    Ubuntu 10.04 issues and questions (volume, standby, cpu)

    I recently upgraded to UNE 10.04 x86, and I'm having a couple issues. To start, my volume applet is now gone, the volume hotkeys on my laptop won't work, and I can't figure out how to add the applet back, since the move/lock to panel options on existing applets are now grayed out. Also, when the laptop goes to sleep automatically, instead of entering standby like it used to, it seems to go into hibernate (at least, I have to boot up the laptop and choose the OS again). Finally, and this is a rather low priority at the moment considering my previous issues, but I was wondering if there was a way to automatically set the CPU governor from ondemand to performance whenever the laptop is plugged in, and vice versa.

    Right click panel, add to, indicator applet. It comes bundled with the evolution applet which you probably wanted to remove.

    See if the buttons are detected. open a terminal, run
    Code:
    xev
    press the volume buttons. Does it register them? Also, what laptop is this?

    I dont understand.

    Can you confirm suspend mode works? is the option available in the shutdown menu?

    probably, but I have no clue how lol.

    On UNR 9.10, the only way to free up a place to right click add to panel IIRC was to move one of the existing applets to the left. On UNE 10.04, though, they seem to be permanently locked to the panel, making it impossible to add applets as far as I can tell. You can see the bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/window-pi...et/+bug/248324

    The window xev pulls up seems to show no change regardless of any keys I hit, much less Fn+F11/12 (volume down/up). It is an Asus Eee PC 1000HE.

    Suspend mode works perfectly when run from the shutdown menu.

    When you run xev the output is shown in the terminal.

    Right, still no new output, even for the clearly working brightness hotkeys.

    Ah. well, i wasnt aware the panels worked that differently on UNR. Perhaps you can start a normal gnome session from the login menu and reconfigure the panels, and it will stick in UNR?

    You have to make the little white box the active window to catch mouse and key input.

    Suspend mode works perfectly when run from the shutdown menu.
    Then try gconf-editor and browse to
    /apps/gnome-power-manager/actions/sleep_type_ac
    and
    /apps/gnome-power-manager/actions/sleep_type_battery

    Look at the bottom for your options and what those keys do

    I'd tried that, the changes only stick for standard GNOME, not UNR, unfortunately. Also, terminal or white box active, I can't seem to get it to show any change when I hit any keys or mouse buttons, hotkey or not. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, I just can't figure out what. However, the gconf edit worked like a charm. One issue down, one to go?

    (Thanks for the patience, by the way.)
