I got my 13th Gen Intel Framework 13 this morning and installed Fedora 38 on it, however the multimedia keys seem to never be recognized … no matter what I do, it always registers as a function key. Not the end of the world but I thought it was kind of odd and was wondering if anyone else noticed this and might have a solution.
Have you tried doing the combo “Fn + Escape” to switch between function keys and media keys?
I did run into this when dual booting between Ubuntu and Windows… The default state seems to be different on installation (Ubuntu function keys on, windows media keys on by default or reverse), took me way too long to figured that…
Unfortunately the fn+escape didn’t fix it. However it seems to be a transient issue or something else is going sideways on me… on reboot the audio controls buttons are working fine but for some reason the display brightness keys still aren’t working. Which is fun.
All, when you’re making the purchase of a Framework 13, 13th gen, are you receiving an email with the links to the guides? I ask this as I believe those links are supposed to be going out, wanted to make sure they are as ideally everything you need should be in that email.
Yeah so I have it intermittently on kernel 6.3.12-200. I have the issue of the buttons not working it in this boot, so I checked my / proc / cmdline to check if it did boot with the module blacklisted:
Maybe I found a clue, the issue only seems to happen when I cold boot. When the Framework is completely off, and I boot into the laptop the brightness keys don’t work. When I then issue a reboot (with the reboot command in my case), then the brightness keys do work.
That happens without changing any kernel parameters in between. Strange!
