Microsoft keyboards


I have one of those keyboards that has loads of extra buttons on it, and I have managed to install it along with Lineak to handle the key presses for most of the buttons; however some of them don't seem to do anything when I press them and don't want to register when I test them in xev.

I think the problem is something to do with the configuration in the xorg.conf file, but I am not sure what to change it to. I am using a Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite Keyboard, and the contents of the xorg.conf file are below:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "gb"

I tried setting the driver to Microsoft, just to see if that would work, but it ended up making my machine unbootable (which took me a while to learn how to fix!) so I am at a total loss as to how to get the remaining few buttons to work...

Ideas anyone?
