I recently picked up a Razer Orbweaver which works pretty well with my windows installation through the Razer Synapse software. While I can't switch between profiles in Linux, the corresponding keys that Linux detects to a specific physical key is the same regardless of the profile the keypad is on. Unlike a Blackwidow, from what I can tell all (or most) of the keys work, and there's no need for any joojoo. However the fixed key-map results in a dilemma if I wanted to use it the same way I would in windows
Is there some way I can map specific keys on the keypad (for example W for Ctrl-C), so that I can use the Orbweaver to trigger off macros (but not on another keyboard on the same system? IIRC xbindkeys is system wide, and I need it to a specific device.
I'm using Ubuntu 13.04, but I'm doubtful that this is distro specific. As with my blackwidow question, I would be willing to test anything that makes sense on a Linux system if I have detailed instructions - however anyone can replicate this with a second keyboard, since thats what this is in effect.
