Thread: [KDE] oSS 13.1 Thinkpad x30 series micmute button configuration

    Exclamation [KDE] oSS 13.1 Thinkpad x30 series micmute button configuration

    If you try to assign micmute button through KDE shortcut settings and experience this message when assigning the button:

    Code:
    The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt.

    fix it by editing keyboard udev file:

    Code:
    :~> sudo vi /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb
    find:

    Code:
    ###########################################################
    # Lenovo
    ###########################################################
    
    # thinkpad_acpi driver
    keyboard:name:ThinkPad Extra Buttons:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svnLENOVO*:pn*
    
     KEYBOARD_KEY_1a=f20
    
    #
    and replace with:


    Code:
    ###########################################################
    # Lenovo
    ###########################################################
    
    # thinkpad_acpi driver
    keyboard:name:ThinkPad Extra Buttons:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svnLENOVO*:pn*
    
     KEYBOARD_KEY_1a=prog2
    
    #
    then run:

    Code:
    :~> sudo udevadm hwdb --update
    and re-login/restart for kde to pick up the change.

    NOTE: starting with kernel 3.13 micmute led works without patching thinkpad_acpi.
