@Other function keys: I am writing from an UX31A with kernel 3.5.3-1-ARCH, and my function keys are not working out-of-the-box (except volume and display out). Is there any kernel module which is not mentioned in the text or is this information simply wrong?

Additionally the following info box says that since a newer kernel version a patch is no longer needed. A version that I don't need anyhow, because everything is supposed to work out-of-the-box. Seems a little bit contradictious...

  • "Working" means that you can see keycodes with xev when function keys are pressed. It does not means that — for example — when you press fn+f3 it will diminish keyboard luminosity : for that you must link the keycode to the functionality. I have the same kernel version than you and I can confirm you no longer needs the fix : All the keys except screen backlight are working. Bzhb (talk) 21:26, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Ah, I see! Thanks for the explanation. Mqt (talk) 21:42, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Installation section

The additional information about encrypted partition is nice, but I think installation instructions should be more modular and better accomodate the different installation scenarios : standalone arch without encryption, arch with encryption, dual boot install keeping the original windows install...

So I think that all the additional steps about encryption should be clearly flagged at optional. Bzhb (talk) 10:12, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

I completely agree Nihathrael (talk) 21:27, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
