Multimedia keys not working under Debian Jessie

After updating to Debian Jessie multimedia keys not working anymore

It appears that new Debian packages under Jessie configure the keyboard as a joystick, for fixing it you must create the following:

cat > /etc/udev/rules.d/98-key64.rules << EOF
SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1d50", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6027", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=="1", MODE="0000", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=""
EOF

Connect and disconnect the device and that's all.

 

You can use the same for other keyboards as well, just replace idVendor and idProduct with the corresponding values from the 'lsusb' command.
