Basic Question About Keyboards [Solved]

Postby larry77 » 2016-11-09 21:57

Dear All,
Due to space constraints on my cluttered desk, I would like to buy a smaller (fewer keys) keyboard.
In particular, I would like to give a shot to some cheap mechanical keyboard such as

http://amzn.to/2fDdKAG

My question is the following: will I experience any problem with this "short" keyboard in Debian, or should I expect it to be plug and play?
Seen that my place is a sort of Babel when it comes to languages, can I deploy also a layout different from the British / America one on this keyboard?
To be fair, I expect the answers to my questions to be some solid yes, but...better be on the safe side.
Cheers

You might get a solid answer to your questions by following the link on the product page which says "Sold by VicTop and Fulfilled by Amazon." then looking for the "Contact the seller" link. :shock:

You really expect a seller to know anything about Debian or Linux in general?

You really expect this question to be answered without first asking the seller?

If so... how about asking Santa Claus? :wink:

Ironically, the seller has already answered the question of Linux compatibility for this specific keyboard, rendering this entire thread totally pointless. Requiring nothing more demanding than a mouse click, said answer took <20 seconds to find, and didn't even require a quick trip to Google.

The root problem here is that the OP has a long history of refusing to do even simple things like mouse-clicks to answer his questions. He would much rather waste others' time by posting pointless forum threads.

Since the OP can't be bothered to so much as click a link to get an answer to his current question, it seems totally pointless to post a second link to the exact same answer.

Ollallà somebody is getting resentful.
Only after I asked on amazon, the seller published this info.
In any case, point taken that I should have started by asking the seller.
