I have recently bought a Medion P6685 MD61222 (ML-210008 30025457) Laptop, next to Windows 10, I installed XUBUNTU 18.04.3 (LTS). As it turns out, the touchpad and Fn key are not functioning and are not recognized (i.e. "less /proc/bus/input/devices" does NOT show a touchpad, and "xev" command does not show any output when the Fn key is pressed or released - implying that the Fn-key combined with one the F-keys , like F10 for sound off, are not working). In Windows 10 all is working. I have updated the bios to its latest release without any luck. I have installed and tried Ubuntu 18.04, Mint 19.2 and Xubuntu 19.04 all with the same results (touchpad and Fn key fails)

Any ideas and help to debug this problem further would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.

  • Welcome to AskUbuntu! I recommend editing the content of /proc/bus/input/devices into your question as what is actually there is likely to be more useful in determining what is going on than the fact that what you expect to see isn't there. thank you for helping us help you! Also useful might be the output of sudo lshw -C input – Elder Geek Sep 2 at 15:05
