To test this you will have to compile a custom kernel for your system and boot using it. If I'm not mistaken you run Fedora 38.
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/qu … om-kernel/

The Fedora Docs provide you with the necessary info to compile the kernel.
Don't forget to apply my patch file prior to compiling the kernel, otherwise the changes won't be made.

Hay so,

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

I actually created my own patch and modified the official Arch Linux "linux" PKGBUILD and started compiling it a good 1-2 hours ago. It's going to take a while longer as this hardware is pretty terrible.

Glad to see that our patches match up though, that took me longer than I care for to figure out.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

I tried both my & your patch (separately ofc). unfortunately neither worked, mute LED still doesn't function. sad

Actually for a brief moment during boot, the LED does flash on.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Do you by any chance have a model enabled for your Soundcard?
Check /etc/modprobe.d/
maybe you have a file there, which contains some kind of manual override for snd_hda_Intel.

An override would explain, why it flashes for a brief moment during boot, but stops working the moment the override takes control.

Also, are you fully sure, that the patch gets actually applied prior to compilation.
Go into the source directory of your kernel package and check the file.
I had a similar Problem, where due to some syntax error the patch would not be applied by the build tools.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

/etc/modprobe.d/ is empty.
The patch gets applied properly, yes.

on a un-patched kernel the LED doesn't flash at all.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Check if pressing the Mute Hotkey actually mutes the Speakers/Headphone jack. The LED only gets bound to the state of one specific sound device.

What I mean by that is, for example, when I enable sound output over HDMI or my Docking Station the LED stops working.
It only reflects the state of my built-in speakers and headphone jack., because only they are handled by snd_hda_intel.

So go into your system settings and select your speakers as the output, then try to mute them (via Hotkey and via software in the control panel)

If that also doesn't work, then we might need to change the LED binding in software. To do this, first check what the LED is bound to

cat /sys/class/leds/hda::mute/trigger
cat /sys/class/sound/ctl-led/speaker/mode

This will show us what the LED is listening to. If these files do not exist, then something is not right.

The first command should return a block of keywords. Look for

[audio-mute]

what is important here, is that the square brackets are around audio-mute. If not, overwrite it using

sudo sh -c 'echo audio-mute > /sys/class/leds/hda::mute/trigger'

The second command sould return

follow-mute

If not, overwrite with

sudo sh -c 'echo follow-mute > /sys/class/sound/ctl-led/speaker/mode'

and test if it starts working (you might have to restart first).

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Wait, It works. I was using the "Pro Audio" profile which fails to trigger LED.
Is it possible to get the Pro Audio profile to trigger it?

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Great!
No, at least I don't know a way.
In my case I use the "Play HiFi quality Music" profile. Testing with Pro Audio also doesn't work for me.
Actually Pro Audio breaks my speaker output completely.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=284592

It seems like it might be possible by writing a script, which would change the LED state whenever pulseaudio events happen.
But if you want the kernel handling your LED then you are stuck with this.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

I don't think the script would work without the kernel component anyway in this case.
I've tried similar scripts in the past that didn't work.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Hi, I've been trying this script on my laptop.

Sir_Potato wrote:

Alright, I've come up with a (frankly not very elegant) brute-force solution:

#!/bin/bash

read -p "What's your sound card? Form /dev/snd/hwCxDx": card

echo "Testing GPIO pins, polarity 0"
for i in 0x01 0x02 0x04 0x08 0x10 0x20 0x40;
do
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x716 $i
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x717 $i
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x715 $i
  sleep 0.2
done
echo "Testing GPIO pins, polarity 1"
for i in 0x01 0x02 0x04 0x08 0x10 0x20 0x40;
do
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x716 $i 
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x717 $i
  sudo hda-verb $card 0x01 0x715 0x00
  sleep 0.2
done
echo "Testing COEF and INDEX"
start=0x1
end=0xff
for (( i=$start; i <=$end; ++i)); 
do
  for j in 0x1 0x2 0x4 0x8 0x10 0x20 0x40 0x80 0x100 0x200 0x400 0x800 0x1000 0x2000 0x4000 0x8000;
  do
    sudo hda-verb $card 0x20 0x500 $i
    sudo hda-verb $card 0x20 0x400 $j
    sleep 0.2
  done
done

This bash script will test all possible inputs (at least all the ones I think are possible).
You can basically put this in a bash file and run it.
While the script is running, you have to be ready to stop it the moment your LED turns on. So you start the script and wait with your fingers over Ctrl-C.
Each combination will be tested for 0.2 seconds, so you have to be quick about it. There are a lot of possible combinations.
14 GPIO and 4096 COEF commands to be exact. Depending in your case, it could take up to 14 minutes.
If you want, you can change the sleep value to decrease the time, but it will make reacting harder.

Then, when you found the combination that works to turn on your LED we can determine the one which turns it back off.

One important thing: This script will temporarily change basically your entire soundcard configuration. There will be crackling and plopping sounds coming from your speakers. But don't worry, after a system restart everything should go back to normal.

If you are unsure what command turned your LED on, post the console output generated when your LED turned on.

The card I used for the script was /dev/snd/hwC0D0 which if I remember correctly was Realtek ALC236. While I was running the script, I noticed that the output from the hda-verb commands seems to be displayed  at a rate slower (around 1s/command)  than the rate it should have been (0.2s/command), so I stopped the running script using Ctrl-C. But even after pressing it once, the command still seem to be running, so I press Ctrl-C multiple times until it stops. The next time I reboot, /dev/snd/hwC0D0 is gone. I cannot seem to find it anywhere.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

I finally managed to get it to appear again. Turns out I haven't tried doing a cold restart all these times smile, so the pins on the sound card never got reset. For mute LEDs, I still have none of them working, both audio and microphone.

Re: Enabling Mute Fn Key LED on HP Laptop

Happy to hear that it worked out for you. I was worried that I might have to remove the script, if it risks breaking hardware.

First try the commands which worked for other people in this forum. Especially the ones which also use ALC236. It seems like many of those cards use the same controls for their LEDs.

I am very occupied with upcoming university exams, so I won't be able to assist you in the upcoming weeks.
In case you find the necessary commands, post them here and I will create a patch when I have the time.

Sir_Potato, I'm a bit sad to hear that you'll be swamped with university exams; hope you do well on them though.
I had emailed you about this previously. I have the green light on making a Arch Wiki page detailing how to solve this issue located here for the time being and I wanted to know if you'd be interested in helping write it. It's currently extremely incomplete but it's coming along.

If anyone else on page is interested in helping you're welcome too.
