acpi_fujitsu(4) Fujitsu Laptop Extras

SYNOPSIS

To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file:
device acpi_fujitsu

Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:


acpi_fujitsu_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The driver enables the ACPI-controlled buttons on Fujitsu notebooks. The button events are sent to userspace via devd(8), and a sysctl(8) interface is provided to simulate the hardware events.

Using this driver, one can control the brightness of the display, the volume of the speakers, and the internal (eraserhead) mouse pointer.

SYSCTL VARIABLES

These sysctls are currently implemented:

hw.acpi.fujitsu.lcd_brightness
Makes the LCD backlight brighter or dimmer.
hw.acpi.fujitsu.pointer_enable
Enables or disables the internal mouse pointer.
hw.acpi.fujitsu.volume
Controls the speaker volume.
hw.acpi.fujitsu.mute
Mutes the speakers.

Defaults for these sysctls can be set in sysctl.conf5.

EXAMPLES

The following can be added to devd.conf5 in order to pass button events to a /usr/local/sbin/acpi_oem_exec.sh script:
notify 10 {
        match "system"          "ACPI";
        match "subsystem"       "FUJITSU";
        action "/usr/local/sbin/acpi_oem_exec.sh $notify fujitsu";
};

A possible /usr/local/sbin/acpi_oem_exec.sh script might look like:

#!/bin/sh
#
if [ "$1" = "" -o "$2" = "" ]
then
        echo "usage: $0 notify oem_name"
        exit 1

                else
