Two almost identical keyboards will no longer respond. The led still flashes momentarily on boot so i know they work.
This feature has not been tried for a few months.

This is a bit strange that 3.8 killed the screen backlight, despite the acpi_osi="!Windows 2012" argument. I'm somehow glad that I bought the UX32VD instead of the UX31A.
I have a MacBook Pro (Aluminum keyboard) and a Logitech Wave keyboard hooked up through USB. I had to change the Alt/Win mappings on my laptop keyboard to make the Command key act as Meta. However, the corresponding key on my Logitech keyboard seems to be mapped differently.
although i expect that 99.9% + of you loathe it when your keyboard has clicky keys, that is the one thing that i gotta have. i never watch the screen when i'm hacking away; i watch my fingers. somebody who lives in another country hacked out a key-click program based on one he has written for his son for another purpose.
Hi,I sometimes get a problem with my Asus Zenbook Ux32vd. About half of the times when I boot my system the keyboard backlight goes out while booting my Arch system. This coincides with the xfce-powermanager not displaying the normal animations when changing the display brightness (changing the brightness itself and everything else works fine).
I've google searched and searched the forums. When I resume from suspend Fedora 12 on my Thinkpad X40 the computer resumes. However, the backlight does not turn on. I can use it if the rooms light is at the perfect angle, but can't find how to turn on the backlight. Any ideas?
hi, im on fedora 18 64 bit, using a satellite p850 laptop. any idea how to get a backlit keyboard working? it worked for a couple of days after i booted a live iso of fedora 19. the boot hung and i had to hard reboot after which it started working. after installing a windows 8 drive, booting and going back to my fedora drive my backlight no longer works. any ideas what is happening?
I am using windows 7 on my desktop. I recently bought a new keyboard - the Microsoft Sidewinder x4. I was trying to figure out why my volume buttons were not working and I stumbled upon something strange. Windows seems to think that I have 3 keyboards connected although I only have one keyboard connected via USB.
