[Bug 665918] Re: Media keys not working in Toshiba Satellite U500


I erroneously left a line for the mute button in the original
61-satellite-u500.hwdb file and should be removed.

The following is the correct 61-satellite-u500.hwdb file:

# Satellite U500

Furthermore the previous and next media buttons are mapped to hex 0x10
(165) and 0x19 (163). These are the same codes that are used for Q and P
respectively so I'm unable to remap them without disabling those keys.

  Media keys not working in Toshiba Satellite U500

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: udev

  The special media keys in the Toshiba Satellite U500 do not work.
  Following the instructions in /usr/share/doc/udev/README.keymap.txt.gz
  I've tried to create a keymap to sort this out (attached), with not
  very good results:

  *The mute key was originally mapped to 'd'. Apparently it is linked to
  the 'd' key itself, because changing the mapping of this key also
  changes the mapping of the 'd' key to mute! This makes the keyboard
  unusable, of course.

  * Next/previous track do not work, even with the mapping attached.

  * There is a key -supposed to launch the media player- that does not
  do anything even under sudo /lib/udev/keymap -i input/event3. This key
  works in Windows.

  I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, and udev version 162-2.1

  The output of  cat /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor is TOSHIBA
  The output of  cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_name is SATELLITE U500

  Thanks for your help. Cheers,
