The fix for the keyboard shortcut may be

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 666 /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you, your procedure works. I can use the Fn + F3 and Fn + F4 to change the keyboard backlight :D 8) :D
It remains just a little problem : i have to enter "sudo chmod 666 /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness" each time i reboot the computer. Is it possible to do that so it's permanent ?

Yes there is, and it is this

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
and paste

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 666 /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness
above the line that says exit 0, save and you should be good to go, I know it worked for some of my display backlight experiments
