Description lm 2008-03-01 05:07:43 EST
i've an Asus A4K, 

the multimedia keys don't work at all. i searched for a module or something, but
i found nothing useful by myself.

the same keys worked well with other linux version.

if i launch xev the pression of those keys produce no effect.

thanks for attention.

This isn't a keyutils problem.  keyutils deals with encryption keys not 
keyboard keys.  I think this probably belongs to one of the Xorg components.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Can you please compile up evtest.c [1] and run it on your keyboard device (when the X server is not running). Then hit some of the multimedia keys and post the output here.

I would wager a guess that they keycodes are > 255, in which case the server will silently ignore it. The X Protocol doesn't support high keycodes.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
