Interesting - this is not the case with my notebook (HP nw8240). You are
using the standard power management (klaptopdaemon)?

Fn + F2 should turn off the wireless card, but turns off KBluetoothD and the

On my system this is HW key and it turns on/off all wireless adapters (WiFi
and Bluetooth). Therefore I suspect it is the same on your notebook and it
turns off Bluetooth too.
Does it switch wireless off or not?

Fn+F3 is for the battery and works correctly

Do you mean it starts KLaptop applet?
I also have such kety (Fn+F8) and would be interested to know which
keycode/keysym should the key generate in order to trigger KLaptop. Can you
start "xev" and press the key and provide the output?

Fn+Page Up should turn up the sound, doesn't work

You should check with xev what kind of keycodes this generates. KMilo
handles this properly for standard keysyms:

XF86AudioMute XF86AudioLowerVolume XF86AudioRaiseVolume

You may want to try System Settings -> Regional-> Keyboard Layout and select
"Laptop/notebook Dell Inspirion..." - it may be that Inspirion has same keys
as your notebook. For me, selecting Compaq (Armada) enabled volume keys.

Fn+Up increases the brightness which works correctly
> Fn+Down decreases the brightness which works correctly

I think this is done in HW (true for my notebook).

Kubuntu is quite different than Ubuntu in terms of notebook support,
therefore you may want to consider creating your own page anyhow.
I have done the same (after dicussing this with original page author) for my
notebook, therefore I have created /Kubuntu sub-page:

I was also wondering how much of the testing for the laptop team occurs on
> Kubuntu?

I suppose not that many. :-(( At least there are not many LaptopTestingTeam
pages with Kubuntu specific info.
Maybe we should for start create a wiki page for this: KubuntuLaptop and
maybe describe what is done and should work and what it does not (and can be
made manually).
