[Bug 232170] Re: EeePC Volume and Wireless Hotkeys Do Not Function Out-Of-The-Box with Ubuntu (8.04 Hardy LTS, Intrepid Alpha 1)
I have a 701 4G Surf. I'm running the latest "daily" of Intrepid -
updated this morning. Confirming that hot-keys do not work.
F1 (Suspend) disables networking momentarily, and then restores it.
Here is what I catch in /var/log/messages ...

F2 (Wireless Toggle) - Pressing has no effect, no logged output.
F3/F4 (Brightness) - Work fine!
F5 (External display toggle), F6 (application button) - No desired
effect, no fault found.
F7 (mute), F8 (Volume up), F9 (Volume down) - No effect, no logged
Should these hotkeys be controlled with the eeepc_laptop driver? I
cannot find an answer on this anywhere. It seems that eeepc-acpi has
been deprecated in favor of this new module. If that is the case, is
there a better place to report eeepc_laptop bugs? I will do whatever I
can to help this effort. :-)

The Asus EeePC is a popular subnotebook computer.
With a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) the wireless (fn+f2) and volume hotkeys (fn+f7/f8/f9) do not function.
fn+f2: Toggle wireless
fn+f8: Volume up
fn+f9: Volume down
Workarounds are documented here:

Although I have not had much success at getting these working myself.
It would be great if these would work out-of-the-box with 8.04.1 or Intrepid.
