Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / input / keyboard


Input core configuration

INPUT_KEYBOARD

    • (on/off) Keyboards if EMBEDDED || !X86
    • default y
      Say Y here, and a list of supported keyboards will be displayed. This option doesn't affect the kernel.
      If unsure, say Y.

INPUT_KEYBOARD


  • Option: KEYBOARD_ATKBD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) AT keyboard if !X86_PC
    • default y
    • select SERIO
    • select SERIO_LIBPS2
    • select SERIO_I8042 if X86_PC
    • select SERIO_GSCPS2 if GSC
      Say Y here if you want to use a standard AT or PS/2 keyboard. Usually you'll need this, unless you have a different type keyboard (USB, ADB or other). This also works for AT and PS/2 keyboards connected over a PS/2 to serial converter.
      If unsure, say Y.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called atkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_ATKBD_HP_KEYCODES
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Use HP keyboard scancodes
    • depends on PARISC && KEYBOARD_ATKBD
    • default y
      Say Y here if you have a PA-RISC machine and want to use an AT or PS/2 keyboard, and your keyboard uses keycodes that are specific to PA-RISC keyboards.
      Say N if you use a standard keyboard.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_ATKBD_RDI_KEYCODES
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Use PrecisionBook keyboard scancodes
    • depends on KEYBOARD_ATKBD_HP_KEYCODES
    • default n
      If you have an RDI PrecisionBook, say Y here if you want to use its built-in keyboard (as opposed to an external keyboard).
      The PrecisionBook has five keys that conflict with those used by most AT and PS/2 keyboards. These are as follows:
      PrecisionBook Standard AT or PS/2
      F1 F12 Left Ctrl Left Alt Caps Lock Left Ctrl Right Ctrl Caps Lock Left 102nd key (the key to the right of Left Shift)
      If you say N here, and use the PrecisionBook keyboard, then each key in the left-hand column will be interpreted as the corresponding key in the right-hand column.
      If you say Y here, and use an external keyboard, then each key in the right-hand column will be interpreted as the key shown in the left-hand column.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_SUNKBD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Sun Type 4 and Type 5 keyboard
    • select SERIO
      Say Y here if you want to use a Sun Type 4 or Type 5 keyboard, connected either to the Sun keyboard connector or to an serial (RS-232) port via a simple adapter.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sunkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_LKKBD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) DECstation/VAXstation LK201/LK401 keyboard
    • select SERIO
      Say Y here if you want to use a LK201 or LK401 style serial keyboard. This keyboard is also usable on PCs if you attach it with the inputattach program. The connector pinout is described within lkkbd.c.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called lkkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_LOCOMO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) LoCoMo Keyboard Support
    • depends on SHARP_LOCOMO && INPUT_KEYBOARD
      Say Y here if you are running Linux on a Sharp Zaurus Collie or Poodle based PDA
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called locomokbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_XTKBD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) XT keyboard
    • select SERIO
      Say Y here if you want to use the old IBM PC/XT keyboard (or compatible) on your system. This is only possible with a parallel port keyboard adapter, you cannot connect it to the keyboard port on a PC that runs Linux.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called xtkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_NEWTON
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Newton keyboard
    • select SERIO
      Say Y here if you have a Newton keyboard on a serial port.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called newtonkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_CORGI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Corgi keyboard
    • depends on PXA_SHARPSL
    • default y
      Say Y here to enable the keyboard on the Sharp Zaurus SL-C7xx series of PDAs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called corgikbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_SPITZ
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Spitz keyboard
    • depends on PXA_SHARPSL
    • default y
      Say Y here to enable the keyboard on the Sharp Zaurus SL-C1000, SL-C3000 and Sl-C3100 series of PDAs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called spitzkbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_MAPLE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Maple bus keyboard
    • depends on SH_DREAMCAST && MAPLE
      Say Y here if you have a DreamCast console running Linux and have a keyboard attached to its Maple bus.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called maple_keyb.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_AMIGA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Amiga keyboard
    • depends on AMIGA
      Say Y here if you are running Linux on any AMIGA and have a keyboard attached.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called amikbd.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_HIL_OLD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) HP HIL keyboard support (simple driver)
    • depends on GSC
    • default y
      The "Human Interface Loop" is an older, 8-channel USB-like controller used in several Hewlett Packard models. This driver was adapted from the one written for m68k/hp300, and implements support for a keyboard attached to the HIL port, but not for any other types of HIL input devices like mice or tablets. However, it has been thoroughly tested and is stable.
      If you want full HIL support including support for multiple keyboards, mices and tablets, you have to enable the HP System Device Controller i8042 Support in the input/serio submenu.


  • Option: KEYBOARD_HIL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) HP HIL keyboard support
    • depends on GSC
    • default y
    • select HP_SDC
    • select HIL_MLC
    • select SERIO
      The "Human Interface Loop" is an older, 8-channel USB-like controller used in several Hewlett Packard models. This driver implements support for HIL-keyboards attached to your machine, so normally you should say Y here.
