I'm trying to use an universal camera keyboard for our application. I followed installation guide and ubuntu is now able to see the device. All i need is a sample software to test the device.

To see what kind of keyboard i'm using, you can check out its online guide.

The device manual has a typo. Where it says 7.5.5 Functional testing with Windows environment it should say Linux instead of Windows.

I think you could test the device according to the manual:

Launch the application on the terminal and request
the /dev/ttyACM0 device.
Type in [Buzzer+] to activate the buzzer, type
[Buzzer-] to deactivate it. If the buzzer enables
and disables the keyboard it has been recognized
and is operating correctly.

Hi, Thanks for reply :) i cannot get into dev directory by cd command. How can i call /dev/ttyACM0 ? – Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Jan 28 '13 at 13:28
Hi again, i'm now able to get in dev folder. but i still cannot run the ttyACM0. – Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Jan 28 '13 at 14:01
I think you need to launch the device application, on the terminal, and from that application request the /dev/ttyACM0 device. – ThiagoPonte Jan 28 '13 at 19:52
Hi, the thing is we haven't developed device application yet :) If you know any open source alternative can you suggest a good one for me? – Timur Aykut YILDIRIM Jan 29 '13 at 9:08
Sorry, i only downloaded the manual and took a look. – ThiagoPonte Jan 29 '13 at 13:19
