    Continuous problem with fn keys & brightness

    Hi there,

    recently I had a problem with fn keys in my Vaio: after installing newest Nvidia drivers the brightness fn keys stopped working. I posted my problem at this forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=brightness+fn and it fixed it for a while.
    Yesterday I installed a bulk of updates and it stopped working again. I would be grateful for any kind of help!

    The xubuntu version is 12.10, vaio vgn-fz31z

    Re: Continuous problem with fn keys & brightness

    Hello again,

    I managed to solve my problem, here's how:

    1. Uninstall current Nvidia drivers
    2. Use Synaptic PM to download Nvidia-experimental-310 and all other necessary packages

    important: do not download/install new drivers yourself, I have tried that and it only caused troubles

    Case closed.
