keyboard: can’t emulate rawmode for keycode 240

Installing fresh Ubuntu 11.10 and check out what Unity and Gnome-shell has to offer, everything works great until I found something..syslog error message appears very frequent: “keyboard: can’t emulate rawmode for keycode 240“.  I remember having this problem in my previous Ubuntu 11.04 installation on my Lenovo z370 laptop, thought it’s gone back then..but to the point on installing newer kernel which is Linux kernel 3.1.

As I’m going to compile Linux kernel again to make everything work. I found a much simplier solution. Here’s how:

1. Install dkms (Dynamic Kernel Module Support Framework)

$> sudo apt-get install dkms 

2. Download the ideapad-laptop package which supposed to be fore natty narwhal but still working greate on oneiric.

$> cd ~/Downloads

$> wget https://launchpad.net/~lexical/+archive/ideapad/+build/2529783/+files/ideapad-laptop-dkms_0.1-1ubuntu1~foshan2_all.deb

$> sudo dpkg -i  ideapad-laptop-dkms_0.1-1ubuntu1~foshan2_all.deb

3. Reboot for everything to work in effect.

4. Done.
