View Full Version : powerbook function keys in 10.2.4

I'm using LW 7.5 on a G4 Powerbook. I just ran software update to 10.2.4 and now my ctrl-functions don't work. I usually use sys 9 on my tower so I don't know if this is a powerbook thing or a function key thing. Anyway hitting ctrl-f3 now mutes my sound instead of bringing up my surface editor. Any help is appreciated.

Don't worry, be happy. There is a way around this strange OSX problem. Simply fix the problem in system 9! Good thing system 9 is on your computer, eh? It's nice to know you need 2 systems to control one itsy bitsy computer. Here goes...

Restart with system 9 as your startup disk. Go to control panels---keyboard---function keys and deselect "Use F1 through F12 as Hot Function Keys..."

Reboot in OSX and make sure Full Keyboard Access is turned off in the Keyboard System Prefs.

Good luck, man and don't let the boobers get ya down.
