Description Jacob Thompson 2006-11-23 22:07:31 EST
Description of problem:
The function keys on the Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 are labeled for the following
hotkeys, which in Fedora Core 6 have no effect:
   Fn-F1: increase screen brightness
   Fn-F2: decrease screen brightness
   Fn-F3: switch LCD or external monitor
   Fn-F4: mute sound
   Fn-F5: volume down
   Fn-F6: volume up
   Fn-F7: suspend to RAM
   Fn-F10: suspend to disk

There is a kernel driver to turn these hotkeys into ACPI events, as well as a
script to do the actual functions at  There is an
alternate version at  As of Nov. 23, 2006,
there is no package in Fedora Core or Extras containing this driver or the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 6 (i386)

How reproducible:
Attempt to use any of the Fn hotkey sequences

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Press Fn-F1 (decrease screen brightness)

Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
Decreased screen brightness

Additional info:
The driver is labeled for Panasonic "Let's Note" laptops, but also works with
the Toughbook (CF-51 at least).

Package request for pcc-acpi kernel module and associated utilities.
Comment 1 Bernard Johnson 2007-04-11 19:25:41 EDT
This request was miscategorized.  I moved the request to the Fedora Wishlist where some developer
may pick it up.

Closing this bug as NOTABUG as it is not a package review bug.
