Description of problem:Fn button in keyboard don't work

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install fnfx on a asus laptop
2.try typing xev or acpi_listen in a console
3.hit the Fn button 
Actual results:
Nothing, key seams dead

Expected results:
Ket a keykode I can bind functions to

Additional info:

After some reading on the internet it seams the Fnfx is made for toshiba 
computers and therfor only work with toshiba acpi.

I was hoping it could be posible to use some of the functions in toshiba acpi 
even I have a ASUS. I find the new feature where the ACPI is no longer in the 
proc/ frustrating since it could maybe make it easier to mix in some functions 
from other manufacturers.

keyboards in controlcenter.
