How to use volume keys on Asus X54C?
I have CRUX on an Asus x54C. I would like to be able to use the volume keys on the laptop, but xev doesn't register them. The keys are Fn+F10, Fn+F11, and Fn+F12. xev registers F10, F11, and F12 on their own, but not with the Fn modifer added.
My Googling suggests I need to add 'acpi_osi=Linux' to my kernel line, and I have done this, but no dice.
Here is my kernel config: http://pastebin.com/qgwZizHJ
My Vaio is different from your Asus but give this a go, it (might) work-
That doesn't work.
I feel relatively sure that this is a kernel config issue. I have another Asus machine which is a netbook. When I had Arch, Debian and Fedora on that netbook, I could use xev to detect the volume keys. When I had CRUX on it, I couldn't. The main difference was that on CRUX, I configured and compiled the kernel myself from scratch. I think something similar is going on here. I just need to figure out what kernel options will allow me to use those keys.
Sorry that didn't work-
I looked and the only thing I found remotely close to kernel configuration was this linuxtopia page-
Maybe this Linux Kernel book will help if you can find it online-
I would think that instructions on how to configure the kernel for volume control would be in there.
Other than that I looked through 3-5 pages of Google searches and the alsa doc's related to the kernel archives. Here's the search I tried: 'how to configure kernel for volume control'
Free linux books are in my signature line-
