thanks, but this is a dead end. That quirk presumes that your multimedia keys produce some events in either xev or dmesg or at least "sometimes work using extra software like tpd and lineakd". Well, I repeat my keys produce no output neither xev nor dmesg. Lineakd again relies on xev output so the circle closes, and I was not able to find that tpd software but I assume this is something for Lenovo Thinkpad laptops so not applicable for my Microsoft keyboard.

This keyboard used to work just perfectly in F8 with kbd driver and I still believe it is possible to make it work with evdev.




ok, a little bit more research reveals that all my problems are because of the kernel bug http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11759 which is a result of some improvement. This resulted in a bunch of people with broken keyboards . There's a temporary patch turning off that improvement, but you need to recompile the kernel module and no permanent solution exists so far.

I'm running F9 x86_64 and F10 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
