Asus G53 S fn volume keys

Postby bulva on Tue Oct 25, 2011 6:10 am

Dear all,

I'm running LMDE on ASUS G53SW-XR1 Core i7-2630QM/8GB/640GB/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M (2.1 compute capability). I'm using the nvidia driver from repositories, 2.6.32-5 kernel, and after some dabbing managed to get almost all the important fn-keys to work with it (LCD brightness, wifi on/off, suspend, screen on/off, screen cloning). If interested I can post steps that I used to get the screen brightness and hibernate running. However I still don't have the keyboard backlight and most importantly, the volume keys. Does anyone have experience getting those to run on this or similar (G73) laptop?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I would be very interested in knowing how you got the clone button to work. That's a priority since I can't figure out a way to use a second monitor without it. The other buttons I would like too. I have an Asus x401a running Linux Mint 13 and I can't use most of the fn buttons at the moment. The only ones that work seem to be the suspend and wifi (although the LED doesn't light up). Thanks.
