Volume key malfunction

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hello, all. I have recently ordered a ThinkPad, and I love it. Recently my volume keys (only up/down, not mute) decided not to work. I have been unable to identity any changes in my setup that would account for such behavior. I finally restored the main functionality of my media buttons by mapping those keys to the command 'amixer set Master 5%+-' with ccsm. While adjusting the volume, however, this workaround doesn't let me know what the actual volume is. I used to have a little black OSD appear to let me know how far my volume was, where as now I am shooting in the dark. Does (HowTos)
