Hey All,

I don't know if this is the appropriate spot for this question, but I figured I would ask. I have a G74SX laptop that I dual boot Win 8 and Linux Mint KDE on. I was wondering if anyone has had luck getting the back lit keyboard to work on Linux Mint KDE 14? I had Ubuntu 12.04 installed a little while ago and the back lit keyboard worked great.

I've done a bunch of looking around, but have turned up mostly dead ends. Anyone had any success getting around this issue? Thanks!

Moved to notebook area since this is a notebook question.

Works perfectly on my G74 running Debian.

Somebody put out a driver for the ASUS laptops, and the commands necessary to enable it are in the thread that @fostert linked to.

Thanks, @fostert! :)
