I'm running Linux Mint 13 (Maya) 64-bit on my Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086. The Laptop has media buttons above the keyboard that are LEDs and are touch sensitive. I've tried using xev to at least get a keycode for the buttons, but none registers.
The buttons illuminate when the computer first boots and the BIOS is running, but as soon as Linux begins to load, the buttons turn off. The mute, volume up and volume down buttons work just fine, although they are not illuminated, as well as the wireless on/off button. I'd like to restore light and functionality to all of the keys. From left to right, I have an eco utility function (which I'd like to attach to Jupiter's power saving mode), wireless on/off, a sort of arrow in a box which turned all of the LEDs (including Satellite emblem and light above touchpad) on/off in Windows, play/pause, mute (which works), volume down (works), and volume up (works).
If someone could help me figure out a solution to this it would be great. And just as background, I've run Linux a total of 2 months in the past two years, and that is the depth of my Linux knowledge. In normal circles, my tech-knowledge is about 4/5, but I have a feeling that in these forums I'm closer to 1 or 2/5. Be gentle
