Bug Description

Binary package hint: xkeyboard-config

I am using Jaunty Beta with all updates

My EeePc has a key (FN+F5) for detecting external Displays. When pressing the key
xev | sed -n 's/^.*state \([0-9].*\), keycode *\([0-9]\+\) *\(.*\), .*$/keycode \2 = \3, state = \1/p'
keycode 235 = (keysym 0x1008ff59, XF86Display), state = 0x0
keycode 235 = (keysym 0x1008ff59, XF86Display), state = 0x0
keycode 123 = (keysym 0x1008ff13, XF86AudioRaiseVolume), state = 0x0
keycode 123 = (keysym 0x1008ff13, XF86AudioRaiseVolume), state = 0x0

the first 2 lines come from "Asus EeePC extra buttons"

   vendor : 0x0
   product : 0x0

I was not sure where to report this Bug.
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting says:
3 c) if the keycode itself is wrong, this is a bug in xkeyboard-config.
10) If the events are reported by more than one input device then report a kernel bug (Ubuntu linux package) because it should only send the event on one device.

I have choosen the first, sorry if this is wrong.

Changed in xkeyboard-config:
status: New → Confirmed

Given that you're getting it reported by two devices I think this needs to be analyzed as a kernel bug first.

affects: xkeyboard-config (Ubuntu) → linux (Ubuntu)

Hi David,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily/current/ . If the issue remains, please run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 350590

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
