HP Envy F Key functions not working on kernel 4.13.0-36

Post by curtc » Fri Feb 23, 2018 10:24 am

Anyone else seeing your F key functions (vol up, vol down, etc) stop working entirely on kernel 4.13.0-36?

I reverted back to 4.13.0-32 and everything is good again.

Not myself but this sort of thing is not so unusual in Linux.

Possibly a driver issue, because the drivers are in the kernel. Hopefully for you, some future kernel update won't have this problem.

Until then it's acceptable to stick to your current -32, because that minor version of the 4.13 series already contains Meltdown/Spectre patches.

I've also gone back to -32, but for another reason. With -36 I was getting a black screen and completely unresponsive when trying to wake up my Asus Zenbook after suspend with -36.
