I bought an Eclipse keyboard a few weeks ago, and have not had any luck getting the media keys to work on it. Is this a problem with USB keyboard? I noticed on my micro$oft digital media pro keyboard that the media keys would not work in usb mode, but if I put the ps2 adapter on they did work.

Hi Colin, I see the same thing when I switch between ttyv0 (text mode) and ttyv8 (X11), but it goes away when the afflicted windows are redrawn. While you're running cups, could you switch through consoles ttyv0 -- ttyv7 and see if there's anything similarly garbaged on them? I do see the
