I have been thinking of buying an ergo keyboard for coding and stuff. But confused if microsoft keyboards would work.

  • Keyboards work fine, the problem are mice. If you want to use a Microsoft mouse you'll probably have to install resetmsmice to get it working properly, you can find it on github (you have to build it from source though). – dsSTORM May 15 '18 at 15:34
  • For what it's worth, I've never had a problem getting and USB or PS2 keyboard or mouse working under Ubuntu. I was under the impression that resetmsmice was only needed for certain wireless versions and even then only if you were dual booting windows. @dsSTORM – Elder Geek Oct 25 '18 at 23:59

I'm typing this from a sculpt split keyboard. It has worked well for the last 1.5 years or so that i've had it. Recently, my update to 18.04 broke some of my specialty keys (snap window to left half of screen, etc), but other than that, it's been working perfectly.
