One of the sacrifices some of us make when moving from Windows to Linux is losing some of the functionality of our Internet keyboards because they were made to work with Windows drivers. But the LinEak Project is working to correct that. At their page you can download a tool that may allow you to regain some of the functionality of your internet keyboard. If your keyboard isn't yet supported you can supply them with information so they can start working on it. Here's the link: http://lineak.sourceforge.net/ .
