    Question Logitech G710+ M# and G# keys

    I've been trying for a few weeks to get my macro function keys on my new Logitech G710+ mechanical gaming keyboard to be recognized in Ubuntu 14.04. I've verified that they do work in Windows, so it's not a hardware malfunction. Currently the G# keys report as the number keys instead of their own keycodes, but the M# keys do not report at all.

    I've tried to install a driver made by Wattos (https://github.com/Wattos/logitech-g710-linux-driver) which several people have reported success with. I keep getting errors when trying to install the kernel modules, but the modules appear to be installed.

    Code:
    joe@U14:~/Hardware/G710/logitech-g710-linux-driver-master/src/kernel$ sudo make install[sudo] password for joe: 
    
    
    make -C /lib/modules/3.13.0-46-generic/build M=/home/joe/Hardware/G710/logitech-g710-linux-driver-master/src/kernel modules_install
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-46-generic'
      INSTALL /home/joe/Hardware/G710/logitech-g710-linux-driver-master/src/kernel/hid-lg-g710-plus.ko
    Can't read private key

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-46-generic'
    
    
    joe@U14:~/Hardware/G710/logitech-g710-linux-driver-master/src/kernel$

    Code:
    joe@U14:~$ grep -r g710 /lib/modules
    
    Binary file /lib/modules/3.13.0-44-generic/modules.alias.bin matches
    Binary file /lib/modules/3.13.0-44-generic/extra/hid-lg-g710-plus.ko matches

    /lib/modules/3.13.0-46-generic/modules.dep:kernel/drivers/hid/hid-lg-g710-plus.ko: kernel/drivers/hid/hid.ko
    But "lsmod | grep g710" comes up empty and not many HID devices show up either. (There should be more since I'm running a G600 gaming mouse that shows as 2 devices also.)

    Code:
    joe@U14:~$ lsmod | grep hid
    
    mac_hid                13205  0 
    hid_generic            12548  0 
    usbhid                 52659  0 
    hid                   106148  2 hid_generic,usbhid
    I'm at a loss at what to do next. Is the private key error preventing the drivers from being properly installed? If so, how do I resolve that issue?
    This is my first time going this deep into linux hardware programming, so newb-friendly answers would be much appreciated.
