Thread: Fn keys won't work Sony VAIO Vgn-sz430n

  1. #1

    Default Fn keys won't work Sony VAIO Vgn-sz430n

    They work just fine in ubuntu, though.

    I don't know what to do. Could anyone give any suggestions? I'm running openSUSE 11 (well, I WAS, but I went back to ubuntu because it was so annoying to lack this control, but if someone gives me a command or something that works then I'd be more than more than happy to go back to OS 11. OS 11 ROCKS! Please help! I love openSUSE!

    * redrazor39,

    try something like keytouch or lineak to make them work. IF you are absolutely sure you selected the right keyboard layout upon installation/configuration.

    keytouch doesn't recognize my keyboard

    According to YaST hardware information, I have an AT Translated Set 2 Keyboard. Do you know of something that supports that?

    I'd play around with sax2. Else try lineak. The webpage also has a nice tutorial on how to find out which keystroke issues which signal.

    sax2 is the settings from YaST admin settings right? The hardware section? I'll try that as soon as I get back on my openSUSE box

    sax2 doesn't do anything for Fn Keys

    This is the top reason telling me to ditch openSUSE, but I REALLY don't want to

    Not directly, but you could try a different keyboard there.

    So I just pick and choose until a keyboard type works? Wouldn't that take forever?

    *sigh* if only my keyboard was supported out of the box
