Description of problem:
i8kbuttons is a daemon included in "i8kutils" to change volumen with Fn-keys in Dell Inspiron laptops.
i8kbuttons is an script that use "aumix" internally. This package is removed from Fedora Core 4 and not included in Fedora Extra:
In bug #120646:
suggess to replace "aumix" for "alsamixer" or "alsactl". Then, there are 2 solutions:
1. To include "aumix" in Fedora Extras. This is trivial because aumix rpm package from Fedora 3 works fine in Fedora 4.
2. To fix i8kbuttons from "i8kutils" package to work with "alsamixer" or "alsactl".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Presh Fn-keys (multimedia buttons)
Actual Results: Volumen doesn't change with Fn-keys in Dell laptops i8k driver compatible
Expected Results: Volumen should to change with Fn-keys in Dell laptops i8k driver compatible
I've just rebuilt some packages for FC-4 and development that should fix this
problem by using amixer. I've also taken the opportunity to clean up many other
details. Please try the new package once it's available and let me know if it
works as expected for you.
I've updated my system with yum:
i8kutils-1.25-4.fc4 from Fedora Extras uses "amixer" instead of "aumix" in
i8kbuttons script-daemon now.
