    Most Fn keys are working now, except for Fn-F5 and Fn-F6 (changing LCD brightness)

    Just install this package using following code:
    Code:
    gzip -d asus-wmi-dkms_999.01_all.deb.gz
    sudo dpkg -i asus-wmi-dkms_999.01_all.deb
    xev does now recognize Fn keystrokes

    Thanks nexero,

    Is this patch just for UX21A or also for UX31A?

    I've installed it on a UX31A (and even rebooted it) but nothing has changed.

    Mmh... it 'should' work for both, as it just changes the way asus-wmi kernel module handles the DSTS table...

    could you post the output of the following command?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep asus

    please reinstall, using the same command and post the complete output here..
    maybe you don't have DKMS installed yet?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dkms

    Hmmm, while reinstalling I've noticed the following error message:

    Re: FIX for Fn keys

    This dkms-package uses the header-file asus-wmi.h from linux-source-3.2.0... It will work with the shipped kernels of Ubuntu 12.04!
    rfkill.h changed in linux 3.4.0, therefore it doesn't work...

    Re: FIX for Fn keys

    I see.

    Unfortunately I had to switch to 3.4 (got it here, plus xserver-xorg-input-synaptics from quantal) to get the touchpad fully supported.

    Thanks anyway

    Since, there are reports of similar (if not the same) issues on UX31A, this thread should address these two models...

    Issues:
    * some Fn-Keys do not work
    * keyboard-backlight won't turn off
    * Power-Key doesn't show Power-Menu.. it does nothing instead, when pressed..
    (* wifi disconnects often (but signal is very good!), latency is sometimes very high (up to 1000ms, but only on 802.11a - 5GHz)) -- might be just an issue for me...
    * brightness sensor (does ubuntu already handle those kind of data?)
    * keyboard-backlight turns off after closing lid and go to standby
    * standby doesn't always work when closing lid (then you have to use the Suspend-Fn-Key...)
    * power saving is not quite perfect, I only get about 5,5~6h of battery life (using same tweaks as for UX21E)
    * there are random freezes, once or twice a day, using latest (and earlier) shipped kernel of Ubuntu 12.04 (linux 3.2.0-26), this issue is not present in Kernel 3.4 and higher (using mainline kernel 3.4.0, but power consuption is ~1W higher (equals 30 minutes!) with this kernel)
    * webcam
    * incl. USB-LAN-Adapter

    Not tested yet:
    * suspend do disk
    * Micro-HDMI
    * incl. VGA-Adapter


    Now, do you have any idea, how to bring these Fn-Keys to life?

    Kind regards
    Hi,

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX21A issues

    Regarding my freezes (don't you experience them too?!):

    http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopi...f=191&t=102158

    I just installed 3.4 from Debian testing. So far nothing changed, but maybe the freezes do not happen anymore. We'll see

    I used linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 from Debian's squeeze-backports before (which is a 3.2.18-1 I think).
