Has no one an idea how to use the Fn keys with its netbook-specific funtions?

I assume you already got an answer. If not, the reason the fn-keys are not working is that the N150/N210N220 aren not recognized by udev.

You can update the files:


so that the product is recognized and the fn-keys will at least be detected. Most of them work as expected as well.


To get the brightness (fn-up and fn-dwn) working I just added keyboard shortcuts to a small program that adjusts the backlight, based on the idea of http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1397371 post no 9

Hope that helps! :-)
