[Lubuntu] Fn-Keys doesn't work

Postby MoonKid » 17/09/2014, 12:51

In the past I used the samsung-tools from the VoriaPPA with Kubuntu (some version) without problems on a Samsung N220.

Now I freshed up this machine with a Lubuntu 14.04 (complete new installation). I installed the samsung-tools (ver: 2.3.1-ppa1-loms-trusty) from the VoriaPPA.

The wlan itself technical works.
The Fn-keys for backlight work.

Not working are the Fn-keys for...
- WLAN (on/off)
- Sound (+/-).

I didn't checked the other keys because I don't use them.

The significant point is:
In the past I found more than one package in the VoriaPPA. But (checked with muon) I can only see one package there. Maybe this is a hint for the problem?

What do you mean?

Does no one have this problem?
Or is the forum dead?

Runtu-lite 14.04.01 (lubuntu clone). Samsung N210.
Problem only with sound control: Fn -> / <-
Solution in russian (sorry) - http://help.ubuntu.ru/wiki/openbox#%D0% ... 1%88%D0%B8
Shortly: add to ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml
strings:

Code: Select all

     </action>
   </keybind>
   <keybind key="XF86AudioLowerVolume">
     <action name="Execute">
       <command>amixer -D pulse set Master 5%- unmute</command>
     </action>
   </keybind>
   <keybind key="XF86AudioMute">
     <action name="Execute">
       <command>amixer set Master toggle</command>
     </action>
   </keybind>
