I use wmii.
Weird thing is that GNOME _could_ see the keyboard and *almost* all of
the extra keys with 1.1.5 evdev driver.
Now I've upgraded to 1.2.0 evdev and keyboard doesn't work with it at
all (currently I've rolled back to `keyboard` driver with
`XkbModel` set to `microsoftprousb` and some of extra keys work even in
wmii out of the box).
