Keyboards...

Sun Dec 16, 2012 1:29 pm

Hi,
Got my RaspberryPi but not got round to firing it up yet!
I have an ATI 'Remote Wonder' for my PC, and it has the ability to be used as a mouse and keypad. Would it work with my RaspberryPi? I'm guessing perhaps I might need to look for some drivers online?
Cheers

I've had a few like this, bluetooth ones. They worked ok without drivers for me. but obviously each one is different.

I have a iPazzPort wireless keyboard, i have not set it up with the pi yet as i just unboxed it today, however it works perfectly without any special drivers on my xubuntu linux laptop and my eeePc 701, it has a miniature thumb keyboard and a touchpad mouse on one device, weird name great device. i think i paid 15 bucks for it

i'm quite interested in this subject as well. i will have my Pi in a place where i want minimal peripheral devices. therefore, rather than a powered USB hub, i'd rather a keyboard/mouse combo with a USB dongle in one USB port (allowing me to save the other USB port for a WiFi dongle.

it's going to be in installed in a kitchen, primarily used for looking up recipes. so a touchpad would be acceptable, as well as a smaller keyboard. as always, the cheaper, the better...i'd be interested in how your iPazzPort wireless keyboard ($15 looks like a deal for that) works out, as well as any other suggestions.

thanks!
