Description Jacob Thompson 2006-11-23 22:07:31 EST
Description of problem: The function keys on the Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 are labeled for the following hotkeys, which in Fedora Core 6 have no effect: Fn-F1: increase screen brightness Fn-F2: decrease screen brightness Fn-F3: switch LCD or external monitor Fn-F4: mute sound Fn-F5: volume down Fn-F6: volume up Fn-F7: suspend to RAM Fn-F10: suspend to disk There is a kernel driver to turn these hotkeys into ACPI events, as well as a script to do the actual functions at http://www.netlab.cs.tsukuba.ac.jp/~yokota/izumi/panasonic_acpi/. There is an alternate version at http://www.da-cha.org/letsnote/. As of Nov. 23, 2006, there is no package in Fedora Core or Extras containing this driver or the utilities. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 6 (i386) How reproducible: Attempt to use any of the Fn hotkey sequences Steps to Reproduce: 1. Press Fn-F1 (decrease screen brightness) Actual results: Nothing happens Expected results: Decreased screen brightness Additional info: The driver is labeled for Panasonic "Let's Note" laptops, but also works with the Toughbook (CF-51 at least). Resolution: Package request for pcc-acpi kernel module and associated utilities.

This request was miscategorized. I moved the request to the Fedora Wishlist http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WishList where some developer may pick it up. Closing this bug as NOTABUG as it is not a package review bug.
