Anyone have luck enabling these keys to adjust brightness in opensuse 11.1? The only way i’ve found to do this is via xbrightness command switches (xbacklight doesn’t work). Any ideas/thoughts on where to look for a solution? Is it an ACPI issue?
Anyone use an HP laptop with 11.1 and have success with changing the panel brightness?
In case anyone out there can benefit, this post helped me tremendously:
My fn9 and fn10 keys utilize nvclock now to adjust backlight. When I unplug, my system dims, but doesn’t go back to 100% on re-plug which I don’t understand why.
Also, another post from the Ubuntu folks making good headway on this:
I’m running an HP dv6408nr which I upgraded 2 days ago to openSUSE 11.1 from winblows. I’m brand new to this OS, but after downloading the Milestone 1 update, my broadcom wireless, Fn-brightness keys (Fn-f7 and Fn-f8) are working very well!
I am wondering if I can get the Quickplay buttons working too, since I like to adjust Volume and Mute from there, but haven’t had any luck with those yet.
I’m also wondering about how to install antivirus scanner? Like I said, I’m brand new, love the way my system’s running now and would like to keep it running this way a while… Sorry if I’m breaking any etiquette with this posting, just trying to find help.
Don’t worry about antivirus scanners.
I recommend you keytouch for configuring special function keys.
