I use the rawkeyboard package that came with svgalib,  ie <vgakeyboard.h> 
with grx2 and I have had no problems.  In fact I wrote some wrappers that
allow you to use the keyboard in both polled and getch-style modes at once.
Look at /pub/msdos/programming/djgpp/ in about 
a week for working examples of Linux keyboard input.

:I'm not sure if this is the right list to discuss grx2.0 library queries.

:in grx2.0 for both platforms. (Linux and DOS) ???

I think you and I can sneak in here under the interests of djgpp relatedness.
Especially considering that grx is in beta,  problems in one environment 
may well be relevant to the other.

Good Luck With Your Projects,
