I use two keypads (Koolertron AE-SMKD72 Type A), that I use as one split keyboard. But they are recognized as two separate keyboards, what causes some problems:
- I use an alternative keyboard layout but have a program running that maps keys back to QWERTZ when I press
Ctrlbecause I don't want to relearn shortcuts as
Ctrl-c. This program doesn't work when I press
Ctrlon the left and
uon the right keyboard.
- There is a bug in Gnome that causes the screen to freeze when typing quickly on two different keyboards.
- There is only one keyboard listed in
/dev/input/by-id(probably because they are named identically).
That's why I would prefer if Linux would consider both keyboards halves as a single keyboard.
Is it possible to merge two keyboards into a single input device? Or alternatively, is it possible to merge to USB ports into one in a way that the two devices appear to be only one?
