Assuming I'm not the only thinkpad user, any others around who
encountered that problem and have already found a solution? Or tips for
how to get the mute button to work hardware-like again?

Paul, do you have "tpb" installed?  That's the package to install
thinkpad buttons.
I have it installed and can mute, etc. My thinkpad is running
Buster/Testing now and busy, but will check in Stretch sometime today.

I upgraded Jessie on this Thinkpad and the volume buttons are working fine.

Thanks for checking. I did not have have tpb installed.
Installing it didn't help though.

Alexandre's reply makes me wonder if my setup is wrong in another
place than the presence/absence of tpb.


I also install firmware-linux* and intel-microcode/amd64-microcode, plus if you search thinkpad you will find some packages too.
