Bodhi Linux and ACPI


Hi,

I installed Bodhi 5.0 on my EEEPC 1215b. Everything works well except some ACPI keys (sleep key, (dis)activate touchpad, click on tap etc.).

Can someone help me to make this options work ?

Thanks.

Get aterminal open. You need to run acpid with the '-l' option, which logs events to syslog. In one terminal, run
Code:
tail -f /car/log,/messages
or whatever your log file is. Then press all function keys, and see what's logged.

If you open the "quick launcher" and search for "key bindings" you should be able to bind those function keys to do as you want.

There is a built in Moksha command for suspending the system, but for something like disabling the touch pad you'll probably need to find a command to run online for your specific touchpad version.
