Some of the Fn key combinations don't work on my EeePc 1005HAB.They control important functions such as:
- volume up, down, and mute
- launch task manager
- external monitor toggle
- WiFi on/off
- track-pad on/off
- back-light on/off
The only buttons that do work are the screen brightness up and down. This would be a great little net-book for Ubuntu if only these function keys and track-pad button would work.Update: I have tried to install
eeepc-acpi-scriptsfrom the software center but it wont install and returns an error:
Package dependencies cannot be resolved.Update: After trying to install
eeepc-acpi-scriptsto no avail I searched lanchpad and found this bug #262679. In comment #35 fioghual writes:
After some testing I found that this solution works perfectly on 10.04 but after an upgrade to 10.10 the process must be repeated again. In 10.10 everything works except the track-pad on/off and the back-light on/off. Does anyone know how to fix this? Typing is much more difficult if the track-pad is on.
I don't know if I'm correct, but in my case, after doing some research, it proves unnecessary to install it. What solves everything is:
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
replace: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" with: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor"
