I'm not a shill or anything. I just bought this keyboard tonight and it looks like a good deal for the living room with touchpad and a mouse button on the left side of the keybaord.
$20 here https://www.dailysteals.com/icemonkey/./#deals/16832
$25 from newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6823126315
Looks like you might have to pair and configure it on a Windows box first but the settings will keep according to one review I read.

after using this keyboard for a couple of weeks and an install I absolutely love this keyboard. It is possibly the best living room keyboard since my oddball infra-red one. The touch pad is a little small if you are used to a mac or something but is very useable. the left click button on the left side of the keyboard gets used a lot. You do have to hook it up to mac or windows box to pair the device with the receiver and then you can configure a few settings. I wish I could assign the media button to be a right click but it seems that all you can assign it to do is shortcut keys.
This is a great keyboard especially if you can find it for $20. I'm looking for a second one for my SurfaceRT (it was a gift don't judge me).

Hi

I have same keyboard.
My "music" key is mapped to mouse right button
and "windows" key is mapped to mouse middle button

If I remember correctly, all i have to do is use the xev program to find key codes to music and windows keys and then create .Xmodmap file to /home/mythtv folder
Code:
keycode 133 = Pointer_Button2
keycode 234 = Pointer_Button3


And adding this line in /home/mythtv/.xinitrc:
Code:
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap


(LinHES R7.4)

And annoying tap-to-click function can be disabled/enabled to hold down the blue function key and the left trackpad key simultaneously.

it turns out #133 is the windows button
So a lot of the function keys are 133 and a letter or number so the "show desktop" button that is hanging over F1 is 133-on 40-on 40-off 133-off which is "windows button + d"
I really wish that the logitech keyboard would remember it's settings after it's powered off or just left the F1-F12 keys alone without their software. I could remap these keys using Xmodmap but that wouldn't help me when I need to hit F1 to get into BIOS. (imagine me shaking my fist violently at Logitech)!
