Asus G73SW's backlit keyboard doesn't work, nor does the FN + F3 and F4 hotkeys.

Any solutions for this?

Perhaps this would work for your backlit keyboard. Just came across it.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! While this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Michael Martin-Smucker Feb 12 '12 at 17:03
Pardon me. Being a noob to such forums, I hadn't really put much thought into it. Also, I didn't take the time to peruse the suggested answer as I wasn't looking for it in the first place. Will take care to follow guidelines in the future. – Pritam Baral May 8 '12 at 21:10
You could edit this answer and add in the essential parts. – Dr_Bunsen Jan 16 '13 at 8:54
