For me, the following worked:
That is, once running this I got the controls and the indications. Both for the audio and for the brightness. But, once I restart I have to re-run the line above. How can I add it into the load sequence of the system, so I won't have to do it manually every time?Code:cp /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_all_mask /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_mask
I'm running 9.10 on thinkpad R50e.
Thanks in advance,
ditto. the fix works until reboot - how do you set this command to passively run during startup?
Hi, i am new to this Ubuntu and anyway, i am using a Lenovo w500, quite a lot of things not working in place. And yes, the mute button for me isn't working properly, firstly when i press mute, it mutes but the notifications doesn't indicate that and when i press mute the second time, still no sound untill i press vol up or vol down then i get my sound bad.
This probably isn't the best way to accomplish this but I added
cp /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_all_mask /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_mask
This works for me on my T60 running 9.10.
Good luck and thanks to juhaszjozsef for figuring out the solution.
I can confirm - Seems like scoot1212's solutions works for me as well - for Thinkpad R50e.
UPDATE: I'm afraid that after reboot, things went wrong again.

Seems unlikely that the volume buttons wouldn't work on such a relatively new Thinkpad. But downloading the Thinkpad special button program through the repository should do the trick. (tpb-0.6.4-2.3ubuntu1).
When applied manually it works perfectly. By manually, I mean invoking the command in console.
I tried to use the solution suggested by scoot1212, but it doesn't work.
How can one add such a line to the loading-up sequence of the system so it will be a default. Without the need to run it manually.
Thanks and have a nice day,
