    Eee PC 1005HA Keyboard Shortcuts

    Some of the shorcuts work but some don't like Sleep, Disable Touchpad, Turn off Monitor. I've tried installing the eeepc-acpi-scripts package but it won't install.

    Depends: acpi-support-base but it is not installable

    I found this nifty little tutorial but I don't know how to use Fn keys with it.

    Any advice? Thanks!

    Re: Eee PC 1005HA Keyboard Shortcuts

    I am interested in the exact same thing. I mostly want to regain the additional "touchpad off" key that is detached from the keyboard if possible. (I hate how I tap the touchpad when I am trying to type, so that key comes in handy big time with writing papers and whatnot)

    I will hunt as well, and if I gather anything I will def. post it up here.

    You can create a script to toggle the touchpad as I have here: in addendum section b: toggle shortcut.
    # toggle synaptic touchpad on/off
    # get current state
    SYNSTATE=$(xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" | grep Enabled | grep -Eo '.$')
    # change to other state
    if [ $SYNSTATE = 0 ]; then
    xinput set-int-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Enabled" 8 1
    elif [ $SYNSTATE = 1 ]; then
    xinput set-int-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Enabled" 8 0
    echo "i give up"
    exit 1
    exit 0
    use the name of your touchpad in all 3 places, make that executable and place it in /usr/bin then you can either run it by pressing alt/f2 and typing the name of the script or make a shortcut key combination in gnome-keybinding-properties using the name of the script as a command then use your touchpad off key as the toggle or any other key combination.

    Question Re: Eee PC 1005HA Keyboard Shortcuts

    I tried the following:

    1. Uninstalled acpi-support from Synaptic
    2. Downloaded and installed acpi-support-base from: here
    3. Installed eeepc-acpi-scripts from Synaptic.

    Now, just a few other keys work. I'm working on it...

    Someone else try it post some feedback! Thanks!
