Description vandenzel 2009-11-12 11:45:26 UTC
I'd like to see some Fn- keys working for the Samsung N310 netbook. 

The NC10 and NC20 netbooks are implemented in the atkbd.c file in source tree 2.6.31, but the N310 is not. The keyboard issues are the same as the NC10 and NC20 netbooks, so the same force-release mapping can be used.

I've tested the following patch on a 2.6.30 kernel and it works (backlight control is one of the issues). The system was a Samsung N310 (obviously) on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 (with manually upgraded kernel and kernel source to 2.6.30).

Below is a diff -u of the same modification to the atkbd.c file in the 2.6.31 source tree:
