Hi, I have a Sony Vaio Laptop, Model VGN-FE880E. After installing Linux Mint 11 (Katya), the volume control buttons above my keyboard are useless. I believe it should be noted that, while the mute button also does nothing, it toggles the mute light that's built in to the button on and off. Also, the volume and mute buttons did work in Natty.
