Xorg 6.9 and G15 keyboard

Postby daedalus » Mon May 01, 2006 6:25 pm

Hi all,

Recently I bought a Logitech G15 keyboard and would use it under by Debian 2.6.15 and Xorg 6.9, but many keys are dead. I don't mean G or multimedias one, they work. But my '< >' key. Here's my xorg.conf extract :

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "fr"
EndSection

I know there is a 'g15lcd' modules but it needs a kernel compiled with uinput support. I didn't succeed compiling a 2.6.16 and I would know if there's a way making this key to work without this module ?

Just as a matter of interest, are you sure the debian kernel is not already compiled with uinput support? In the default SuSE kernel config, I notice:
CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT=m
not necessarily a guide to debian I understand, but worth checking.
Bye, Rhakios

Yeah, because when I try to run g15lcd, it says my kernel hasn't it.

It is possible that it was compiled as a module that has not yet been loaded.
Code: Select all
zgrep UINPUT /proc/config.gz

will tell you if it was configured as a module or not at all.
[modprobe -v uinput[/code] will load it for you.
