Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2008-10-27 15:32:20 EDT
gnome-keybinding-properties does not show the Brightness Up and Brightness Down keybindings on the OLPC XO.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-27 16:07:48 EDT
This is likely because they're not sending the (standardized) key events and instead sending F9/F10 (or similar).  See bug 467796
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 23:18:46 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

FWIW: Testing build 20090227 from on an XO (us keyboard layout) brightness keys are still having no effect.
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2009-05-07 22:58:10 EDT
gnome-keybinding-properties doesn't show brightness up/down for anyone.

If you want the brightness up/down keys to have an effect, make sure they're bound to XF86XK_MonBrightnessUp/Down for gnome-power-manager to pick them up.
