How to support on Linux

Post by bbaker » Tue Jul 12, 2022 1:13 pm

I'm looking at support in Linux of devices with function keys and LCD's. A great starting point for the LCD support is as a variation of the G15 keyboard and Z-10 speaker code. This code is found in various places, including lcdproc. In Windows, the Logitech LCD Manager used to control this interface supports both the G15 and other keyboards with LCD's -- leading me to believe that aside from monochrome/color issues, these devices are very similar. Another similarity with the G15 and Z-10 speakers is the function keys. There is an existing driver in the kernel for the G15 and Z-10 function keys, and full support might not be a lot more difficult than adding the USB vendor ID's.
