If you can make it work on Linux, that would be a great leap!
My most recent efforts are years old but what we found back then was that it's easy enough to get the FingerWorks software to work, but impossible to upload the configuration to the keyboard because the FingerWorks software uses old an old Java implementation of USB that is not supported in newer Java versions. That's why it won't even work in Windows 7, nevermind any Linux version.
The closest thing to success was to run a 32-bit Windows XP on a virtual machine (on any host OS), but the keyboard's DFU mode for programming presents hurdles with the virtualization, so it's still most reliable to run it on an actual, old PC running an actual, old Windows XP. and , and also note .
