on my asus ux50v I have a backlight keyboard. When I close the lid and open it again, it ceases operation. My shortcut keys do not work for it either.
Is there anything in 10.04 that can allow me to change this?
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 have a new ASUS N550JV laptop with lubuntu 13.10 and xfce4 installed.
The top row of keys on the keyboard includes function keys F1 - F12.
F3 and F4 are supposed to raise and lower the backlight, but they don't do anything when I press them (whether with or without the Fn key).
I haven't seen clear step-by-step instructions in a single place on how to get the function keys working for the key
Keyboard is 100% functioning, the backlight is out and LCD needs to be reconnected inside. No rub off or keys missing. Still pretty stiff and responsive. You can decently easy mod a new backlight in or just buy the pcb part with leds.

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 Vaio Pro 13. Tried both Kubuntu and Ubuntu from a USB stick. Ubuntu worked fine. Kubuntu worked pretty nice but 2 things were missing.
- Auto keyboard backlight, this does work under Ubuntu
- FN keys for brightness setting, also works under Ubuntu. Under Kubuntu I can adjust brightness by clicking the battery icon.
Why am I telling that it works under Ubuntu?
