Enable functionalities on top of function keys like sound+/-, light +/-

2021-06-17, 7:16 AM

It seems that the functionalities that are located on the same keys as the Fn function keys, like louder or less loud, screen light + / -, internal / external screen etc, are not supported by default in ubuntu 20.04.

Can please somebody point me to a way to install something to enable these functions of even how to do it myself.

I had this on my old HP Laptop and appreciated a lot.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Philippe

Well, sorry I thought you simply had a kernel without the patch. Ubuntu 20.10 (and I suppose 20.04). Got the patch for the FNLock in the version linux 5.8.0-54.61.
