You will notice that one of the key differences between gNewSense and
other distros is that gNewSense kernel does not contain proprietary
firmware. This implies that some pieces of hardware that work on
Debian, for instance, will not work on gNewSense.

But that applies mostly to Wireless cards, bluetooth, that kind of
stuff, not keyboards.

If you wanna se if this is the problem, you can try running Ubuntu,
if it works on Ubuntu then its probably because it uses a proprietary
firmware. But be sure to use the version of Ubuntu which gNewSense is
based on, which I believe is 7.x. Good luck.
