    Hello Guys
    Its been a while since i was able to have time to visit your website.
    But right now i need to know something before i buy.
    So I come to the experts.
    I want to buy a keyboard with macros and a mouse for gaming.
    Do the macros work on linux? can i assign things to the mouse?
    I was told that they use software integrated on the keyboard. is that true?
    I need your help so i dont spend money on something its not going to work.
    thanks in advance and all the best from Buenos Aires - Argentina

    My son uses a Logitech keyboard on his system that supports macros, and it works fine.

    Which keyboard and mouse are you looking at?

    Hello Gizmo!!!! Thanks for your reply.-
    The Keyboard is a Nisuta NSKBGZ2

    and the mouse is NSMOG67 USB 6D gaming 2400 DPI

    Main Nisuta website is

    I talked to them through webchat and they told me that those work on linux cause they dont use drivers, they use integrated software.
    But its not going to be the first time sellers say something and after you buy its not true. Something too popular in my country.

    I can't find much on them, but if they actually emulate the functions in hardware then they should work fine. That's about all I can really say, unfortunately.
