I’m looking to get some hotkeys on my laptop working.
Most do work (brightness,volume, display toggle)
but there are three that do not:
Fn+Touchpad (F3): I want to make this toggle the touchpad state. There are two issuses here:
- The key appears in evtest as F22, but khotkeys says “this key is not supported”… so I will probably need to remap it first.
- I don’t know the correct Dbus call to do this.
Fn+Sleep (F12) this Does generate a sleep keypress in evtest, but the system does not sleep (I have configured it to hibernate on pressing the “sleep” key in the power management settings).
I cannot suspend as my system hangs on resume, but hibernate works fine. It seems that the press is not being processed correctly.
Mail key- these are separate “easy access” buttons for mail, browser, wifi-kill and webcam-kill. All work except for mail; it behaves like the sleep key in that khotkeys accepts it as a shortcut, but does not execute the associated action. (/usr/bin/firerefox for diagnostic purposes; which is known to work with the “web” key).
Any thoughts or ideas? These are the last few little things that prevent me from having a fully-functional lappy with SuSE on it. (well, that and the suspend issue- but that’s been around forever)
