I purchased a new Samsung New Series 9 NP900X3D and installed Ubuntu 13.10 tonight. The keyboard illumination function keys do not work. I've read on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SamsungSeries9 to edit the /lib/udev/keymaps files, however, these files do not exist in Ubuntu 13.10. How do I get the function keys for keyboard illumination to work properly for Ubuntu 13.10?
in 13.10 you have to check your product
and check/edit/add a lines like this
But it seems to matter whether you installed ubuntu in EFI or in CMS/BIOS mode. EFI-installed does not work even after those changes
for 900x3a I had to edit:
No idea why those were partially blank to begin with. Run
and reboot. Cheers!
