Any chance you could try the 0.4.5 build? or even better a snapshot of the
current source in the 0.4.x tree:

> Hi, I bought a Matrix Orbital LK202-24-USB and have not been able to get
> it working under Linux using LCDproc.
> The display works fine in Windows however so I don't think it's a
> hardware problem.
>
> Background info:
> Distro - Slackware 9
> Kernel - 2.4.27
> LCDproc - 0.4.4
> Device - Matrix Orbital LK202-24-USB
>
> Description of problem:
> When I boot the machine I get the standard Matrix Orbital logo on it.
> When I start LCDd I get the LCDproc screen on there which says "Clients
> 0, Screens 0".
> I run lcdproc C (same problem no matter what options I specify) but the
> screen does not change. I have to to send a kill -9 as root to stop
> LCDd after that (pressing CTRL-C says "Server shutting down on SIGINT"
> then hangs).
> Sometimes when I run LCDd the screen corrupts a few characters in the
> top left corner - that's the most I've ever got the display to do.
>
> Running LCDd with maximum verbosity shows that it stops its
> drivers_getkey loop after 2 or 3 iterations, it then hangs (as far as I
> can tell).
>
> My config is as follows.
> [server] (some options removed for brevity).
> Driver=MtxOrb
> Bind=127.0.0.1
> Port=13666
> ReportLevel=5
> User=root (I did try as nobody first).

> enablebacklight=yes
> contrast=140

> keypad_test_mode=no
