Thank you. But its a i2c device and not the serial one. I browsed through the driver section and found that all input drivers are for serial devices. i2c is implemented on video drivers, but I find it difficult to relate it with my requirement. A skeletion driver or a suggestion on how to kick start would be helpful.

Make them a standard input device, which sends keyboard events through
the input layer.  You won't have to write your own X driver, and
everything will be a lot better.
