https://bbs.archlinux.org – Use xev to test the keystrokes. If xev detects FN+F1 the same as F1 alone, then I think you aren't in luck.I don't know about that thinkpad_acpi module, but I never got the Fn key to work on my old compaq.I worked around this problem creating different shortcuts (usually WIN+Fx keys, instead of FN+Fx) to scripts which provides the functions I needed (touchpad toggle, audio volume control, wireless control etc). I was lucky that the brightness controls were purely hardware, so that was the only FN combination which kept working. But don't fear, you may be able to control the brig (HowTos)
