Ubuntu: Ubuntu 15.10 does not recognize Gamdias Hermes keyboard


This is a great mechanical keyboard. Well laid out, well constructed, works well in windows. All the settings are stored in the keyboard so you dont need the software running to use it. But it does not work in linux. AT ALL. Completely unresponsive.

Is there any way to edit the config file in ubuntu to get it to recognize this peripheral?


I was able to get my Gamdias Hermes Keyboard to work on my Linux desktop which is using Ubuntu Mate but I believe it will work will all forms of Linux distributions. I Want to make an application to run at startup to get it to work but I am personally unable to make it. But the fix I was able to find is.

Sudo cat /dev/usb/hiddev#  

You also need to press some keys on the keyboard to make sure it is the keyboard but if it is it will

This will require you to use a separate keyboard or mouse and a few tries to figure out the number of the keyboard but in all it has worked for me every time I find the right file.

You will need to do this command at every boot

Good Luck
