Hi there everyone,

Just upgraded to the Beta of Lucid Lynx, was curious so I had to :)

What steps must I follow to have the Fn keys and Brightness settings working on my N110.
Tried to follow the steps given here https://launchpad.net/~voria/+archive/ppa but still stuck.
Can't find the packages now in my software manager... or am I just missing something blindingly obvious?

The packages on the repository don't have support for Samsung N110.

Please attach here the output of the following commands, so I can add it. ;)
Code:
lspci -nn
Code:
sudo dmidecode -s system-product-name

New packages for both Karmic and Lucid are on the repository the repository now and will be available for installation in a few hours. ;)

Almost all (if not all) Samsung models suffer of a problem with the FN keys, that get stuck when used. The problem has to be fixed individually for each model, by patching the kernel (in karmic, this is no more needed in lucid) and adding support for them in 'udev' packages. This can be done by using the informations I asked you to post.

Just a question: were you using Karmic before on your N110? What was working and what was not?

Thanks a lot.

I did use Karmic before, did the update to Lucid yesterday.

The only things not working in Karmic were the Fn keys, volume was working though. All functionality of the netbook was working, wireless, sound, etc

Before Karmic I was toying around with a number of distros to see which will be the right fit. Curious enough in Moblin the brightness function did work. But the OS as a whole was very buggy, didn't even try MeeGo because it seems the project has also died down a bit. Jolicloud was very interesting and fun, but I felt restricted in it. After that I tried openSuse, Arch Linux and Sabayon. But in the end I do prefer Ubuntu from a pure usability angle. And was more than willing to try the beta of Lucid out.

Well, now the problem with the FN keys should be fixed for you too. :)
To enable the repository on your lucid installation, follow these simple instructions:
- Add the repository:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa
- Update the packages index and perform a full system upgrade:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
- Install 'samsung-tools' to have full access to FN keys configuration:
Code:
sudo apt-get install samsung-tools
- Reboot. If brightness control does not work yet, install 'samsung-backlight' and reboot again:
Code:
sudo apt-get install samsung-backlight

Then, let me know if everything works. ;)

Couldn't understand why so many updated were taking place... then it hit me,Lucid is no longer beta, but RC now. :) Speed is incredible!

And thank you very much for the help, all functions keys working perfectly, had to install samsung-backlight for the brightness keys to work. But everything is running very well, and my N110 is not well and truly on its way to being perfect.

Thanks again.

And I'll be sure to ask many more questions regarding my netbook here on the forum.

C.

Well the next step for me would be to get aircrack-ng running on my N110. :) will start with it later, now just getting some music and files moved over from my desktop. :)

Just an update on my N110... well a minor one. :)

Haven't had a chance to install aircrack yet, but I have done something that has been on my must do list for some time.

Removed all the horrible stickers from the palmrest. :) of all the laptops I have had these came off with the least effort, and they didn't leave any residue.

Now I just need a skin for the outside of the Netbook,the gloss finish is a pain when you are slightly OCD about fingerprint stains. ;)

Hehe, when I got my NC10, the first thing I did was removing the stickers (while purging the original windows installation :P). Esthetically, those stickers are a punch in an eye. :lol:
