    Rosewill RIKB-11003 Gaming Keyboard

    I purchased a Rosewill RIKB-11003 Gaming Keyboard with Programmable Keys from Ebay.

    It works fine in Grub and in my BIOS.

    In LinuxMint Maya 13 using kernel 3.2.0-39-generic #62-Ubuntu SMP I get

    $ lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04d9:a055 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc.

    $ lsusb -v
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04d9:a055 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc.
    Couldn't open device, some information will be missing.......

    There's not much about getting this keyboard working in Linux on the web but after much searching and trial and error this is what works

    Ubuntu 13.04 (dev) using 3.8.0-17-generic
    Kanotix using kernel 3.8.2-2-486....

    Not working
    Ubuntu 12.04 using kernel 3.2.0
    Ubuntu 12.10 using kernel 3.5.0

    In short the older kernels do not support the Rosewill RIKB-11003 keyboard so if your new to GNU/Linux Ubuntu LinuxMint I would recommend waiting a bit and upgrading to Ubuntu 13.04 when it comes out later this month.
