This works _almost_ perfectly
here's what I havbe:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/by-id/usb-05f3_0007-event-kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
my laptop's built in keyboard is ignored; only input from the kinesis is
taken into account
there's one slight problem -- my keyboard now ignore left/right/up/down
arrow keys and pageup/page down keys
i'm guessing i have the wrong XkbModel value of pc105? but i'm not sure what
to replace it with
i tried to find xkb files related to pc105, but 'locate pc105' brings up
nothing on my computer
