Redetect Keyboard type

If the keyboard type has been not been identified correctly, rerun the Keyboard Setup Assistant. To do this, simply reomve the kbyboardtype preference file and reboot the computer:

sudo rm /Library/Preferences/

NB: if it's a standard keyboard type (e.g. an Apple wired keyboard) it may be identified without the assistant and a new pref. file will not be created.
