    Default function keys doesn't works

    Most function keys don't works anymore.
    F6 (volume off), F7 (volume down), F8 (volume up), F2 and F3 (brightness) don't have any effect.
    All these regulation can still be done using mouse.

    It looks as if you use a Graphical Desktop Environment. But you fail to explain which one (KDE. Gnome, .....).

    Sorry, I forgot.
    My DE is KDE, not clear which version. May be useful: I update regularly, Dolphin version is 21.12.3.

    Is the user using the same home directory for the different distributions? Then it could be something in her/his KDE config files.

    Try creating a fresh user and see if that user has the same problem.

    I am not so sure. Have a look at https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khel...shortcuts.html

    Under what circumstances (older OS-version, different OS, ...) did the function keys work as expected?

    Which function keys do still work "as before"?

    Is this a Laptop and the F-keys in question are labelled ("brightness up", "brightness down", ...)?

    Regards

    No. openSuse and openMandriva are installed in different partitions.

    Try creating a fresh user and see if that user has the same problem.
    I have three users:
    1) the "main" user created during installation I use almost always
    2) user created after installation, I use rarely
    3) user created today
    In none of them functions keys works.

    It is logical that the different systems are installed on different partitions, but the question was (in short) if they use the same partition for /home.

    Well, that in fact answers bot the question about the shared home and the test with a fresh user.
