View Full Version : [xubuntu] Changing brightness via Fn keys is opening xfce4-display-settings by default in 13.10

October 20th, 2013, 08:13 AM
Hi all,

I recently installed Xubuntu 13.10 on my laptop, and noticed that every time I press Fn + F5/6, it opens a new display settings window. I went and checked the keyboard shortcut settings... lo and behold, there was a second keyboard shortcut for the display settings with the key combination 'XF86Display'. Removing it fixed the issue. Has anyone else had this behavior in a fresh install?

I'm having a similar issue on ubuntu, wit Acer Aspire One D150 since upgrading to 13.10: Whenever I switch displays with the Fn key, networking is lost. Could it be some general issue of Fn keys mixups in 13.10?

(I had the same issue on my AsusX501A, brightness keys (Fn+f5/f6/f7) now work perfectly)

Have a nice day!
