I am running the thinkpad-kernel from the community packages, and it runs great. However, I am confused about something. From the console, I can use the special key command (such as Fn+F3 to shut off the monitor) and they work. I can also switch consoles using Alt+Ctrl+F?. However, when I am in X these keys no longer work, which the exception of the brightness keys and the thinklight key. Is ACPI overriding these keys? Is there a way I can get some of them to perform their original functions?
