Sony Laptop, Special Function Buttons

Sony Laptop VGN-NS11J

This laptop has 2 extra keys on the top panel next to the Power Button, AV Mode and Mute

These keys are detected by Natty Xubuntu as;

AV MODE = XF86AudioMedia
Mute = XF86Launch1

These keys can be activated by opening the [Settings], [Keyboard] option, selecting [Application Shortcuts] tab then the [Add] option.

Add amixer set Master toggle to the [command] box of the Mute key then press [ok] and in the next window press the Mute key to activate it.

Add a command of your choice i.e /usr/bin/exaile [this will launch the Exaile media player] to the [command] box of the AV MODE key then press [ok] and in the next window press the AV MODE key to activate it.

    Infelizmente batalho com ceratocone e podem ter a certeza que a qualidade de vida devido
    a isto.

    Sofro de ceratocone desde os meus desoito anos que sei
    o que é ter ceratocone

    Ler o seu blog ajudou-me imenso pois infelizmente
    existem muitas pessoas que sofrem disto
    Os meus votos de felicidade a todos os doentes como
    eu

    Cumprimentos
