    Re: ubuntu 9.04 on ThinkPad T60, i can't see volume up/down notification

    Is this happening on none Lenovo/IBM laptops? I'm wondering because when I change the volume on my desktop using my Memorex keyboard I see a volume bar on the screen. So is this problem exclusive to Lenovo/IBM laptops or does it happen with all laptops?

    I found the following at http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=70891

    As root run:
    Code:
    echo enable,0x00ffffff > /proc/acpi/ibm/hotkey

    I could be wrong but I don't think thats going to help because the Keys still work its the display that doesn't work like it used to and still does on other computers

    If that does work please tell me because I would like to be wrong

    Thanks

    Re: ubuntu 9.04 on ThinkPad T60, i can't see volume up/down notification

    Not working here either. I did see a solution on a launchpad page where someone downgraded their hotkeys package to the Intrepid version and got their OSD back. He linked to the Intrepid package, which I downloaded, but Gdebi won't let me install it because I have a newer version installed. Unfortunately, I'm not smart enough to either install it manually or override the Gdebi problem, but I'm sure it can be done.

    Here's a link to that launchpad page: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...up/+bug/364127 (the post is near the bottom)

    And a link to the package: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...untu7_i386.deb

    If anyone can help me with the installation that would be much appreciated. I hope this link to the package helps. Thanks.

    Hey dmillard10, many thanks for this workaround! Actually, to me it was more than a mere workaround, for it was a proper solution. I had the same problem, having a Thinkpad R50e. I followed your link, and after trying Dominic's suggestion, i.e. "downgrading" to the Intrepid version of the package, not only do I have visual feedback whenever I adjust the volume or the brightness levels, but the on-screen display is now using the new notification system (Jaunty's), like anything else. Indeed, I thought that downgrading would have brought back the old notifications from Intrepid (which were great, by the way), instead of fixing things as they were supposed to be for the current version. Oh well...

    As for your request, I had the same problem downgrading to an older version, so I figured I had to uninstall the newer, first. And it worked. So, go to Synaptic, click on "Search" and type "hotkey-setup". Set it to "Complete removal", then apply changes. Now you can install the older version - you will be informed that a newer version exists and advised to install that, instead. Just ignore this, and go ahead with the installation. It worked for me. I hope it works for many others out there.

    Peace!

    Major thanks lelamal! I'm glad I was able to help out and I'm so glad you were able to help me install the package. I have, however, accidentaly disabled my computer's sound while trying to turn off the horrendously loud system beeps, so I need to fix that, but the Jaunty notifications are working just fine and the buttons appear to be linked. Thank you again!

    Re: ubuntu 9.04 on ThinkPad T60, i can't see volume up/down notification

    T60 here... same problem.

    I have also been using my T60 with Ubuntu and Kubuntu for over a year and in that whole time it runs very hot - multiple rebuilds in that time... same problem everytime.

    With WinXP the system runs much cooler. I odnt have anything wierd installed. when playing video the system overheats and auto-shuts down.I have tried a few things on previous builds...

    On a differnet subject with a Via SP13000 motherboard, hardware Mpeg2 decodiing isn't enabled and can't playback video smoothly (it works fine with fedora)... I am starting to wonder about ubuntus legendary out of the box hardware support... maybe I have just had bad experiences.

    what are other peoples experiences?

    Thanks

    Richard
