Thinkpad x200s laptop buttons in KDE
Last modified: 2009-05-26 22:23:17 EDT
Good news first, many "laptop" things work out of the box in the
current rawhide on my new Lenovo Thinkpad x200s. It does suspend when
the lid is closed while on battery power. The slider in the popup one
gets by clicking on the "Battery monitor" on the KDE panel does change
the screen brightness.
But the Fn+F4 (suspend), Fn+Home/End (brightness), Fn+F2 (lock screen)
key combinations that do work in GNOME (and in Fedora 10 running
KDE-3's kpowersave) are ignored in the F11 beta KDE install.
(I did not test a few other keys such as display switching.)
It would be good if KDE power management settings (such as "When Sleep
Button pressed: suspend to RAM") corresponded to the actual behavior.
