Recently bought a new laptop (Samsung 700Z) and installed ubuntu 12.04. Most stuff works out of the box, but some details are driving me crazy. I installed the fglrx driver to shut down the fans and also the samsung-tools, so I can change the fan behaviour. But:
Keys for the keyboard backlight do not work also they are mapped in /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules. The cd ejection key does not work. Keyboard and screen backlight settings are not stored, so after each reboot, suspend and even screen locks both backlights are set to maximum.
Using acpi_backlight=vendor in grub does not fix that behaviour, it makes it even worse: I cannot set the screen backlight to high values, just about to 30 percent of the possible max. Any help would be very appreciated!
