Samsung N110 Fn keys in Statler/Squeeze

Post by charl » 10/05/2010, 14:09

Hi there,

I have since my last post moved away from Ubuntu, now I am running the #!Crunchbang 10_Statler built on the upcoming Debian Squeeze. Really loving the system.

And I am going to stick with this ditro.

So I am busy working my through all the functions I want to have running, the Fn keys are a big one.

My work in progress post is here, ... -progress/

The previous version of #! was built on Ubuntu 9.04, so brightness was controlled using xbacklight, it seems xbacklight isn't supported on the new platform.

Any ideas of how to control to brightness now?

Probably you need the 'samsung-backlight' kernel module to enable the brightness control.
I think the current package available on the repository for lucid should work good even for crunchbang, I suggest to give it a try.
Please consider a little donation to keep the 'Linux On My Samsung' project up and running. Thank you!
