Keyboard Mouse not Recognized

Post#1 by johncstark » 06 Aug 2014, 20:10

I got a special usb kiosk keyboard/mouse device that is not being recognized by the Porteus Kiosk iso. The keyboard works in bios (and windows OS) but immediately stops working when booting to the Kiosk iso.

With a standard keyboard/mouse things work fine.

Am I looking at need to have a custom iso created?
Or, is there something I can do when installing to get things to work?

I only need the special kiosk keyboard to work after everything is installed on the system.

Build I'm Using
Porteus-Kiosk-3.1-i486.iso

hi johncstark,

i need to know exac model of this keyboard to be able to compile its support into kiosk kernel. please boot any live linux under which this keyboard is working and run following commands as root:

Code: Select all

lsmod >> /tmp/kiosk.txt
dmesg >> /tmp/kiosk.txt
once i get these details hopefully i'll be able to recognize your keyboard and add support for it to next kiosk release.

thanks

The keyboard and mouse work fine in Lubuntu.

File was too large to paste text into forum.

Here is a URL to the actual file.

i guess the keyboard is identified as:

Code: Select all

USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Operator Interface Technology, Inc. QVP01T] on usb-0000:00:1d.3-2/input0
and i think it's about this driver:

Code: Select all

mac_hid                13037  0 
which may be related to:

Code: Select all

joydev                 17097  0 
and they are missing in kiosk.

will try to search google how to enable 'mac_hid' in the kernel (i couldn't find an option for it, probably it depends on some other options) and add to next kiosk release which is scheduled for December.

if you need it working earlier then please contact me through commercial 'customized builds' service:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/builds.html
and i'll compile customized kernel for you (within a day or two) for previously negotiated price.

thanks
