I have a usb keyboard I'm trying to connect with a usb > ps/2 (keyboard) converter so I can use it with a KVM switch. When connected this way it does not work. If I go straight to the ps/2 port, bypassing the kvm switch, again it does not work.
The keyboard does work if I hook the keyboard up directly to a usb port.
I have a Logitech wireles mouse working with no problems with a usb > ps/2 converter through the kvm switch. Also, I'm using a cheap ps/2 keyboard through the kvm switch and it works fine.
Relevant parts of my xorg.conf are:
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Any thoughts on how to get my usb keyboard working with the usb > ps/2 converter?
Perhaps the converter is not recognized as a usb device in your system.
Try... lsusb.... and go from there.

Does that keyboard work when plugged directly into the machine in question *with* the converter attached? I couldn't tell if you had already tried that from the original post.

No it does not work plugged directly into the ps/2 port with the converter.
