Apple Keyboard USB Aluminium Mini not fully supported
Last modified: 2009-07-22 17:58:44 EDT
Description of problem:
FN key not supported on Apple Keyboard USB Aluminium mini (no number keypad).
It is supported on the larger model, and the wireless model.
Mainline has support for the mini keyboard: fef3f571ecc2a82395c531d97b3f71a59e04e946 on Linus' tree (attached)
The patch applies on F11's kernel and is very straightforward.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FN + arrows does: pgup, pgdown, home, end.
FN has no effect.
Support for F10 could be added as well, although a different patch is needed, see second attachment.
