Re: [LINUX.ORG.MT] ThinkPad Function Keys

I'm using the X keyboard mappings, and that's not working.
Thinkpad Buttons (tpb) reads the kernel scan codes directly and it's not
detecting them either - though I think that's because it's not designed
to detect those functions (they're not listed in the config file).
I tried showkey. The FN key gives a scan code of 143 whereas the F3 key
gives a code of 61. However, pressing them together shows nothing. On
the other hand, for the Play key (which works), pressing DOWN shows code
108 but pressing FN+DOWN shows 164. I just don't understand how some
stuff is working and some stuff isn't.
