    Fn Keys


    I'm on a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ491N running Mandriva 2009, everything works perfectly except for the "fn" combinations, volume, brightness etc. do nothing when pressed. Any solution for this? it's not urgent but it may be helpful. Thanks in advance!

    Are you using Mandriva with KDE4? I know there have been some extended key problems with KDE4 that are not specific to Mandriva. Either way, you could also try setting the keyboard shortcuts your self in the system settings.
    Using Linux since June 2007
    Distros: Mint 16 KDE
    SPECS: AMD Atholon 64 X2 3.2 Ghz, 4GB RAM, GeForce GTS 250 1GB VRAM
