The Ideacentre A310 comes with s wireless keyboard (A310-K BT Keyboard), but I cannot get it to work properly in Ubuntu 10.04.
The problem is, that it does not regognize key-combinations, so I cannot write in upper-case or use keyboard shortcuts. The Fn-key however seems so be working.
I've tried every keyboard-model in the keyboard-settings-menu I could think of. but none seems to change anything.
Anyone knows what the problem is?
This is written with a Logitech wireless USB keyboard that works perfectly - though it has become a bit nasty over the years.

A have Lenovo Ideacentre A320 and same problems with keyboard.
I wrote linux driver and it works good in ubuntu 12.04
Here is driver source code and install instructions

Thank you very much for the driver and instructions. However, the driver is not perfect. It seems the Fn-key is now permanently on for the built-in numeric keyboard, so that it is no longer possibly to use the uiopjklæm.-keys. Other Fn functions seem to work fine, and so does shift, Ctrl and Alt combinations.
The problems I have may og may not derive from this error-message, when i ran the modprobe command.
:~$ sudo modprobe -r usbhid; modprobe hid-a320; modprobe usbhid [sudo] password for mwp: FATAL: Error inserting usbhid (/lib/modules/3.2.0-29-generic/kernel/drivers/hid/

Hello, sorry i forgot 'sudo' - please use next comands:
sudo modprobe -r usbhid;sudo modprobe hid-a320; sudo modprobe usbhid
And you may turn off numeric keyboard - just press Fn F11

To make this work in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty, first install the module with dkms support:
git clone https://github.com/aleksandr-rakov/hid-a320.git
Then add the following lines to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules (the order matters!):

If the /etc/initramfs-tools/module method doesn't work you can use a bash script at system boot:
cat > hid-a320.sh <<EOF
modprobe -r hid-a320
modprobe -r usbhid
modprobe -r hid-generic
modprobe -r hid
chmod +x hid-a320.sh
sed -i '15i@reboot root /root/hid-a320.sh' /etc/crontab
