    Asus N56vm Fn Keys doesn't seems to work

    Hi guys!
    I have a problem working with the Fn hotkeys on my brand new laptop Asus. I cannot change my volume, screen brightness, keyboard back light and other minor functions.
    I have tested many possible solutions, but without any sucess.
    This model of asus is brand new, but i believe that is a solution over there.
    Thank you!

    I aprecciate some help!

    I think it might be something about the nvidia driver which i dont have installed because i've tried several times and nvidia-settings do not detect nvidia driver in use... I need some help over here...

    Have a look at this:

    I doubt very much that the nvidia driver have anything to do with the failure of the volume control keys. What keyboard did you specify when you installed Ubuntu?

    I've tried bumblebee, but when i have it installed i dont have the nvidia-settings. Whean i dont have it installed and try to install nvidia driver manually from the official website, nvidia-settings dont recognize the driver and give some error message about the xorg.conf. I just dont know what to do about that. The keyboard leyout i selected in ubuntu installation was the standard portuguese keyboard. BTW: I have a keyboard shortcut alt+F3 that isnt working, and in previous versions of linux worked perfectly.

    Is it really a Portugese keyboard? I suggest you try setting the keyboard to English US.
