Like other netbooks mine also has 'Fn' key, everything works fine eg Fn+Volume up etc.. but there are keys U I O JKLM which have numbers on them also , in windows i used to press Fn + U to get 4 ( i used it rearely) but In Uber student by default when i press U i get 4 , i have to press Fn+U to get u which makes typing difficult. I have tried other Linux version also , none had this problem. I like this OS very much and i hope it's not a major issue.

Which netbook? And in which distro did you experience support for it?

If it worked in Ubuntu it will work in UberStudent. Simple as that.

Try this first:

From the top panel click on Settings (or from the Applications menu go to System > Settings) and under the Hardware category click Keyboard. In the Layout tab untick Use system defaults and then scroll to and select the correct item (Asus Laptop, I think). Then reboot.

Did that fix the issue?

If not, let's try updating the kernel to see if the driver is in the newer kernel. Run this in a terminal:

Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then reboot.

Did that fix the issue?

If it did, from the Applications menu you can go to System > System > Housecleaner and run it to remove the old kernel. Make sure you answer Yes when it asks you if you want to remove old kernel images. Then reboot again to complete.

Thanks Stephen , u r very helpful . I found it is because of Num Lock. I opened System Settings>Keyboard and unchecked the option " num lock on at startup" this solved my problem. i think others also might face such problem when a key can has superimposed characters.
