I have bought n140 samsung. I've installed ubuntu 9.10. How can I enable the FN-keys?
I've installed nc10-scripts and it works in terminal.

(sorry for my english ;) )

There was a typo in the 'nc10-scripts' package. It's fixed now. ;)

Hi,

"sudo nc10 wifi off" seems not working on my n140. I've also tried nc10-scripts, but they also does not seem to work - tried brightness up/down, wifi on/off (fn+f9), lcd on/off (fn+f5).

Regards

So, a few hours with n140 later;-)

I've changed nc10/wifi.sh - replaced ath5 with ath9 (yours can be found by lsmod), and it just works. Keybindings doesn't work because keys aren't recognised by the system - xev showed that for example Fn+F6 works, but Fn+F9 does not. Using configuration editor (utility for gnome), I changed hotkeys with ctrl+alt+shift+something for each function. Now it works nicely:-)

Regards
martenn

Hi all,

I've done a bit of googling around on getting the Fn keys working in Linux on the N140.

I found this page regarding the N140 on Arch Linux which has some useful information regarding the Fn keys:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sam ... 40#Fn_Keys

It seems like the Fn keys can be made to work by either patching the kernel to enable things the same way as for the NC10 on kernels <= 2.6.31 or on >= 2.6.32 they can be made to work with some config tweaks rather than kernel patches.

Karmic is currently on 2.6.31 so I think I'll wait until it moves to 2.6.32 before trying this out further.

Matt
