So Fn key has the same keycode on some Thinkpads
as the Menu key on other
Thinkpads? How should I fix this mess?
No, it doesn't.
All [AGRZTX][2-4][0-2]* ThinkPads only have the Fn key. It, when held for more
than two seconds or released without a combination key, will send the standard
WakeUp scancode, which the kernel will happily pass on.
Is the latter one really such a great idea?
This behavior may meet the expectation of the person who has implemented it but
the average user may get rather confused if the Fn key generates a key event
that he doesn't expect in a fashion which different from normal keyboard
I expect that this 'feature' will be reported as a bug.
It works around a deficiency like the horrid middle button klude we do for the
mouse. But while live in X without a middle button is hard the lack of a menu
button may be acceptable.
