as the sub-directory under the drivers portion of the source which likely deals with the keyboard. And given all that, they will be forgiving, if you just put forth some sort of attempt for them.

If it is an advanced class. You seem to have demonstrated a reluctance with reading code, but a knowledge of where the code is located at. Perhaps you should not be taking an advanced class if you are unwilling to put forth more effort.

Do you have a working Linux system? If so, type:
Code:
$ locate keyboard | grep '\/lib\/modules'
