Are you sure the hotkey you want to use for webcam is not already used by another application (which probably triggers that error)?


NOTHING was ordered to that key combination (Fn+F3). It was not the Samsung Tools' fault, but Samsung scripts'. :) Some hotkey definitions without ordered commands remained after I've upgraded from Karmic to Lucid and replaced the "Scripts" by the "Tools". I found them through gconfig-editor (eg. /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_5: <Alt>KP_Insert). After removing such empty hotkey definitions everything works fine as well as the rc.local line suggested by you.

The old 'samsung-scripts' used to install a global configuration file for keybinding, which was of course removed when the package was uninstalled.
But, if an user changed the default assigned keys, a new user configuration file was created in the user's home overriding the global one, and this new configuration file is not removed when the 'samsung-scripts' is uninstalled.
Well, I'm glad you found the cause of the problem and fixed it. :)

Can you please try the most recent version from the bzr branch?
The problem should be fixed now.

Hello, voRIa.

I got a problem with Fn keys on my N220 netbook. I've installed samsung-tools and even updated some linux-kernel stuff from your repository, but Fn keys still don't work well. For example, Fn+Up/Down, Fn+F5 and some other combinations don't work.

Sorry if I'm too nooby, it's my first linux at all.

Here's my system info. Do you need more information to correctly define what's the problem?

Thanx

Make sure the package 'samsung-backlight' is installed.
If it's not, install it, reboot and the FN brightness keys should work. ;)

Without samsung-backlight the brightness wouldn't change at all, after installing the brightness package I only need to tip on the arrow key once and the brightness goes down by itself to the bottom and vice versa. So I only can put the brighness to min or max, but nothing inbetween :-|


for me, under NC10 Xubuntu (xfce4) I had the same problem but I managed to fix it as follows:

1 disabled the xfce4 power manager
2 installed the gnome power manager

and it worked. It seems that the xfce power manager in lucid has a problem. go figure why...

PS: no need to install samsung-backlight if your bios is OK
