Default Sabayon Keyboard Shortcuts

Hi fellas,

Ive recenetly install sabayon 5.5 gnome and its working great. My question is how do i work the keyboard shortcuts?

I would normally push Function+F9 to turn my wireless on or off on windows, but on sabayon it doesnt respond to that. The only keyboard shortcuts that work are my touch pad, volume and the mute.

If there is some way to go around it would be great, also Ive just started to learn about Linux systems so forgive me if theres a any complications along the way, but i would appreciate the help.

Cheers.

Hi,

I think the first thing is to find out if you have the correct wireless drivers for your device. I would like to know if you can post the output for the following command.
Code:
lspci
Then we can see what wireless card you have and then see if you have the correct driver installed and if not we can get the driver that you need and get you going.

Cheers!

Hi,

1. I need you to download this file.
2. Unzip it to a folder, and copy the "iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode" file to "/lib/firmware"
3. And then reboot the machine

That sets the IWL5100AGN driver. Then we can work on enabling your wireless if it doesn't do it itself.

Cheers!

hey wmorri,

Ive managed to install the downloaded file to the directory and rebooted it. But the wireless keyboard shortcut is still a no go. Perhaps ive should have mentioned this earlier which ive forgotten, its a 64 bit Sabayon. Could there be a 64bit driver?

Cheers!

Hi,

It should work either way. Can you tell me what make and model laptop you have and we can try and get this to work. If not then there are a couple of teminal commands that will enable your wireless.

Hi,

My laptop is a Samsung R620 (NP-R620H to be specific) pretty old model from what Ive heard. The wireless works but it cant be turned off when i want it and it drains my battery considerably when its on when I dont need it, so I was just seeing if my laptop can have that shortcut feature.

Cheers

Hi,

Try using the following commands to "shut off" and "turn on" you wireless. What you are really doing is disabling and enabling the wireless.

Code:
iwlan up 
iwlan down
