USB MIDI keyboard Miditech Garagekey Mini – works with Linux only if connected after powerup

I wrote this page over 12 years ago, to help people who could use the Windows XP driver but couldn’t find it. As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter. garageke


I said midiplus is NOT offering any sort of driver for their products because they insist that they haven’t tested whether their product can run with win10 or not, I’ve purchased a wersi midi usb line to see if that helps and it returned error 28, I hope you can give me a straight answer instead of auto reply: Was working, disconnect USB and reconnect in Linux: However, they’re worth it for two reasons: The keys are not weighted and feel kind of spongy to me; YMMV.

This error code indicates that the drivers for this device are not installed and a driver needs to be installed on the device. Hope the information helps.

Hi, Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Thank you very much, Csongor. Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue where scammers attempt to trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services.

Months later, I happened to look again, and found a garaagekey mention of a GarageKey driver for Windows XP, and my search resumed, leading eventually to Mike Ajlouny at Mac Pro Systems and Software who very kindly sent me the driver.


The end keys are not protected and might get hurt if you dropped the keyboard. Check if issue persists.

New USB device strings: For more information, I suggest you to refer to the article provided below and check if it helps. It always worked if you booted Windows and then soft-booted into to Linux, as the firmware was already in. If the issue persists, I suggest you to download the driver from manufacturer website and check if it helps.

It’s very photogenic if you want to take pictures hands playing a keyboard, you can’t get cleaner than this.

However when I connect the keyboard to the switched off computer, and then power it up booting Linux it doesn’t work. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

I first thought that the GarageKey was connected by USB and that connecting it to your computer would cause udev to load some modules. After a protracted search, it appeared that there was in fact no Windows support. In reply to Krishna Prasobh V’s post on February 16,
