Virtual core keyboard

Hi all,

  I have a device without a keyboard, but I still send keyboard events
to X.  Specifically I use synergy.

But just running Xorg, the keyboard events don't seem to be passed
through by synergy to X.

If  I try adding a keyboard like:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"

I get the error:

(EE) XKB: No components provided for device Virtual core keyboard

Is there a way to add some sort of 'virtual' keyboard?
