I might install elementaryOS in my PC to replace Windows OS. If I do, will it support my Windows Keyboard?

  • What do you mean by "elementary OS"? – ChrisInEdmonton Sep 1 '15 at 13:30
  • elementary OS is a OS that runs Linux/Ubuntu, and so I was interesting by it... – Hydroper Sep 1 '15 at 13:33
  • All Windows keyboards are at least your standard 102 key keyboard. If Elementary OS supports the standard keyboard then it will work. – Ramhound Sep 1 '15 at 13:35
  • For example, 32 (spacebar key) == space? – Hydroper Sep 1 '15 at 13:38

As other linux distros, your keyboard will most certainly work if it's not a very special one. If it doesnt, search for drivers online.

  • Hey, thanks for the answer. If I need have to search for drivers online, I will need a mouse for the OS, right? Or the mouse of the Windows will be supported by the own OS? – Hydroper Sep 1 '15 at 13:22
  • Just like the keyboard there is a very low chance that the mouse wont work, but as I said that is very rare. If the mouse by some reason dont work, try another one (regular connected with USB). – Berg Sep 1 '15 at 13:25
  • Hm, maybe the Ubuntu installer has a option to configure somethings. Okay, I'll try when the download be finallyzing. Thanks. – Hydroper Sep 1 '15 at 13:33
