Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

This is the keymap that I have been using on my travelmate 4720 since karmic days. The keymap attached to the report fix the bluetooth off key that turns off the bluetooth and increase the brightness at the same time.

updated udev from lucid-proposed
it fixes the bluetooth key problem however lock, open web browser, and programmable key don't work properly
in the meantime i am reverting back to use the old udev and use my selfmade acer-travelmate_4720 keymap

The current update just fixes the bluetooth key and doesn't touch any other. So I take it this update improves it and doesn't regress anything, but still isn't perfect. So we should reopen this bug, but it doesn't block the lucid-proposed version from going to -updates.

I fixed the screen lock and browser keys in;a=commitdiff;h=d17c065e28fa4baac90b02b4913c7ef32d54f3c7 . I kept the programmable keys with the slightly different assignment (prog1 vs. prog2) as they are upstream, for better consistency between other Acer models. Thanks!
