Laptop keyboard

Postby dcf on Thu Sep 20, 2007 3:16 pm

I have Bianca (2.6.17-11) on a laptop Fujitsu-Siemens PA1510 that I mostly use with an external USB keyboard with no problems.
I tried to install Cassandra but I get that if the USB keyboard is connected, the internal kb doesn't work.
This is a problem to me because I lose the caps & number lock leds and the use of some special function keys (volume, contrast, etc.)
Does anybody know what is changed ? (in the kernel, I think, thus I get the same with other new distros).
Bye.
Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As you suspect the kernel is one place to look into
It could also be how your xorg.conf is setup - have you got any chance to compare?

How can I find what is changed in the kernel about keyboard managing ??
The problem is the same in consolle mode, so I think is not related to Xorg.conf.

Yes if you mean a "real TTY" not gnome terminal
Sorry - but I'm clueless
The risk of things like that is why we want to limit the possibilities to update...
