Ortek PKB-1700 wireless keyboard/mouse not recognised as keyboard

Asked by Mike M

I've got an Ortek PKB-1700 wireless keyboard/mouse/windows media centre remote device. Windows detects and uses it by plug and play with no CD, on Ubuntu 10.0.4:
- the mouse parts of the device work immediately (pointer movement and two mouse buttons)
- LIRC + Infrared Remote Control detects it as a remote and can pick up some of the media control buttons (back/next/pause etc.)
- the keyboard part doesn't work at all :(

Don't know if this is related but the pause/back/next buttons will happily control rythmbox but don't pause/control vids in moovida.

Thanks for your time looking at this.
