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

    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 )

    Thanks !
