View Full Version : [Linux] The FN Keys doesn't work (espectialy for keyboard lights)

05-19-2011, 07:56 PM
I have a G53SW, i am on Ubuntu 11.04 and unfortunately, the FN keys doesn't work.

More précisely, FN+F1, FN+F2 and FN+F7 works, but not the other ones.

Its is annoying, because i cannot set brightness and switch-on keyboard lights.

Are there some Linux users here that have a solution ?

(I imagine Asus does not create Linux drivers :p)

Thanks !

Thanks a lot !

It helped me to fix screen brightness. But the backlight keyboard patch is for 64 bit system and mine is 32 bit :(
