I recently bought a new keyboard with several special functions. These include key lights, macro keys, profiles, and some multimedia keys. However, the driver for the keyboard is only for windows, and it's on a CD (I found drivers on the internet, but they're the same and also for Windows). I tried installing the configuration tool with WINE but using it doesn't seem to affect any of the settings for my keyboard.
So the biggest problem is that changing any settings on the configuration tool and then saving doesn't seem to do anything. Another annoying problem is that pressing any lock key doesn't affect the LED, but does affect the lock on the system. (So pressing CAPS lock makes everything caps like normal, but the LED for CapsLock doesn't change. Same for NumLock, and ScrollLock. The NumLock LED gets turned on on startup but won't change after.) However, the normal keys that are on any keyboard such as letters, numbers and symbols work fine.
I have tried using the additional software tool but even with the CD inserted the driver won't show up. I can view the CD and open the manual, and install the driver with WINE. But installing it with WINE only installs the config tool which doesn't even work. I have also seen many questions for installing windows drivers but none of them seemed to apply to my case, as they either were fixed using additional software tool or ndiswrapper, which is apparently only for wireless card drivers.
How do I install the config tool(and the driver, if necessary) in a way that it actually changes the settings on the keyboard? It doesn't really have to be done with WINE but I'd rather use the most hassle-free way.
If it makes a difference, I am using Zorin, and the keyboard in question is the Sharkoon Skiller Pro.
