[Bug 567365] Re: Eject key on Mac Pro not working


Dawning, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Eject key on Mac Pro not working

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've found that on my Mac Pro (Edit: Mac Pro 3,1) running Ubuntu 10.04
  x64 Beta 2 (completely updated as of April 20th 2010), the eject key
  on the keyboard doesn't eject the CD tray. However, on my Macbook,
  with the exact same software setup, the key does work.

  Update: As of Sept 14 2010, pressing the key will eject a CD, but will
  not retract the ejected tray.

  In both cases the eject image appears in the upper-right corner of the
  screen momentarily. Just that a CD will eject on the laptop (MacBook)
  machine and doesn't with the desktop.

  Edit: This had functioned correctly in 9.10
