    I tried this on Debian Sid. The basic functionality of the keyboard works, but there is no support for programing the keyboard (g15macro etc.. does not work with this). At best, you can map the G keys like any other key within the OS.

    Logitech G105 keyboard, French AZERTY mapping.

    Everything is working fine under Linux Mint Qiana, including multimedia and progamable keys (G1 to G6). However, i did not found how to program those keys, they are all using defaults settings.
