Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236867
Sound control via hardware buttons not working with Dell Inspiron 640m
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:29:13 EST
Description of problem: The sound controls (mute, volume up, volume down) do not
work when using the hardware buttons. This via either the hardware keys or the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to increase, decrease, mute volume using hardware keys
2. Nothing happens
Sound either goes up, down, or mutes.
GNOME keyboard shortcuts detect the buttons...
Volume mute: 0xa0 (hardware button, or Fn+End)
Volume down: 0xae (hardware button, or Fn+Page Dn)
Volume up: 0xb0 (hardware button, or fn+Page Up)
Ironically, the Play/Pause, rewind, fast forward, and stop hardware buttons work!
