[SOLVED] Brightness keys do not work on HP 15-dw0222ng with Linux Mint 19.2

Hi :-)

The loudness keys do work.
All are in the function keys row.

Will be happy about clear and competent help.

Greetings, Klaus

Depending upon the machine the default key controls may not always work. It does on my Thinkpads and certain HP machines. But I just end up controlling volume and brightness right from the bottom panel. You can use the scroll button on a mouse to increase or decrease volume and brightness by just hovering over the volume or battery icons on the panel and adjusting up and down with Cinnamon desktop, MATE allows you to add a brightness control to the panel. XFCE you just right click and adjust the setting on the battery icon.

Wow, that really helped.
Hovering ... for Cinnamon works fine.
Thank you very much. :-)

Blessings, Klaus
