The Genius SlimStar 8000 has caught my eye for use with my new HTPC. However, I can't get an answer out of Google if it works with Ubuntu (or Linux for that matter).

The reviews over at Amazon indicate that it works with Mac, so that is a good sign. Has anyone tried this keyboard successfully? Failing that, where else can I look?

I really just want basic keyboard functionality, multimedia keys are a nice to have.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Oyibo Jan 1 '13 at 7:45
