A device driver for a Multimedia Keyboard in Linux
A device driver or a software driver is a specific type of computer software, typically developed to allow interaction with hardware devices. This usually constitutes an interface for communicating with the device, through the specific computer bus or communications subsystem that the hardware is connected to, providing commands to and/or receiving data from the device, and on the other end, the requisite interfaces to the operating system and software applications.
A Multimedia Keyboard provides enhanced functionalities like launching an application e.g. web browser, volume control, browser navigation, etc. at the press of a special key.
The project aims at providing the functionalities not yet defined in Linux for a multimedia keyboard.
