fn key combinations have stop working after UP7

Postby vradypos » Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:30 am

Hi all

My update went mostly well, except for some small hiccups.
I could deal with most of them but not this one.

Some of my fn key combinations have stop working.

Not working:
    fn-NumEnter : calculator
    fn-F9 : touchpad on/off
    fn-F10 : mute
    fn-F11/F12 : sound down/up
Working:

    fn-F1 : sleep
    fn-F2 : wifi
    fn-F5/F6 : brightness down/up
    fn-F7 : screen off
I don't know about the fn-arrows (never used them)

I have no idea where to look.

"xinput test" does not display events on the working combinations neither, so this wasn't any help

On "cinnamon-settings keyboard" and "gnome-control-center keyboard" only the not working are listed, and they look ok. Reseting them does not help (through dconf)


I am running LMDE 64bit with cinnamon on an Asus x54c

I hope you can help me

Hi vradypos,

this one worked for me (Asus X55C running Mint 16 Petra 64 Bit):

box301 ~ $ cat /etc/rc.local
#!/bin/sh -e
...
# enable FN+F9 to toggle touchpad on/off
modprobe asus_nb_wmi
...

Those sources where helpful to me to sched some light on this:
