Several special keys, most importantly the 'eject' button, are not working on my keyboard.
The only way I can eject my DVD drive is by opening up a terminal and typing 'eject'. When I press the eject button on my keyboard it gives the following message in the logs so it is registering the button being pressed but it is not doing anything. Also it doesn't register this message in the logs everytime i press the eject button, only occasionally.
-laptop kernel: [ 1335.617380] atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0xf8 on isa0060/serio0). -laptop kernel: [ 1335.617384] atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e078 <keycode>' to make it known.
Does anyone know how I should go about fixing my keyboard so that all my special keys like eject work?
I installed Keytouch and Keytouch editor but when it asks me to press the 'eject' button it still doesn't notice that I pressed it so I can not assign it to the XF86Eject function. Its a Packard Bell EasyNote TX86 and I'm running Lucid Lynx. Any ideas?
