    Wireless keyboard not working with Linux

    A couple of months ago I did buy on Ebay the wireless keyboard model BK3001 exactly as the one that shows in the following link, even the box is the same:

    The wireless mouse works perfectly with Windows, Apple and Linux.

    But the keyboard only works with Windows and Apple, but now that I've changed to Linux Ubuntu 12.04 I've found out that is not working with.

    Well... Only do work few keys but in very funny way. The “Delete”, “fn+F12” (volume up) and “fn+F11” (volume down) do work as intended. Now the funny bit: Pressing J writes 1, K = 2, L = 3, U = 4, I = 5, O = 6, 7 = 7, 8 = 8, 9 = 9, M = 0, 0 = /, - = =, ; = -, . = . and / = +. Any other keys do nothing at all.

    Is there any solution or should I buy another one that works with Linux (or so they say...)?

    What is wrong with a real Apple Mac wireless keyboard?

    Here's a link that describes key remapping if that helps at all: http://www.organicdesign.co.nz/Apple...board_on_Linux

    This one did cost me £16... The real Apple I can't afford it (I think...).

    I am living in the Incapacity Benefit so I am chasing bargains. That's all. I don't think that there is anything wrong wirh an Apple keyboard or a least I didn't hear any complain about it.

    Kind regards.
