For me the Brightness keys are important. They are not working. Aso i
alsaconf, which gave error that no suitable PCI cards were found. I
even checked the Mixer settings for the PCM, MASTER settings. I set
Mixer for HD Audio intel and enabled both Heaphone and speaker
buttons. Still nothing. Can u give a step by step info on how u made
it work?

Thanks and regards
