"Unknown Key Pressed"
- You may occasionally run across an error (occurring in an extremely high frequency) in your messages.log/dmesg:
atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xee on isa0060/serio0). atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e06e <keycode>' to make it known.
- The fix for this issue is fairly simple. Power down your dell laptop, and reseat the battery.
- Another possible cause may be due to your AC adapter being unplugged from the outlet, yet attached to the back of your laptop.
- Yet another suggested fix for the problem is updating your BIOS.. but since this is an extreme measure (found on the ubuntu forums.. so take it with a grain of salt), try the first two solutions before moving on to this potentially dangerous measure.
After the installation you will see that the temperature is around 60°C (Too High). You can get the temperature through:
This is because the CPU frequency is at full usage always... so before continuing with the install process install cpufrequtils, you can see further details on Cpufrequtils
- Note: using lm_sensors 'sensors' utility, k8temp-pci-00c3 reports much more reasonable temperatures (more along the lines of what windows reports) compared to this Virtual Thermal Zone. I have noticed no issues running without cpu scaling while on AC.
Follow the Installation guide.
- Suspend and Hibernate works with pm-utils
- Also works by issuing
echo mem > /sys/power/state
Resume not working after suspend to RAMTo workaround this issue edit the file
/boot/grub/menu.lstand add the following to the kernel boot line:
Backlight does not come back after Resume
You may need a workaround because the backlight does not come back after Resuming.
Install Pm-utils, and create this file:
#!/bin/bash case $1 in hibernate) echo "Suspending to disk!" ;; suspend) echo "Suspending to RAM" ;; thaw) echo "Suspend to disk is over, Resuming. .." ;; resume) echo "Suspend to RAM is over, Resuming..." radeontool light on radeontool dac on ;; *) echo "somebody is calling me totally wrong." ;; esac
# chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/radeonlight
Now to make it work you need.
And DONE, you can suspend and resume with pm-utils normally.
