Hi on my asus notebook N73VZ.. running mint cinnamon 14 (EFI) my special Keys dont work. Fn+ backlight /keyboard sound on off/ and volume raise..
I found several threads but I m very confused about them and dont understand what I accually must to do. I have bumblebee allready running.
on console with find -name tool, i find some entries about asus keyboard. acpi wmi...

Can I activate them somehow?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Finnally solved.
Just install the kernel 3.5 or higher and then the keys work.
The display brightness keys work if you adjust de the grub boot file
