Toufik has just posted a .deb file on the Ubuntu Forum that should get the FN keys on your FS laptop working again but is in need of some testers.
After some testing myself the .deb file installed hassle free through Gdebi with a double click and the volume, brightness and mute buttons work. Not perfectly mind you as not all the buttons are configured by default yet, but easily good enough to use.
If your running the Beta version of Hardy then please head over to the forum, do some testing and leave some feedback. I’m not too sure if this will work on Gutsy or not but there’s a good chance that it will 🙂
Files installed by the .deb package..
usr/local/bin/fsfn – The fsfn main program file.
usr/local/share/man/man1/fsfn.1 – Manual on how to use the software.
usr/local/share/man/man5/fsfn.5 – Manual on how to use the software.
etc/init.d/fsfn – This is the script that starts and stops the daemon.
etc/fsfn.conf – The configuration file that you can edit to change your keys.
Nothing too dramatic here, but he’s done a great job of packaging it all up for us and it’s got to be the easiest way ever to get your FN keys working.
Thanks Toufik 😀
