The fn key doesn’t in my laptop, it was working when using window ? so what should i do ?
Please post the output of
Welcome to the forum!
how would that be useful ?
It shows what kernel you’re on, what laptop you’re using, what BIOS version you’re on, some drivers, etc.
Sorry, can’t be politically correct reading that :
I luv’ when I see an OP:
- NOT answering an helper command suggestion
- Questioning the very command.
Hey ! Asparagus : U asked for help !
- Give us the command outcome, point !
- Or tell us you know it all and shut the thread.
Bonus : learn politeness : it is thank people who read your OP…
@nam1962 You can be PC, you know… that was insulting to Asparagus! Plus the OP was probably just wanting to know what that was going to do before running it.
@SeifTahawy54 Without some basic info about your system, it’s pretty hard to work out where to start with diagnosing what could be the problem. Hence why a moderator also linked a thread on ‘how to provide good information’ when asking for support. You will find out when you take the time to read that post that it tells you to ALWAYS provide the output of
inxi -Fza (which is a tool that shows information about your hardware and operating system configuration), properly formatted as code, so that those you are asking for help have that baseline to work from.
If you read the page linked by the moderator you will know how that would be useful.
Well, I apologize to any offensed asparagus
In due escalation, asparagus comes before cauliflower and well before dreaded broccoli. (this to show that I was overly polite)
Indeed, in this type of thread, several thousands of experiences showed me that if a garden appellation didn’t generate OP’s excuses, it was because a troll was revealed…
firstly, thanks for help i didn’t mean to be rude i just asked because i’m curious about how it would be useful .
second, i’m sorry that i haven’t read the instructions carefully.
third, there is the output

finally, sorry if you understand that i was rude
You should update your BIOS. Looks like there is a newer one released 01/12/20.
Also you can try Kernel 5.8, it fixes some laptop issues for some people.
Well, you just proved :
- that you’re not an asparagus, nor other green stuff with hairs
- that my method to demonstrate point 1 can be harsh but is efficient
Possible alternate test for your key :
Then test fn - f11 then f11
you should have
keycode 114 press keycode 114 release keycode 87 press keycode 87 release
If possible, try the same from a live session
Thanks, i’ll try this solution
Hi, i’ve tried this and the key isn’t visible.
Even from a live session ?
