Thanks. I'm still trying to figure out these mysterious G-keys...there doesn't seem to be any special response to them. I really hope this isn't going to require a custom kernel driver.
EDIT: Scratch that, I just figured it out!

Yep! You can see this in action in the animation demo - it basically just builds up a string of key/color combinations and sends that to the device. You should be able to implement the visualizer in the same way.

Couple of days. I got the keyboard in on Friday and started working on it once I realized it didn't work on Linux. Having the LED messages already decoded was a big help.
