PostPosted: Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:19 am    Post subject: Laptop Keyboard Reply with quote

Looking for some guidance on what to do. I bought a new laptop (HP Envy x360 15m-bq121dx) and I have everything working except for the keyboard. All of the keys work except half of the function keys and half of the specialty keys (they're inverted on their functions). Changing keybaord layouts doesn't seem to help. Same behavior happens in KDE and a console session. One abnormal behavior is that it behaves as if I pressed the switch display key at random.

So my question is, is this a driver issue or is this something that I can remedy by creating a custom keyboard map? If a custom mapping, how would I go about doing that?

BadMoogle welcome to gentoo forum.
You enabled these options in your kernel?
Code:
    Device Drivers  --->
        [*] X86 Platform Specific Device Drivers  --->
            <M>   WMI
            <M>   HP WMI extras


Code:
   CONFIG_HP_WMI:                                                                                         
                                                         
   Say Y here if you want to support WMI-based hotkeys on HP laptops and             
   to read data from WMI such as docking or ambient light sensor state. 
                                                                                                                 
   To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
   be called hp-wmi.

Yes, I have both of those enabled. Running kernel 4.15.9 currently.
