You need to enable the keyboard sys-usb forwarding permission in qubes
settings files, there is a guide on the website for that.

The best keyboards are made in a first world country and have firmware
that can't be internally flashed - the unicomp keyboards fit the bill
here and are much more secure as the firmware can't be re-written and
they are made in usa thus more trustworthy than one that is made in china.

The price is very reasonable as they are expected to last for 30 years
or so - mine is over a decade old and it still looks good as new after I
clean it and it has also survived spills thanks to the drain holes and
design that prevents water ingress.

Mechanical keyboards are great :D
