I have a dell vostro 3650 running newest Ubuntu install. I read this laptop has a backlit keyboard. I've researched how to turn it on with no luck. I've tried hitting the Fn F6 keys and the Fn right arrow key.

  • What about Fn+z? – Tim Jul 30 '14 at 11:59

According to the Manufacture,

Ports, Slots & Chassis    
Optional backlit keyboard with numeric keypad

Also, i know that for any backlit keyboard that I have owned, I have had to cycle it dimmer > FN + F5 < then brighter > FN + F6 <

NOTE: Key combos assumed from blurry photos on manufactures site!
