I'm having a strange problem after upgrading my ASUS 1215N from Ubuntu 16.04 to 16.10 (Unity 7).

Basically only Fn + F1..F6 combinations worked properly, all Fn + F7..F12 didn't even showed up in acpi_listen.

I've tried modifying GRUB configuration file as suggested here, adding acpi_osi= and most important keys now work, but there are still glitches.

Follows a resume of acpi_listen events when pressing each key combination, highlighting those not working.

I haven't tried creating 20-intel.conf file because the netbook is equipped with two graphic cards and I'm not sure that that fix would work with the discrete one.

acpi_backlight=vendor creates more problem than it solves.

Last version of BIOS installed (0902).


acpi_listen results in this:

  • Fn + F1: standby, works well

    button/sleep SBTN 00000080 00000000
    button/sleep PNP0C0E:00 00000080 00000001
    
  • Fn + F2: toggle WiFi, no notification

    # Was ON, turns OFF
    hotkey ASUS010:00 00000010 00000000
    button/wlan WLAN 00000080 00000000 K

  • Fn + F3: nothing assigned

    ^[OR
    
  • Fn + F4: nothing assigned

    ^[OS
    
  • Fn + F5, Fn + F6: brightness down / brightness up

    Used to work correctly before acpi_osi=, now it still works but no notification is shown on the desktop.

    Following an example going from brightness lowest to highest e backwards. As you can see brightness values range from 00000020 to 0000002a.
