Yes, I know that sound volume keys can be defined on gnome keyboard shortcuts,
but the screen contrast only work on 2.6.11.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 03:24:31 EDT
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel (2.6.13.2). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.

Thanks.
