Wireless Trust DS3400 keyboard doesn't work

I am an Ubuntu user and I just tried on a live CD OpenSUSE 11.4 on a laptop and when I try typing with my Trust DS3400 wireless keyboard the cursor just blinks quickly and I can’t type anything. If I unplug the wireless adapter and I use the laptop’s keyboard everything works fine. I am currently using Xubuntu 9.10 and I have no such problems (even though I’ve had this problem on Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 too). By the way I wanna ask a few questions:
Do I have the same available sofware as Ubuntu even though openSUSE is not based on Debian?
Is there an xfce version?
How long is this version supported for?
Hope you can help me solve my problem because this distro looks sweet.
