I've got a 15" PB with a backlit keyboard which works with pbbuttonsd. The latest version of pbbuttonsd has keycodes 228, 229, and 230 mapped to the keyboard backlike toggle, down, and up respectively. When I run showkey I can't get my keyboard to generate any of those keycodes.

Fn+F1 through Fn+F6 seem to work as well as Fn+F11 and Fn+F12. However the keys Fn+F7 through Fn+F10 seem to not generate keystrokes at all. I'm assuming that they are the combinations that would generate those key codes.

I'm running 2.6.10-gentoo-r7. I was tinkering with the keyboard i/o code a while ago, trying to add code to handle those keys but gave up when I couldn't figure out where the keystrokes were getting eaten rather than passed on.

Any ideas? Do I need to move to a newer kernel?
