I have found other hotkeys that do not work:
- brightnessup - with sudo /lib/udev/keymap -i input/event3 returns no scan code
- brightnessdown - with sudo /lib/udev/keymap -i input/event3 returns no scan code

For local testing, I copied the attached HP_G62 map file to /lib/udev/keymaps/ , and added an appropriate udev rule to /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules and now the broswer opens when I hit the internet hot key.

For the above comment (#6) the only pitty is that the browser opens, but does not connect to the home page but to an http://4147452103..., but it opens.

I have the same problem with toshiba satellite a210. It was wrong set from start. I changed it in Keyboard Shortcuts. And now, hotkey for web browser works as it should.

I'm having the same problem with Oneiric Alfa 1

Carla Sella (carla-sella) wrote :

With Oneiric Alfa 2 (64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop CD) image, not only the internet hot key does not work but also the other tests:

Multimedia keys (Totem) - test fails for volume up, volume down and volume mute keys.

Multimedia keys (Banshee) - test fails as no hot key work

Email (evolution) - test fails hot key does nothing

On Oneiric Beta 2 pressing the internet key with firefox opened, opens the home page, if firefox is closed, nothing happens.

Don't know why but after a while I tried to press the internet key with firfox closed, and nautilus opened on my home folder.
So concluding: if you press the internet key with firefox closed, nautilus opens on my home page, if you press the internet key with firefox opened it opens my home page in firefox.

I'm currently testing Oneiric final release with all updates:

For the internet key, if firefox is open the current tab goes to the home page, if firefox is closed, nautilus opens in my home page instead.

This bug was fixed in the package udev - 175-0ubuntu1

udev (175-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  [ Loïc Minier ]
  * Update Vcs fields for precise.

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * debian/udev.initramfs-hook: we aren't using pkill anymore, so don't put
    it in the initramfs.

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Unapply patches, they are not meant to be applied in the bzr branch.
  * New upstream releases 174 and 175:
    - Daemon moved to /lib/udev/udevd
    - path_id, usb_id, input_id tools are built-in commands now
    - fusectl filesystem is no longer mounted directly from udev
    - The long deprecated keys: SYSFS=, ID=, BUS= have been removed
    - The udev control socket is now created in /run/udev/control
    - The rules to create persistent network interface and cdrom link
      rules automatically in /etc/udev/rules.d/ have been disabled by
    - Support for 'udevadm trigger --type=failed, and the
      RUN{fail_event_on_error} attribute was removed.
    - Various keymap fixes (LP: #606599, #637695, #696671, #763525, #770680,
      LP: #795694)
    - Unbreak findkeyboards (LP: #881158)
    - Lots of bug fixes.
  * debian/rules: Explicitly enable persistent net/cdrom rule generator by
    default. Upstream default changed, but this seems too much a change for
    12.04 LTS.
  * Drop move-input_id-to-default-rules.patch, race-condition-on-exit: Applied
  * jack-detection.patch: Port to new upstream version.
  * load-fbcon.patch, use_run_tmpfs: Unfuzz.
  * debian/udev.install, debian/udev-udeb.install, debian/udev.initramfs-hook,
    debian/udev.initramfs-top, debian/udev.installer-startup,
    debian/udev.udev-finish.init, debian/udev.upstart: Update to changed
    location of udevd (/sbin → /lib/udev) and the three now builtin _id
  * debian/libudev0.symbols: Add new symbol from this release.
