I've just tried running Linux Mint 5 R1 through the live cd (haven't installed it on my HDD yet). Overall, I must say that I'm fairly fascinated by this distro and am dying to install it on my machine. There's, however, one problem: I don't seem to be able to use the shortcut keys and multimedia controls of my keyboard (Logitech Cordless Elite, which is part of the Logitech Cordless MX Duo package). I've tried changing keyboard layout setting to all of the available Logitech products listed there to no avail, although some options do seem to make the mute key and volume control work. But still, that's currently the furthest I can get with my limited Linux skills.
Both the mouse and keyboard are connected directly to the respective PS/2 ports (no adapters/converters involved).
Can anyone shed some light on how to get those shortcut keys and multimedia controls of my keyboard fully operational under Mint 5? I'm desperately in need of some assistance.
P.S.: In case it's required, some pictures of the MX Duo package are available here: http://www.tweaknews.net/reviews/mxduo/index2.php
