Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1297658
Rotation lock button (physical) produces incorrect response
Last modified: 2016-12-13 03:51:39 EST
Description of problem:
The rotation lock button on the Dell XPS 12 does not lock the rotation. Instead it has the same effect as pressing the super/Windows key on the keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
May not be the correct component. I can provide additional details if required.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press the rotation lock button on the side of the laptop.
The same result as pressing the Windows key on the keyboard.
Toggle the rotation lock.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Just updated to Fedora 25. The rotation lock (physical) button still doesn't produce the correct behaviour, but now it doesn't seem to have any response.
