How to use(/enable) FN keys to adjust volume at my asus laptop?
I have an ASUS laptop (ASUS X53S series) and I want to adjust the volume by using the FN key and F10 (mute), F11 (vol down), F12 (vol up).
Also F9 key is not working as well(this is for enabling/disabling the touchpad).
I have seen this question but didn't see any solution.
All the other FN buttons seem to work(changing brightness,turning off display,switching off wifi).
Is there any way to do so?
I had the same problem with my ASUS K53E.
sudo apt-get install git git clone git://git.iksaif.net/acpi4asus-dkms.git cd acpi4asus-dkms make sudo make install sudo modprobe asus-nb-wmi
After every kernel update the above will be erased and you will need to re-do it every time until it is included in a kernel version at a later stage. To make it easier create a .deb package which will be easier to install.
sudo apt-get install debhelper cd acpi4asus-dkms dpkg-buildpackage sudo dpkg -i [newly-created-package].deb sudo modprobe asus-nb-wmi
I have a little different computer though; mine is a K53E and yours is an X53S, so I can't guarantee that it'll work.
I have noticed that F9 button (toggle touchpad) is not working. Any workaround for that?
This happened to me... I was previously a Mac user and this confused me... it appears as though you have to hold down the Function Key on the bottom right while pushing the vol buttons in order for them to adjust up or down.
If you press the Fn button at the bottom left corner of your keypad, next to the Ctrl button, and press F11 or F12 while you're at it, you'll be able to control your volume on the keypad.
Fn + F11 → volume decreases,
Fn + F12 → volume increases.
