usb keyboard problems

Post by thebucketmouse » Sun Jan 23, 2005 5:13 pm

I have Xebian on my xbox now, and my USB keyboard will not work at all. Is this a problem with Xebian, a driver I need, or will it work with GentooX?

Hi,

according to xbox-linux documentation usb keyboards work. But I havent heard of playstation usb keyboard being compatible. You would need to do a google on it and see if you can find something. .

hi,

look up this place..
http://www.xbox-linux.org/Fr/FAQ#How_do ... a_mouse.3F

All standard usb keyboards would work. You can also search playstation sites to see whether you need to install a specific driver for it.

hope that helps
