It probably does need to be fixed in the kernel. If these
key-combinations are special then I would expect the toshiba_acpi driver
should probably handle them. However, the driver hasn't been loaded on
your system, and since this model appears to be a few years old I
suspect this is not just a case of adding a new device ID to the driver
- there is probably some protocol difference.
You could try running 'acpi_listen' (as root) and then pressing those
keys to see whether it reports any events. However, I don't know
whether acpi_listen will receive any events that are not recognised by
I'm not sure, if you are not ok with CC, please tell me
Thank you very much, acpi_listen didn't help, and module won't load in my computer:
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/3.1.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/toshiba_acpi.ko': -1 No such device
But I discover keymaps udev rules, though there is not one for my laptop:
Maybe I need to load a different keymap ... but I have to investigate how udev does that ...
Thank you again.
