I'm experiencing a strange issue with the multimedia keys on Archlinux with XFCE 4.

I used to change the sound level with FnF11/F12 keys but after a reboot, I'm not able to use it anymore. Moreover, I can't set new keyboard shortcut (in XFCE keyboard configuration utility) using a Fn key combination (where 3 days ago I've successfully set the FnSpace shortcut (alias XF86Launch6).

However, it seems that the FnF2 shortcut works and properly disable/enable Wifi network AND everything works on Gnome (volume, keybinding)...


With an Asus Laptop, it necessary to make : sudo modprobe asus_nb_wmi and everything will work from the Fn keys to the Wifi state LED.
