Can anyone recommend a decent wireless keyboard/mouse that works well with Linux?

I love my Gyration (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823172015), but some buttons on the remote aren't functional yet (most importantly, pageup / pagedn). Everything else works OOB without ANY configuration whatsoever (mouse, arrows, select, play/pause/stop/skip/ff/rew, numpad, info, back, volume, mute).

P.S. Don't always believe newegg reviewers -- I've had mine well over a year, and it's as good as new (both kb & remote/mouse), and I use them 100% of the time.

For RF:

Is relatively inexpensive. I have 2. Works well for me if you don't want to have a separate mouse.

I also have an http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823166079, which works well but is more expensive (and also has an integrated mouse - well, trackball).

For IR I have 2 Solidtek ack 571s (integrated mouse as well)

I have 2 ADESSO WKB-3000UB's (the 2nd link from newlinux above), and LOVE them. But they are not the cheapest. Newegg and Buy.com trade off on who has this on sale. I bought them at different times, and the keyboards are slightly different. The older one has an L-shaped "enter" key, while the newer one doesn't.

Yes it is very nice. I like it a lot... got one for a friend who wanted to hook her laptop up to her TV and control it from afar. I used it enough that I had to get one. They feel good and natural, has good range... It's in the room I need a wireless keyboard in the most...
