[Bug 50692]


It seems pretty clear that this is not going to get fixed for X but
could someone add a comment here for reference whether this same
limitation is true or not for Wayland?

  New Sony Vaios hotkeys don't work (fn_key polling)

Bug description:
  On new Sony Vaios (FS and FJ series) hotkeys don't work.

  A piece of code that enables them as been released on gentoo forums.
  The programs runs as a service and as a config file in /etc/fsfn.conf.

  Here is the dmidecode output on my laptop:
  System Information
          Manufacturer: Sony Corporation
          Product Name: VGN-FJ3S_W

  Basically, the same config (default) enables hotkeys on all VGN-FN*
  computers and adding BRT_HACK_FJS=1 parameter in /etc/fsfn.conf files,
  enables them for VGN-FJ* series.

  As an attachement to this bug, here is the fsfn tarball (latest
  version from the gentoo boards).
