First of all, I'd like to send my best wishes to everyone in the Ubuntu community. I've never used any other operating system besides Windows and OS X, the latter only at school or work, but in fact I've never owned a computer running anything beyond the Microsoft option. After spending the last couple of weeks doing a little research, I finally decided to blow Windows away for good and go with Ubuntu, and so far I'm really impressed! I've found software libre to cover all of my needs (no more piracy hypocrisy coming from me) and my laptop is starting in record time (usually I turned it on and went to take a leak or grab a cup of coffee while it was at it). Besides it looks great!
Anyway, the only issue I'm having with Quantal Quetzal on my Dell Studio 1558 is that the keys to adjust screen brightness aren't working. They show the indicator going up and down, but they don't change the brightness at all. I can't even change it on the Brightness and Lock menu. Is there any way for getting them to work? All of the other Fn keys seem to work well by the way. Hoping this is not so noobish as I'm already noob enough, I thank you in advance for any kind of reply.
¡Un saludo desde México!
