Getting the mousepad working

To get the Mousepad working, edit /etc/modprobe.d/options and add the following line:

options usbhid quirks=0x046d:0xc71f:0x00080000

For 7.10

options usbhid quirks=0x046d:0xc71f:0x00020000

seems to work better than the 0x00080000 quirk.


update-initramfs -u

reboot or rmmod usbhid and modprobe usbhid.

The update-initramfs isn't necessary when manually modprobing the module.

Since the usbhid driver loads from initramfs, unless you update it, it will not see it.

Media buttons

The Media buttons work out of the box :)

The Home key on the DiNovo (under right) can be set to generate F7 (main menu) The Windows key (left middle) can be set to generate F8 (sound/lighting)

by editing the xfree86 file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes if you are using the following setup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier     "Keyboard0"
   Driver         "keyboard" 
   Option         "XkbLayout" "us"
   Option         "XkbVariant" "basic"
   Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"  

If this is the case then you can change the first part of the file to resemble the below:

default xkb_keycodes "xfree86" {
   include "xfree86(basic)"
   <BKSL> =  51;
   <LSGT> =  94;
   <FK07> =  97; // Home key on the DiNovo (under right) to act as F7 (main menu)
   <FK08> =  115; // Windows key (left middle) to act as F8 (sound/lighting)
