I can't even select the keyboard layout, but it is included xorg.xml. Or did the files move to a different place? I had edited the files in /etc/X11.

With new X.orgR7, my /etc/X11/xkb was a dead link....

I've found the files to be modified in /usr/share/X11/xkb.
Follow the how-to provided (http://linux.yes.nu/diNovo/) to modify these files. There are some minor change, but nothing difficult (some lines don't exist anymore, so no change required).

and tadaaa ! My extra keys work again !

Thank you for your answer. I edited the files in /usr/shaer/X11/skb and changed the symlink /etc/X11/xkb to that folder. Now I can select the Keyboard Layout in my KDE Control Center, but the extra keys are not working :(

Any idea? Did you change something else?

Hey all,

I use the logi cordless elite w/ bt. Not as fancy as the dinuvo but, it works well enough for me. I use the patch from the bluez site but am wondering what is the bluez-kernel ebuild about ? What is it used for ? I am wondering if there is an all portage solution so that I won't have to spend time patching vanilla kernels. Anyone have an idea ?

Greetings all.

Just to mention for people using non-vanilla or -gentoo kernels... I found that over the last few kernel releases I used (ck-sources and - lately - mm-sources), certainly for the 2.6.16 and 2.6.17 releases, the source didn't require the patch for my bluetooth to work (maybe those patchsets already having the bluez stuff incorporated)... 8)

And you are using some flavor of logitech BT keyboards ? That'd be pretty f'ing hot if this is the case.

[edit] somehow i bet you are just registereing with the Boot proto. If so, then none of the multimedia keys prolly work.

Are you using the patch from the bluez site ? They currently only have one for 2.6.15 kernels.

Also, have you tried using xev to check that the keys are not really working ? And by working I mean that they are actually sending key code events when used.

http://www.bluez.org/patches.html

You should notice that without this patch, when the bluetooth system gets init'd that the kernel will report keyboard and mice as boot proto. With the patch, your keyboard and mouse as Logitech proto. (At least for me, I use the cordless elite setup).

And what about the patch from bluez ? Have you tried that just to see if it'd help ?

No I don't have tried it. My keyboard worked perfectly with xorg 6.9. Or do you think something has changed with kernel 2.6.16?

I have been using my kdeyboards since early 2.6 and the extra multimedia keys NEVER worked for me without the bluez patch. I have tried using a 2.6.16 without the bluez patch and my extra keys did NOT work. I am currently running a 2.6.15 kernel with the bluez patch and all my keys are working fine. I am running xorg7.0 with the patch and my keyboards work just as they did in older Xorg.

I don't know what all has changed btwn old and new Xorg but all I can say is TITS (Try It To See).

It is time for me to get ready for work but here are the relevant parts of my xorg.conf.


Code:

# **********************************************************************
# Input devices
# **********************************************************************

# **********************************************************************
# Core keyboard's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Keyboard1"
    Driver      "kbd"
    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
    Option "XkbRules"   "xorg"
    Option "XkbModel"   "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout"  "en_US"
    Option "XkbVariant" "Logitech Cordless Elite Keyboard"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "Auto" # Auto detect
    Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5 6 7"
EndSection



Like I said before, TITS.

One more question for you ? You say how your mm keys worked before but not now, where you using bluetooth before ? Becuase these kb's can do either IR or BT, but not both at the same time. If you were using IR before, that would explain why your mm keys worked with now bluez kernel patch.

Does anyone know how to crete the pathches. It allways takes quite a while until the patch for a new kernel appears on bluez.org...
Ok - One way would to mail the maintainer, but it has to been in the git-repositories.
I installed cognito and pulled the bluez-kernel but I can't make much sense out of git. I can easily live with not updating to 2.6.16, so I give up. But may be someone with more knowledge of git, kernel-pathes or both wants to give it a try....
