Fn + Fx is not functioning on Asus A8HE

Bug #156934 reported by anhhung on 2007-10-25

hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Fn + F5&6 are not working. These are brightness keys.

Fn+ F9 is not working. This is touchpad enabler/disabler.

Fn + F8 is not working: This is used for dual monitor.

How do I solve those problems?

The system is an AH8E laptop.

Check your xorg.conf in /etc/X11/.

The touchpad should have a the SHMConfig property set to "on". So it would look like:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
        Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
        Option "SHMConfig" "on"

That should help with disabling the touchpad. Also check if you have the synclient binary in your path.
