Getting thinkpad buttons to work

Recommended Posts

Hi, have a thinkpad x61 tablet here. I cant get the volume buttons to work. I installed tpb, but when I go into tools-> thinkpad configuration I get an error about /dev/thinkpad not existing.

 

How do I get them to work with the OSD and stuff? I have gotten it working before with another top. But no luck here.

I'm running X30 and the thinkpad-configuration tool didn't work for me either, so I uninstalled it. However, try using the ibm-acpi package (available in the repositories). With this installed on my machine, the volume and brightness control buttons are functioning properly.
