what wireless keyboards and 'mice' can be used with Mandriva?.
With Mandriva I have been using an old Dynex wireless keyboard and mouse but recently they has stopped working.
Can I simply get any other wireless keyboard and mouse or should I look for some specific brands?
Thank you

And welcome to LQ!

I'd say that what happens between the plug and the keyboard should
be operating system agnostic, but then I've never used one of those
so would take my comment with a grain of salt.

If you are using kde, you can go to the "Control Center", select "Regional and Accessibility", then select "Keyboard Layout", then "Enable keyboards layout". That will allow you to see a drop down list of supported keyboards. If you don't see your model, try selecting another keyboard model from the same manufacturer. You can , in some instances try selecting another manufacturer's layout.
