[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Bad Freedom Input keyboard or poor kbdd driver on N800?

Hi all,

Can somebody confirm or deny my experience with my new Freedom Keyboard
(not the Universal, which isn't for sale in Denmark)...

I've started the kbdd driver and reniced it in various attempts with
values like -1, -5, -100, -1000. Still keypickups are slow and faulty.
Either my keyboard is insensitive in it's keys, or the kbdd driver
functions less than stellar on N800. I almost has to punch down the keys
and hold them for a short while. The keys seem to soften up a bit, when
used. But still a lot of keypresses are missed. I've watched the output of
kbdd in the shell, and it seems like the driver skips more keys the faster
I type.

How fast can you type with that keyboard? I'm almost as fast with the
on-screen keyboard...

Did I forget any information? Hope not.
