    Re: Asus K52 / Asus A52

    The file /etc/acpi/events/asus-touchpad calls /etc/acpi/asus-touchpad.sh. If you prefer to create a new action file called asus-touchpad-switch.sh then you have to modify the action field in /etc/acpi/events/asus-touchpad. Another solution is to edit directly the action file, as the event file is okay.

    For the notification I use this:

    notify-send -i /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/actions/touchpad-enabled.svg -t 3000 " TOUCHPAD ON" "
    Press Fn+F9 to disable"

    notify-send -i /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/actions/touchpad-disabled.svg -t 3000 " TOUCHPAD OFF" "
    Press Fn+F9 to enable"

    For the wireless led, if found that if we comment out
    echo 1 > /sys/class/ieee80211/phy0/rfkill1/state
    echo 0 > /sys/class/ieee80211/phy0/rfkill1/state
    then the led is not always synchronized with the wireless state, sometimes it's on when the wireless is off, and the other way around.

    EDIT: I was wrong about the wireless switch, now instructions are updated.

    jsevi83, that touchpad icon you found looks pretty good! Now I use it too!
    The notify-send's -t command line switch does nothing as I said, it's a common problem, here is the bugreport about it: notify-send ignores the expire timeout parameter.

    I see the differences between asus-touchpad and asus-touchpad-switch now, because you've edited the first post sometime and yesterday I'd needed to edit the sh file and then the fn+c combo problem got out. So I found out there's two different asus-touchpad file wich interferes each other and after a little correction the fn+c combo problem is gone.

    thrakdug, you were right about the wireless action file, now instructions on the first post are updated. Thanks for pointing that out, now wireless switch button is working from the first time it's pressed.

    ntomka, I think I don't have the time problem with notify-send, many of my scripts use it and they work as they are supposed to. If I set "-t 3000" notification is displayed for 3seconds.


    EDIT:

    I also noticed that my external microphone is not working. I cannot select it in the pulseaudio-applet; in alsamixer and gstreamer-properties there are two input devices, but only one of them (the internal microphone) is working. Can anybody confirm if they have the same issue? I'm using kernel 2.6.34 and alsa 1.0.23.

    Forgot to add that part, I do an error message that states:

    "cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/local/bin/pinsensed': Text file busy"

    when I run sudo cp pinsensed /usr/local/bin/pinsensed

    But the file is there in /usr/local/bin/pinsensed

    EDIT:

    I have it working now.

    I changed the input to sudo cp -f pinsensed /usr/local/bin/pinsensed and all is good. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Thanks

    I will copy again my last post in case somebody missed it.

    # That's it. Your speakers should mute when you plug in your headphones (also after a reboot). This is not an "official" solution, but a workaround until things get solved.
    This fix does mute my speakers when the headphones are plugged in... but no sound comes out of the headphones, either. Previously both the headphones and speakers played sound simultaneously.

    Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so, do you know a fix? (I'm using a Toshiba Satellite, not an Asus... not sure if that is the root of the problem.)

    Thanks

    I guess if it's a toshiba that is the root of the problem. Check here:

    Edit: don't forget to undo what you did (pinsensed).

    DId not noticee it until you pointed it out. I tried on the original .32 kernel and alsa 1.0.23, still the same issue. Its not even on the pulseaudio-applet. Another thing to work on I guess.

    Any progress on the suspend issue? I tried these links (to no avail):
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingKer...ibernateResume
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingKernelSuspend

    Has any body filed a bug report, that we can support?

    I didn't find any solution or bug report about the suspend issue. If you do, please let us know. The same goes for the external microphone.
