I have found the source for a "patch" for this here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachme...14&action=edit but i have no idea how to use it. the model number is a KU-9985. it is manufactured by dell. as a side note the keyboard has two usb ports built in (that i would normally use for my mouse). i don't know if this may be a part of the issue or not. i tried fedora 16 first (and to be honest, liked it better) but the exact same thing happened....nothing. nothing at all happens when i plug in my keyboard. any ideas?
