I have installed XFCE Version of Manjaro 20.2 as a dual boot on my old Samsung NP355V5C Notebook and have run into a problem: when I try to set the volume with the function keys the keyboard just repeats the last input indefinetly (e.g. toggle ‘mute’ on/off or increase the volume to max. ) and becomes unresponsive. This only seems to happen with the ‘mute’ and ‘volume up’ function keys. The touchpad still works while the keyboard is stuck. Reboot fixes the problem until one of the two keys is pressed again. This problem still occurs after a fresh install.
I’m completely new to Linux so I might just have messed something up with the keyboard settings. It’s a german keyboard (should be T1 layout) and I selected the german (no dead keys) layout during setup.
I dont know if this is related at all, but while booting I get the following error message (The ‘*’ is a weird square character):
“Failed to start Load/Save *mess of backlight:acpi_video0”
.No other error messages whatsoever.
