Re: Issues with FN keys - Ubuntu 10.04
Thanks everyone for contributing these potential fixes, but unfortunately, I still don't have backlight control (or if I do, I don't know how to implement it). I just bought a Toshiba NB305 netbook, and am running UNR Lucid. I have tried installing the Toshiba laptop utilities, fnfx and fnfx-client, doing the two recommended modifications to grub (acpi_backlight=vendor; acpi_osi=linux) including changing the quote signs, and also aveminus' modifications to the /usr/share/hal ,,, file. Hitting the Fn-F6 or Fn-F7 keys still don't affect the brightness on my netbook.
I'm wondering if it has to do with the acpi_backlight=vendor line. Should the word, "vendor" be replaced with the actual vendor (TOSHIBA in my case)? Or is there some other way of changing the brightness besides using the Fn keys?
