Method 1 worked for me. Thanks very much for this!
Method 1 worked perfectly for me, thank you!
Using Ubuntu 11.04 Fully updated, Toshiba U305 S5107 Intel Core 2 duo 4096 RAM.
Sorry for my bad english...
Did I helped you? Better try helping someone else than thanking me.
I had also keyboard jam problem with my fujitsu-siemens amilo 1510. Ubuntu did jam when fn+vol keys were pressed.
I used this thread instructions and it fixed it for me:
Method 2 works great in Jaunty. I used the evdev source file found here.
I can't believe, after all this time, I didn't know about that. You learn something new every day,sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-input-evdev
I guess, with jaunty, I'd better create a new Method #1 file. Possibly a patch/install script. I'll look at it when I'm less busy with work- maybe this weekend.
I have been looking for this fix since I upgraded from gutsy - using a fujitsu siemens 1505, and it's been driving me mad.
I will do a clean jaunty install at the weekend, and have a go with method 2.
Can't believe I've only just found this thread!
I have a few questions...
1) After the fix, does pressing and holding down the volume up/down button only change the volume by one increment, or does it continue to increase/decrease the volume until the button is released?
2) Will the fix affect the behavior of the buttons in the Virtual Terminals? Without the fix they currently behave perfectly in the Virtual Terminals.
3) If I use Method 2 in Jaunty and the bug is fixed, will the eventual evdev driver update permanently solve the problem, or will it require some hacking?
4) What exactly does the previously mentioned "sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-input-evdev" do?
