    Exclamation hotkey-setup package droppe and multimedia keys will no work

    as topic title we have that problem infact

    if you give a look here:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=398846

    and

    here:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=398774

    you'll see that laptop multimedia key no more works out of the box on suse 11.0

    the solution was really easy, just install hotkey-setup package that was available on 0&#37;suse_version <= 10.3 but NOT on on suse 11.0

    my question is.. why? i was thinking about a forgotten package but i receive that answer:

    (In reply to comment #8 from andrea florio)
    > FIXED.. just need to install hotkey-etup package that is missing on OSS
    > repository.. please add it ( it exist on suse <= 10.3 OSS )

    hotkey-setup was dropped. We don't add it again to openSUSE.


    my question is? why drop a package if it is needed bye laptop to works out of the box? that's sound strange...

    anyway..if anyone have the same troubles, right now a workaround is to install the package from my home repository

    Index of /repositories/home:/anubisg1/openSUSE_11.0

    than reboot (only X server should be enought) and all come back to works properly..

    if the package will no more be added on OSS repo, i'll add it on the packman one so you'll need no more to add and home repo on your list!
    hope to be Usefull

    The package was dropped because you could do this via D-bus I think. There was tal about this, not sure what ended up happening.

    Yeah, sounds a bit odd!

    None of my keys work (HP DV6645eg), but I did manage to get volume and mute to work by messing about in the mixer (eventually), however no feedback on the screen to let me know anything was happening.

    1st) please give a feedback on bugs i linked..

    2nd) i posted also a workaround.. if it works for you (it worked on 3 different laptops) please give another feedback on bug report...


    thanks

    however no feedback on the screen to let me know anything was happening.
    you could use XEV bye shell... (start it and press no working keys(

    if you see something like that:

    keycode 176 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol)

    that means you have unmapped keys... than install hotkey-setup package from my repo and re-do it-- you should now see something like that:

    keycode 176 (keysym 0x1008ff13, XF86AudioRaiseVolume)

    that means your keys are now mapped and should work

    I submitted a bug report as you requested.

    However I do get output when I press my keys, I get the volume mute icon when I press mute, but when I use the vol up/down I get no on-screen feedback.

    But the volume DOES go up and down!

    Here is the output from all my multimedia keys if that helps:

    My keys from left to right (top to bottom in the above text):

    I'll try the hotkes setup next.

    Default Re: hotkey-setup package droppe and multimedia keys will no

    as you can see you have some unmapped keys like:

    keycode 170 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol)
    keycode 219 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol)

    try with hotkey and reboot to see changes

    Grr, I installed hotkey-setup and it didn't work.

    And now my cursor keys (in terminal and konsole) have stopped working again.

    This is really ridiculous, I'm getting quite fed up with this rubbish.

    My volume keys worked in 10.3, and the lame excuse "we no longer support laptop keys" is NOT good enough.

    I have no idea what HAL is, but he's supposed to operate my keys or something, but the pillock (colloqial British term for an item or person who purposely goes out of their way to p**s everyone off!) seems to be permanently on holiday because even when I assign my volume controls (and also the PRTSCR key by the way!!) they are forgotten on the next login/reboot.

    I'm using KDE4.1 beta2 if that makes a difference, although I don't think it is a DE problem, more of a distro level thing.
