Description Suzanne Hillman 2006-08-22 17:05:25 EDT
Description of problem:
(all are Fn keys) Scroll Lock appears to be being detected correctly by X, based
on xev results. Break seems to be being detected as Pause (the key on which the
Fn key is located). SysRQ is detected, but I cannot tell what as. See attachment
(1st is Sysrq, then Scroll Lock, then Break)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hold down 'Fn'
2. Press the Print Screen button (this will get detected by X as print screen,
so may need to go to Kernel team), the Num Lock Key, and the Pause key.
Actual results:

Expected results:
Sysrq, Scroll lock, break

On normal AT-style keyboards, the Pause/Break key always generates Pause when
pressed by itself.  Break is generated with Control+Pause.
Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2006-08-25 15:11:25 EDT

While this does make it work, the fact that 'Break' is blue, like the rest of
the Fn keys, makes me suspect that the correct behavior still needs to involve
Fn and not CTRL. That, or perhaps have a note somewhere about this.

Unfortunately, the M90 has disappeared, and I will not be able to test if this
is resolved.
