Just got new lenovo X1 carbon. So far everything is working well,
issue with the keyboard.
Hitting Alt-F2 does not give 'run command'. Instead, Fn-Alt-F2 does. In
fact, inspecting (using emacs), it seems every one of the function keys acts
as if the Fn key state is inverted. E.g., without holding Fn, hitting F2
lowers the volume, which is what is suppose to happen if you hold Fn, and
emacs reports indicate the same.
Any hints how to fix? I did not do anything special with the keyboard,
other than (with kde settings) swapping ctrl-capslock.
Lenovo, like many computer manufacturers these days, figures people
use the volume button more than those wacky F-keys. Which is probably
true for most of their customers, but not anyone on this list. :-)
There is usually an option in the firmware/BIOS to turn this off.
