Well it should work under ugen. So as long as that is loaded, which is
by defualt, you are cool.
The harder part is getting it to play nicely with X. There is of how
to map around the KB IO. Custom keymap? There is usbhidaction, but it
does not meet the needs for gaming, just remotes and the like. There
is usbhidctl, but I am lost on it.
