Description Radek Bíba 2006-03-21 19:06:43 EST
Description of problem:
I used to have FC3 and /proc/acpi/sleep used to exist, then it was removed
(deprecated), then put back. However, it doesn't exist in FC5 to which I've
upgraded. FnFX uses this file for sleeping so this function doesn't work,
although I've uncommented it in fnfxd.conf. Looking into the sources, I think
perhaps only a small change needs to be done. In fnfx.h:

-define ACPI_SLEEP       "/proc/acpi/sleep"
+define ACPI_SLEEP       "/sys/power/state"

and in fnfxd_cmds.c:

        if (state == 3)
-            fprintf(f, "%d", state);
+            fprintf(f, "mem");
        else if (state == 4)
-            fprintf(f, "%d", state);
+            fprintf(f, "disk");

But I haven't tried it. I can, when I have time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a Toshiba laptop, install fnfx, make proper changes to
/etc/fnfx/fnfxd.conf, start fnfxd
2. press Fn+F3
Actual results:
nothing seems to happen

Expected results:
computer goes to sleep mode

Hm, thanks for reporting... could you try it and let me know if it works (don't
have a toshiba latop to test here). If it does I will commit it for >= FC5
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2006-03-22 14:57:03 EST
I've just tried it and it really works. (still assuming actions for keys Fn-F3
and Fn-F4 are uncommented in fnfxd.conf) I'll attach proposed patch so you'll
have something better than I previously wrote.
