after a success story with my logitech MX-700 mouse (finally with 10 buttons), I
wanted to enable the evdev protocol for my keyboard too to be able to use all
the special keys on my Logitech Desktop MX keyboard (Y-RJ20).
result: none of the "special" keys work, or show any response when running xev.
(the keys do work with the standard protocol)
Most standard keys work, however some don't.
I'll attach my xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log and dmesg in a few minutes.

mention what distro you're running, but I think gentoo includes this patch in
I'm closing the X.org bug, you should contact your distributor instead about
