i have installed Ubuntu 12.10 (64bits) (3.5.0-18 kernel) on an ASUS N56VM. Most fn+key are working except for:

  • brightness keys (fn+f5/fn+f6) don't work.
  • fn+c - gamma keys
  • fc+v - camera
  • fn+space - toggle speed.

I really like, at least, to have the brightness keys working.

Can you help? Best Regards
