comment How to remap keys under Linux for a specific keyboard only
If you don't want to use xmodmap, what you're asking seems to be too specific for my knowledge to help you sorry. The method I proposed would use xmodmap to swap the keycodes for those keys for all devices, for the duration your specific keyboard is attached, and then put it back. Are you expecting to be using multiple keyboards simultaneously?

I suspect you could do this with udev by matching the serial number of the keyboard and then calling a script which does the remapping. You'd probably need a similar script to be called on detach for the device to put it back.

comment Allow to read and delete but not create files in linux directory?
This is a log file directory so we wanted to allow the user to manually clear it out but not to be able to modify the logs - looks like either deleting the oldest automatically or trusting the user to not screw the files up is the answer then. :)

Glad you got it sorted, sorry if I led you down a linux-specific rabbit hole :) You can post that as an answer, it will let you accept it after a day or so I believe.

If you have access to a windows machine, I've found www.izarc.org/ to be good for dealing with corrupted archives. Not sure what is available for Macs.
