[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#558009: acpi-support: thinkpad volume keys are not recognized

Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.123-1
Severity: normal

After updating to the latest acpi-support in squeeze, the volume keys no longer create an event on my Thinkpad T60 (I no longer received a display for my volume keys in gnome). After much digging around and rolling back to lenny's version of acpi-support, I found that all of the thinkpad scripts in /etc/acpi/events/ except for thinkpad-thinkpad and thinkpad-cmos had been removed in squeeze's version. I had to copy the old left-out scripts from lenny'z version for things to work again. Unless there is some error on my part, I think it would be a good idea to include them in the next version.
